Hi Cathy
It is not clear from your description where exactly the swelling is. Swelling can be due to an injury of the muscles and ligaments, for example, if you tore or hurt a muscle while doing exercise. It could also be swelling due to decreased blood circulation or lymphatic drainage.  It would be best to go to the doctor for an examination of the leg. Good luck.
