Sjogren's and Early Degenerative Changes in Hips

Late last year, I had a CT done of my abdomen and pelvis for pain on the upper right side. The scan didn't show much except some kidney stones, which I expected. However, the radiologist noted "presence of early degenerative changes in hip joints bilateraly with subchonral cyst formation". Its only been a year since my dx, so still learning......is it common to develop arthritis with Sjogren's?

Also, does it affect your bladder? My ob/gyn ran an ultrasound when I complained of very low back pain. He said all looked fine except my bladder wall looked "thin".

Thanks!

Re: Sjogren's and Early Degenerative Changes in Hips

sorry for the rather quick reply, but sjogrens can affect, tissue, bones and muscle. i have cysts throughout my body, on my organs, growing on my bones, etc. our cells are whacked out and attack the good things in our body. reason for pain and all of the other multiple symtoms we suffer with. hope this helps.
