newly diagnosed with hypothyroid

Help! I've been diagnosed this past week with low thyroid problem, as shown by bloodwork(tsh 2.412; t4 10.9 and t3 21) and I've been taking armour thyroid for five days.

my question is about the fever and aches I've had which originally led me to go to the doctor and get my blood tested. About two weeks ago I started having a slight fever, aches, and extreme fatigue. I went to the doctor, bloodwork showed the above thyroid symptoms but it also showed i have a virus.

So the question - is this virus related to the thyroid issue or completely separate?

Thank you for any input!
