In my experience it doesn’t feel the same in the knee (in particular the skin doesn’t become sensitive like the skin around the big toe joint). It could be much worse than what you describe but after a while you can develop more frequent mild symptoms on top of the serious flares.
That said, I also am not convinced that what you have in the knee right now is a gout. It hardly matters anyway because you should get your gout treated if you are getting flares anywhere. If you let gout fester for years, it’s likely going to get worse and it could also cause permanent damage. It’s a slow disease so treating it doesn’t feel urgent but you could end up bitterly regretting having neglected it…
