I’m a 25 years old women. for the last 3 days I’m having a migraine and consult with the doctor. the doctor prescribe me with the mefenamic acid as a pain killer. I ate the medicine after that. after 2 days, I’m having a mild headache and my vision got blurry (30% of blurriness). is that normal? because my body temperature is normal but i,m feeling lack of energy (like having a fever).
