Does anyone have both degenerated, and is this the norm?

Hi I'm new here!
About 7 years ago I was getting pain in my right hip, burning sensation , which led to having tests,scans etc to be told my fifth vertebrae was degenerating. 
In the past week I've had a similar burning.. and my skin is sore to touch around my stomach and back, I'd say at the top of my butt. Not much was ever mentioned after my diagnosis about the other fifth vertebrae would or would not go the same way .. 
Does anyone have both degenerated, ( and is this the norm? )
Many thanks
