In brief: The concern would be

Damage of bone, the gout can actually eat away at bone ( the ur ate crystals that is) also one must realize this is not just a disorder of the affected joint.
Your kidneys and heart can be affected as well. Instead of getting repeated attacks, treat the disease and control it.

In brief: No/Yes

Gout attacks are by definition inflammation; repeated attacks will result in calcium deposition that leads to larger joints and deformity that in itself may lead to more inflammation.
Best approach to treat this is acid free diet; increase intake of alkaline water; large quantities of anti-flammatory herbs such as cats claw, food enzymes and protandim check www.Medacpc.Com.

In brief: Yes

In some people, gout can become chronic going from acute, self-limited attacks to chronic, daily pain and inflammation.
This is usually associated with the development of tophi, or large visible crystal deposits. This is treatable with aggressive urate lowering therapy.
