Do you have any other symptoms?
These may a sign of autoimmune disease like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, or gout, viral or bacterial infection of joints.
I would suggest you to please schedule an appointment with an orthopedic doctor as soon as possible. In the meantime you can take OTC NSAIDS, they will help reduce the joint swelling and pain. Take care!
