Pain in the big toe

I am experiencing pain on the side and bottom of my big toe. Consulted a doctor, who suggested few blood test and now has diagnosed it as gout. I can see a little swelling on the toe though. But I experienced the pain only after a recent running on the roads I am a runner who trains and clocks a mileage of 40km/week.
