Tell me – has anyone ever had any pain alleviated by paracetamol? It’s got to be the most useless medication ever, with Norethisterone coming a pretty darned close second! ‘Take these tablets three times a day and they’ll stop you bleeding!’
Yeah? And when exactly is that likely to happen? This year? Sometime during the next decade? When I’m seventy-bloody-three?
And it’s not as if I have a low pain threshold, either! I’ve had migraines, neuralgia, sciatica. I’ve had two kids. I’m no stranger to pain; hell! I’ve even been married!
And paracetamol has never offered pain relief. It doesn’t touch headaches, or backache, or toothache. It’s useless for period pain, pulled-muscle-pain and I’ve-dropped-a-tin-of-corned-beef-on-my-fuckin’-foot-pain. And let me tell you, it does absolutely Sweet FA for Wire-Brush-Whizzed-Around-Your-Doodah-Pain!
It’s useless! Pathetic! Ridiculous! I may just as well start popping Smarties!
Has paracetamol ever cured your pain?
