I was diagnosed 38 yrs ago after the birth of my first son. I started taking Synthyroid but always had problems taking them; they made me feel like I had taken an overdose and I would have to take an Aspirin etc. to offset the feeling. The medication always affected my thought process and it has never changed over the years. I was seeing a specialist but he never believed me - it came to the point that 'i believe' the medication stopped working(to a point) because I started bleeding from the mouth, the breast, the rectum and the Vagina. It was at this point that I was put on Cytomel but I am still bleeding from the Vagina and the mouth. My Dr. either doesn't believe me or doesn't know what to do. I'm at the point where I just don't know who to turn to or what to do. I went to Emergency when I was passing all the blood but they told me it was an issue with my Dr. only he's not helping. I am on the Cytomel for about 6 wks, taking them when I get up - at first they were OK but when they got into my system I'm finding that I am very sleepy and tired all day so I take them going to bed - still very tired and confessed but not as sleepy. The Eltroxin did the same thing and so did the Synthyroid. My last TSH was 199: 2 months ago
