Hashimoto's and Shingles

I asked my endo if having Hashimoto's makes me get shingles off and on and she said no they aren't related but everything I have read says they are related. I had my first shingles in my 30's and it never reappeared until lately and I am 56. Never as bad as the first time but never less very bothersome to me. I get spots on my buttocks (sorry) and the side of my leg. Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Is there anything I can do about it? My sister is freaking out because she has Hashimoto's and shingles just like me and she read that if that happens it's signs of a stroke coming! Yikes.
