Well, I know sclerosis can be scarring, but some sclerotic lesions in bone are described as cancerous or benign. Scarring of the joint makes sense in arthritis as usually there is a buildup of osteophytes (bone spurs) that rub against the cartilage. But there is no mention of that. More like almost a deformity with age or something. I guess I need to call the rheumy and see what he says. The Mayo Ortho place has been really bad about
getting back to me.
I don't know about
the downward part or the space. I didn't even know I had an acromion. That's a jeopardy question! Thanks for the support! Maybe someone with some ortho or radiology will post. Knowing me, it's probably an old age thingy, like we all get it, like bad knees and hips, because we are women.
Hopefully that is all it is.
