Assalamualaikum w.b.t.

I wish, my pills are like these:

But it is not, sadly.

Mefenamic acid belongs to the class of medications called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs). It is used to relieve moderately severe pain, such as muscular aches and pains, menstrual cramps, headaches, and dental pain.

Mefenamic acid relieves pain and inflammation as long as it is being taken, however it does not correct the cause of the pain.

Diclofenac is used to treat pain, inflammatory disorders, and dysmenorrhea.


It is somewhat weird to meet the first doctor and he prescribed me with Mefenamic Acid and MacGel almost immediately. Then I went to IIUM Gombak and learnt that the second doctor also thought that my chest pain was caused by gastric.

So I am officially in medicine for this week.

I have to eat, and eat, and eat. Small portions but constantly.

The pain is still there but, anyway, if the diagnose is wrong, I'll be off to PPUM.
