Any connections between Crohn's disease and thyroid nodules?

Not really sure. I was hyperthyroid back in 2002-2003, but they say mine was caused by a med I was on for atrial fibrillation. I took thyroid meds for about 18 months and haven't had problems since.

I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis and had a biopsy of a nodule done back in December.  Thyroid disease is also auto-immune, but there is no connection other than that, that I know of. 

Crohn's Disease, Acid Reflux/Gastritis, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Endometriosis, Arthritis, Depression/Anxiety.  Too many meds to list them all.  =)

I had one back when I was in college...about 8 yrs pre-crohn's. They removed it and half of my thyroid with it.
