If you do have Gout. I hope you are eating a proper diet, staying away from Red meat in particular, you should also limit your intake of dairy products. As far as your wrist goes I hope you have consulted a doctor. I dont really know what gluing the wrist in a nuetral posion means, but If it is do to a fall and your wrist is not propotioned correctly then I would recommend an Orthopedic surgeon to help this problem
