In brief: See doctor

This is gout until proven otherwise It is only affecting 1 joint.
The big toe is involved in over 50% of all cases.

In brief: Urgent care

Pain, swelling, and warmth point to an inflammatory cause rather than a mechanical cause such as osteoarthrosis or ill-fitting shoes.
Gout is high on the list of diagnoses but unusual at age 21. What concerns me are the possibilities of infection or fracture. I would seek help urgently through your primary care physician or urgent care.
