First lets look at what the thyroid does for you physically, with this excerpt from http://www.emedicinehealth.com/thyroid_problems/article_em.htm: "The thyroid gland is located on the front part of the neck below the thyroid cartilage (Adam’s apple). The gland produces thyroid hormones, which regulate body metabolism. Thyroid hormones are important in regulating body energy, the body’s use of other hormones and vitamins, and the growth and maturation of body tissues.
Diseases of the thyroid gland can result in either production of too much (overactive thyroid disease or hyperthyroidism), too little (underactive thyroid disease or hypothyroidism) thyroid hormone, thyroid nodules, and/or goiter. All types of thyroid problems in women are much more common than thyroid problems in men."
If you are curious about potential physical causes, here are a couple of articles that I found interesting, though I highly recommend talking with your doctor and doing some of your own research about this:

I find it fascinating that thyroid problems are more common in women than in men. If you are an intuitive woman or someone that believes you have some psychic abilities the following insights might be very helpful to you.
Here’s what Louise Hay offers about the metaphysical root of thyroid problems: "Humiliation. I never get to do what I want to do. When is it going to be my turn?”
Now here is what I heard when I became still and asked about the metaphysical function of the thyroid: "Thyroid is about honoring and acting upon your intuitive impulses. Are you willing to give voice to, and make choices based upon, your intuitive wisdom or what your psychic powers are telling you?"
Do you find yourself making choices based upon what you think you should do, rather than what that quiet little voice in the back of your mind is suggesting?
Are you stressed because you have cut off a part of yourself? Is it possible that you overindulge the machinations of your mind—you know, those endless loops where you try to figure out something that you can’t really figure out?
You don’t have to figure out love, compassion, understanding, or empathy in order to know what a difference these feelings can make in your life. You don’t have to figure them out to know they are important, but what about your intuition? Do you know how important following your intuitive wisdom is for your life and your health?
If you are not recognizing or following the intuitive wisdom coming from your psychic abilities, you are in effect, cutting off a part of yourself. You are not allowing yourself to do what you truly want to do, as Louise Hay suggests. You may not be allowing yourself to do what is truly in your highest good.
If you are experiencing thyroid dysfunction, you might want to take a look at your relationship to the intuition that flows from your psychic abilities. You might find it helpful to consider ways you could recognize, strengthen and act upon your intuitively guided insights.
A little honoring of your intuitive process just might help you create physical healing for your thyroid more easily. Keep in mind that not honoring your intuition can also show up in other areas of your body, but if you are having thyroid problems, you might want to explore your relationship to your psychic abilities
