it's not gout. Gout usually always affects toes and sometimes knee joints. Its unbelievably painful and even a tissue touching it makes you scream and cry. Its one of the most painful things there are. Sounds like you might have damaged or inflamed a tendon or ligament. Doesn't sound like arthritis either. Just give it some time and see.
