If eating too much meat is bad for my bones cause i already have medical problems in knees and they are swollen for the past 2 w my knees are very swollen and they hurt when i walk and not able to bend

Eating

Eating meat is likely not the cause of your knee pain. It sounds like you are dealing with a type of arthritis, however an infectious cause needs to be ruled out. You should see a medical professional right away for an evaluation and tratment. In the meantime try wrapping your knees with an ace bandage (not too tight), try ibuprofen or advil, rest as much as possible, and ice them as needed. Good luck

Why are my legs red almost like a sunburn, from my knees to my ankles? They aren't swollen & they don't hurt.

Unusual

Normally when we see red lower legs its associated with pain from cellulitis or circulation . May be allergic reaction to something. See your doctor

Why does my stomach,brests,and legs hurt after i walked four miles. I notice the back of my two knees are swollen today?

Cannot diagnose

Leg
If this continues, go and see your doctor. Without a full history and physical exam have no way of even guessing what may be going on. Good luck and hope you are well.

It sounds as is you have an inflammatory arthritis. If this onset occurred suddenly it may be viral. There are numerous other causes , however. Have it evaluated.

Could plantar faciitis, knees that hurt going down stairs or up, trigger fingers in both hands w/ swollen lumps in palms be related? CRP elev SED low

Plantar fasciitis

Is a common diagnosis for heel pain. when one combines the other conditions mentioned, there are autoimmune dissorders that come to mind. A very common autoimmune condition inclueds RA (rheumatoid arthritis) and the panus that could associated with it. Additional tests are indicated. See you physician for other tests.

Dr. Troy W. Ross answered:

I have hurt both of my knees exercising. The entire knee hurts. They're not swollen or bruised no crunching but hurt A LOT. what's the best treatment?

Rest

Knee_pain_
For overuse injuries it's best to take a break for a few days. Cold packs will help to reduce swelling and pain but be careful not to put frozen objects directly on the skin (bags of frozen peas work really well). You can also use an anti-inflammatory medication for a few days.
