Correlation between canker sores (on tongue) & Armour Thyroid

I have been diagnosed w/Hashimotis since I was 27 & admittedly noncompliant w/the medication prescribed due to the adverse side effects. I am now 41 & have had TSH levels over 19.5 for the past year & have developed a goiter which is being treated with Armour Thyroid in the hope that it will be correct without any other intervention. However I have developed canker sores on my tongue that present perpetually. Shingles presented in my left ear 1week after I started the medication & the ENT MD & my own deductive reasoning have concluded the auto immune dysfunction collectively is what precipitated the virus to erupt.  Is there anyone else with similar symptoms on Armor Thyroid or w/the same diagnosis. Also have insomnia, flu like symptoms, & a plethora of adverse side effects from either the thyroid issues or the pharmaceutical component, or both & am a loss for an explanation or solution. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

No connection that I have seen, but you could change to a levothyroxine product and see if that makes a difference.
