associated with their period? I have endometriosis and polycystic ovarian syndrome and have experienced severe symptoms since I began menstruation at the age of 12. The pain is indescribable. To putt it plainly I feel so ill that I am afraid I am going to die because there are times that I am in such distress and there is simply nothing that will give me relief. I take birth control to regulate my period, and that has eased the pain some, but the overall feeling of "death" is still there. I am 29 and have multiple health probs. I don't know if it is a combination of these (fibromyalgia, tmj, major depression, neurocardiogenic syncope, and some type of inflammatory disease) or just the menstrual disorders, but I find that shortly before I begin my period I am extremely lethargic, fatigued, and can barely move. My head feels like it is floating and like there is a knive twisting in the back of my neck. I am so nauseas that I sometimes throw up. I already take Norco 10/325 (every 4 hours as needed), Pristiq 50 mg 1x daily, Klonopin 0.5 mg (up to 4 x daily), Baclofen 10 mg 3 x daily, and Phenergan 12.5 mg (as needed). I guess my question is whether or not it is safe to take 2 Norco at one time, when I am in this much distress. I am afraid of my medications interacting as they all have a CNS depressant warning and I wouldn't want to overdose. I wouldn't be so concerned if Norco was the only medication that I take, but because I also take the other meds I don't know if its safe to increase the Norco. But I can't emphasize enough the amount of distress I can be in (Saturday I was literally praying to God to protect me and for him not to let anything bad happen to me- I was so sick and in so much pain, felt like I was dying, and didn't know what exactly was wrong or what to do) I knew that my period was to start at any time and my tmj has gotten so bad that I may require some kind of surgery, plus I am being tested for some kind of inflammatory disease... with all this I was just really scared, because I didn't know what exactly was the cause of me feeling so sick (I threw up twice, and my head was splitting). I started my period and now that pain is more localized in my pelvic region, and unfortunately still in my face, head, and neck due to the tmj. I guess I am just looking for support- from anyone that has experienced anything like this- physical pain so severe along with fear and uncertainty. Has anyone had similar distress associated to menstrual disorders. Also could someone tell me what the maximum amount of hydrocodone is usually allowed (I know what the max of acetaminophen is) I just dont want to take too much hydrocodone. I know I have to factor in my other meds when considering taking an extra Norco. Any advice, suggestions, experiences, etc would be welcomed. I will be calling my doctor tomorrow to discuss this, but would like to hear from my support community in the mean time. Thanks in advance!!! Angie
