Nodules related to Sore Throat?

Soon after my last 6 month ultrasound evaluation for thyroid nodules in Dec. 2008, I began experiencing a reoccurring sore throat after talking at social functions. I have had persistent sore throat from post nasal drip in the past. I have also been noticing recent mouth dryness when awaking. However, this reoccurring sore throat is lasting longer and now seems to be most noticable after talking. Is this a likely symptom of compression from the nodule/s or from increased mouth and throat dryness?

this is not likely from the nodules

most common causes would be sinus problems or heartburn/reflux.
