    Colds become laryngitis, could it be thyroid related?

    I usually get 1-2 colds per year. In the last couple of years when I get a cold it develops into losing my voice for a few days to a week after the initial cold symptoms start to ease up. Could this possibly be related to having thyroid disease (Graves) ? Thoughts ? It's just weird that I never got laryngitis before with colds, until I developed thyroid problems. Hmmm....

    I know different people are affected in different ways with colds. My son for example always gets the "chesty" type of cold because he has asthma. My husband tends toward the "stuffy nose" type of cold because of his allergies and sinus troubles. My colds tend to now be all in the throat and voice!

    Re: Colds become laryngitis, could it be thyroid related?

    Since I have been sick with this (and I'm saying "sick" pertaining to when I think I started having real symptoms) since September and I haven't had a cold since last year. I had a runny nose and a little stuffed up during my hospital stay but nothing major.

    Since I was a small child, I would get laryngitis with every cold as well as severe tonsillitis. My tonsils never came out and I know they should have. I always have had at least one cold per season, and I've been quite lucky this year.

    I wonder if somewhere along the way I got Hashi's from such bad colds and infections I had as a just never know.

    I seem to catch colds easier when hypo and my allergies are worse too.

    I constantly had sore throats and a few mystery illnesses when I was a teenager, about the same time they told me my gland was enlarged. There was one point where my aunt was ready to take me to a specialist I was so sick with fever and swollen glands. No one ever did figure that one out. I was on antibiotics, like three different kinds to no avail. Ever since I have been medicated for my hashimoto's I haven't had any sore all.
    I definately think many of the problems I had were related to having an autoimmune disease.
