born without a Thyroid and have swollen throat

I just got a cold 3 days ago. Mostly coughing, no voice, and a little stuffy nose. Not too big of a deal. But This morning, I notice my throat looks puffy and swollen. My grandma said it looked swollen a few months ago, along with a few other family members. I even got an ultra sound down to check and it came back fine. This morning is the first I noticed it. The weird thing is that I was born without a Thyroid gland. It's probably my cough but it doesn't look good at all. I'm going to my family doctors after I get off. I feel horrible. And I'm always sleepy and restless. That could be from work but its constant.

Any suggestions?
