And what exactly do you think happens to pain when inflammations/swellings get reduced?

Exactly, brufen has anti inflamatory properties, quite often used in arthritis patients as anti inflamatory which in turn reduces pain as their is less inflamation.

There are far better pain killers than brufen, brufen is used to remove the source of the pain, without it the pain remains as the underlying cause has not been resolved.

Aaaand it's suddenly 1954 on this thread...

Ibuprofen is an NSAID pain-killing anti-inflammatory (yes, I'm aware of the tautology in that statement) particularly useful for muscular pain. It is sold as a pain killer.


And for information, UK pharmacists.... either the ones in a supermarket or high street ... will happily sell multiple packets of both ibuprofen and paracetamol if you explain you live abroad and are stocking up. You may have a ten minute chat about the amazing prices of Swiss stuff, you may not. I very easily bought 3 packs of 84 400mg ibuprofen tablets and 500 mg paracetamol, with the caveat that I couldn't do the same via the check out because of the inbuilt warnings/checks.

It does that but it also reduces straight pain (not caused by inflammation) and reduces fever pretty fast too but the anti-inflammatory affects take a bit longer.

There is so much ignorant nonsense in your posts, it's laughable—if only there weren't the risk that people might read your tosh and believe it.

Aspirin is an anti-inflammatory drug (an NSAID), and also an antiplatelet—so by your reckoning it's not a painkiller, right? I don't think you understand much about pain pathways.

This is the best bit. Try reading it back to yourself and explaining how removing the source of pain doesn't resolve the cause...

Sure thing, if it's not obvious. "One of those" needing painkillers during "the periods". Good grief. I don't even think you meant it in a tongue in cheek manner. It sounded derogatory and patronising and as someone who has "the periods" I found your comment insulting and antideluvian. But, you know, whatever. Carry on. Have yourself a lovely afternoon.

And if you think that's an incredible amount of nonsense... oh boy...

HTH.

Oh ffs, go nag someone else with your rubbish shit talk.

To me it means exactly what it says, no more no less, no tongue in cheek, not insulting, not antideluvian, not patronising and not derogatory, and instead of asking how i ment it, you just put me down as some old-fashioned unfriendly guy who looks down on woman, and all of this while seeing yourself as the open minded person you think you are....

Really ffs...

I'm looking forward to being antideluvian but I think we discussed that already in the menop. thread.

Being the old fashioned woman hating asshole I am in your eyes, I read your posting half and based it on your username and Rufus is in large majority a name given to boys.

And if you will excuse my now, then I will show my wife how much I hate her kind while longing for the old days, by picking up the baby to welcome her at the busstop, so we can shop together so she does not have to carry up the grocery's uphill in this heat after she already had a long day. Damn, such hatred.. but you will probably explain this as that i feel like woman can't carry such on their own. I pity your husband.

Oh btw, it's me cooking today

How on earth do you know how I view you? I have no opinion of you either way as I do not know you, just as you don't know me. You asked me to explain my comment about your comment and I did so. I didnt like how you phrased something. You really didn't like how I phrased something... And now we're stuck in some bizarre meta loop.

Had you not become insulting, I would have left it there. I appear to have, inadvertantly, touched a nerve. However, kindly refrain from putting words in my mouth. I have enough of my own.

I'm very happy you have a lovely home life. So do I.

I never insulted your family, do not bring mine into it either. Low and cheap.

And I know. It's why I chose it.
