Correlation Between Epilepsy And Thyroid Problems?

Correlation Between Epilepsy And Thyroid Problems?

Does anyone have any type of thyroid problems that they feel are contributing to their seizures. I feel that it is linked but the doctors say 'no' (unless you have thyroid cancer). I just had a thyroid tumor removed that was benign so I do not have cancer.
