Osteoarthritis and gout.

I have o/a in my knees and left wrist. I may have it in my right wrist but it is deformed due to a tumour and having part of my radius replaced with my fibula. My question is can you have gout in your wrist at the same time as osteoarthritis. I ask this because I had pain in my wrist and arm that had to be calmed by taking oramorph. I have never known another pain like it (worse than childbirth) I have only ever had gout once before and it was in the same wrist after being prescribed water tablets. I am petrified of it happening again.
