Just about any medical condition - or its treatment - can affect and be affected by sleep disorders.
Considering what you have described, I would think it advisable to have a sleep test done - it is a simple procedure and may show up an additional cause of your sleepiness. There is no law which says you can't have two independent medical conditions, and the mere fact that you have a thyroid problem does not exclude the possibility of a sleep disorder as well.
