What could be the cause of purple bruise on the eyelid in one with Synthroid ?

I woke up this morning with a small purple bruise on my eyelid closest to my nose. The only change I have made is going on Synthroid about a week ago. Should I be worried?

Hi there,
Any history of trauma, blunt trauma could cause a bruise. To rule out blood disorders, any history of easy bruisability, gum bleeds, nose bleeds,multiple bruises on the body etc? It is quite unlikely that synthroid would have caused the bruise. Any history of allergy /itching etc with synthroid? Are you on any other medication (like warfarin or digoxin) which interacts with synthroid. If the answer to all your above questions is no, Don't worry. Hope this helps :)
