Not for wimps.
I'm unsure since they all seem to have the same symptoms, but my recent health issues could be related to MS, Graves disease, hyperthryoidism (previously hypo), or multiple food allergies, among other things. I'm curious about the autoimmune connection that I'm seeing in the allergy (particularly Celiac) community, people having autoimmune diseases like MS too.
And I got a response back!
There is a modest increased risk of other autoimmune diseases among MS patients (particularly thyroid, as in your case), but not as much as in other autoimmune diseases such as lupus or Type I diabetes.
Okay, it's kinda weak, but at least they tried.
