    Are you on any medication. Sounds almost like an allergy. I know when I was on two brands of levothyroxine the acacia affected me which was in them.

    I agree with Gillian, the additives in thyroid meds are killers. 

    If  you have inflammation in your thyroid, it can cause a backup in the whole ear nose throat area, which could result in post nasal drip, that would cause a sore throat.
