[Submitted] Crohns and Ehlers Danlos

Is there any known or suspected link between Crohns and Ehlers Danlos syndrome?

I have ehlers-danlos type III (hypermobility) and am currently being investigated for Crohns after a long history of IBS-type symptoms, which have recently developed.

Also, my rheumatologist did blood tests and found I had a slightly high blood marker for an ANA (antinucleic antibody) associated with connective tissue disorders (arthritis?) - is there any relevant link?
