Well from my own experience, I can tell you that thyroid disease can bring on depression and anxiety that can trigger the shingles.
As for the lymes, I have heard many of the ADF tests don't work and it is hard to find a doc to do the unapproved test that shows the actual positive if you have the disease. CFS/Fibro mimic lymes and vise versa so it is so hard to say.
If the second part has been going on for years, you may want to consider your diet. Yes, I know but it is true.
Get back to whole foods, nothing artificial, not food dyes, especially red and yellow, no soda, drink water, reduce coffee and sugars/salts. WALK every day at least 10 min. NO Alcohol.
Other than that I don't know what to tell you. Best of luck
