Is it unusual to be diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis and osteoarthritis?

People can suffer from more than one type of arthritis.  You may have had osteoarthritis that was present but was asymptomatic and/or not causing problems until the psoriatic arthritis began.  At that point both types of arthritis may flare.
