Can stress cause a Hashimoto's flare?

Hi I have Hashimoto's and I had what I thought was an episode of stress. I got quite annoyed and frustrated at something and within a few minutes the front of my neck (thyroid area) felt very uncomfortable and irritated. Just wondering if it could be a thyroid flare? Many thanks :)
