Why not ask on the Thyroid Board?
I have in the past read messages there that some people are allergic or very sensitive to the meds.
Have you tried Armour made with beef thyroid?
That is, if you are sensitive to pork thyroid.
Miscarriages are a common symptom of thyroid imbalance, probably due to the fact that thyroid balances the other hormones that control pregnancy.
GYN's have no specialty in the matters of hormones. They just dish out what is written in the pharmacuetical book and surgeries. Not to knock that, but you need to get a second opinion from another endocrinologist, outside your medical group.
You might also get another opinion from an internal medicine specialist, and try to get them all to discuss your case and see what they can come up with to help you, if possible.
Also, see about.com and search thyroid for another forum, which has many articles archived, and another message board to ask on.
Blessings in finding your answers!
