    Hello.
    I have all three: diagnosed with Hashi at around 25 yo, PCOS, at around 36/37 and started symptoms of ME around the same time 36/37...but only diagnosed in late 2019. I am 42 yo now.
    I have the feeling these illnesses/conditions can happen in clusters and I wonder...what is the connection?

    Welcome to the forum @Aquarian1 .
    The clustering of conditions does seem to be a " thing" in chronic illness- I hope that engaging here will help us all gain a better understanding.

    I hope that you find friendship, solace and stimulation in equal measure.

    Hi Aquarian1

    I also got the 2 for 1 deal in chronic illnesses multiple times.

    I often hear Hashi being associated with gyn issues..I have Hashi and endometriosis.

    I'm not familiar with PCOS though, is there
    anything to do about it? (Edit: As in treatment)

    Welcome, @Aquarian1! ME groups are clubs no-one wants to have to join, but hopefully you'll find yourself among friends here.

    As far as I know, doctors equally know nothing and just give you meds. Some people swear by diet changes, lifestyle changes and/or supplementation.
    The thing is-- illnesses manifest differently in everybody.
    In sum--zero.
