Knee pain,swelling,protrusions on tongue, PCP for allergy and milk positive

About a yr ago I developed significant swelling and pain in my knees. I walked 5 mls/day prior to this and NEVER had any knee pain . The pain over the last year often is associated with a (almost line) of putrusions of the buds on my tongue 0 where the top of the tongue meets the underneath part of the tongue. The putrusions are not red or sore. ....... and sometimes associated with a light rash (appears like the butterfly rash but does not spare my mouth folds). The knee pain is mostly with bending movement - in and out of tub, on and off toilet, up and down stairs and on and off couch etc. The pain a couple of months ago very debilitating. Originally went to arthritis specialst and ruled out of lupus , lymes, ra, and many, many other things. Had a dose of steriods when knee pain was very debilitating and helped 95%. Currently in PT cuz insurance denied MRI until PT per ortho consult who thinks knee cap issue. ...... but hit both knees overnight. PT not really helping. I feel like often tongue THING and knee pain/swelling happen at same time. PCP tested for several allergies and milk slightly positive. Eliminated and improvement in gassy stomach ( LOL ) but didn t change knees. Never any other health issues and am 42 y\o - with exception of case of PARVO virus about 4 years ago. Not sure if this is related at all but over last year have had some bad sore throats and about 2 wks ago pcp put me on another steriod and antibiotic for severe sore throat and horseness. still have a little sore throat and horseness. I am very active - coach basketball, softball, volleyball and have 2 young children. When systoms bad I could never get down on the floor or squat. I am very frustrated and have seen several specialsts. Any ideas?

being a coach may be a simple trauma or tear of knees ligaments or simple inflammation of joints...may cause this pain. hot water mixed with salt may be used for fomentation over knees.warm olive oil massage also may help relieve pain since you have RULED OUT other permanent disease possibilities.
