I suffer from gout and pain in big toe (hallux), how long will pain last?

I am a cross country skier and have gout in big toe. For the past week I developed pain in big toe but I kept on skiing on it. I only found out today that I had gout. The inflammation is now gone but pain persists. Should I have stopped, did I make my gout worse? Will the pain continue? For how long?

Age: 45
Medications: Naproxen, Synthroid

You will probably experience pain for a couple more weeks and then get back to normal. Having put pressure on your toe would not have aggravated your gout.
