The orthopedic doctor isn't convinced that it's a fracture. The spot is really close to a joint and there is alot of inflammation surrounding it. So he thinks it might be related to the Sjogren's. He said that a cortisone shot doens't help with autoimmune stuff. Thank goodness! Have you ever had a cortisone shot before? HUGE needles! And there isn't really anything to do with a fracture in the same spot, either. We're just going to wait it out, take pain meds, and go back to see him if it gets worse. It really does feel better each day, so I'm not worried so much. Just have to take it easy...
