Blood flows downhill: While the fracture was in the metatarsal, fluids (including blood) can track along tissue planes in the foot and produce bruise-like discoloration at other, remote spots. Gravity likely guided fluid as it seeped from the fracture site towards your toes. If there is pain as well as discoloration in your toes, then it's best to alert your physician as there may be more than the orig fracture.

See your provider: Sores that leak clear fluid on your scalp or the back of your neck are not likely related to thyroid removal or Graves disease, and being examined by your healthcare provider rapidly is the most direct way to determine what IS the cause of these lesions.

Probably OK: The Mayo Clinic suggests that higher doses of SAMe can be used (http://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements/same/dosing/hrb-20059935), but each person is an individual; also, it is important not to be taking other agents that could precipitate serotonin syndrome at the same time.
