    I do not know if there is a link but I have both (with both under control w/treatment).

    I also have both, but don't know anything about whether this is common. Thyroid was the first of my systems to crash, when I was 13.

    Lyme disease can attack the thyroid and cause MCAS so that is one possible link. I have MCAS but not hypothyroidism, although my mother has Hashimotos. My thyroid levels have been on the edge of suspect at times and I tried thyroid meds for subclinical hypothyroidism but the meds just made me ill.

    @ebethc have you looked into sulfite/phenol sensitivity?

    @liverock thanks! That really confirms my suspicion
