Sore Throat and Hypothyroidism

I was diagnosed 4 months ago with Hypothyroidism. I've been taking my Synthroid on a daily basis as directed. I just recently got a sore throat about 3 days ago. It just gets worse and worse. Today I'm very hoarse and I cough every 5 minutes. It's hard for me to swallow, especially when I'm eating food. Do you think my sore throat has anything to do with my thyroids acting up, or is it just a sore throat?
