Thanks for your query.
According to your description , pain over feet and knee seems to be inflammatory in nature. It could be due to an acute attack of gout.
I advice you to give you rest to the part affected, take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin 1 tablet with food as and when required (upto 4 tablets daily) to reduce pain and inflammation and consult your doctor for thorough examination of feet and rule out any infective cause.
I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
Warm Regards
