Signs Your Body Contains Too Much Inflammation
Many people think the word inflammation is used merely to describe what happens following some type of physical injury. That said, others might not realize that the condition might indicate the presence of notable health concerns. When the body contains excessive inflammation, it often presents in numerous unique ways.
There are two specific types of inflammation, acute and chronic
Acute inflammation is a natural body response. For example, if you sprain a specific physical component, the area swells. This is the body's way of acknowledging the problem and commencing the healing process. Acute cases typically ease as the injury improves.
The chronic variety is a bit more concerning. This occurrence happens far more frequently and can result in potentially significant damage inside the body leading to any number of systemic illnesses.
Nine Causes of Chronic Inflammation
Numerous issues contribute to chronic inflammation, such as your genetic makeup, sleeping habits, the foods, beverages, and medications you ingest, and the environment you work and live in. The following nine symptoms might suggest excessive inflammation has taken hold inside your body and may warrant a professional medical evaluation.
Unexplained Aches And Pains
Discomfort not connected to a specific injury or diagnosed health problem could be caused by chronic inflammation. Said condition often precipitates painful physical maladies like arthritis.
Chronic inflammation often exercises a negative influence on your digestive tract. Ergo, continual incidents of diarrhea, gas, bloating, and cramping might indicate the presence of inflammation-centered ailments like food allergies and inflammatory bowel disease.
If you are routinely tired, inflammation might be the culprit. Oftentimes, a lack of sleep increases systemic inflammation. Over time, insomnia-induced inflammation can weaken your immune system rendering you susceptible to various opportunistic infections and illnesses.
Inflamed nasal cavities are often a surefire sign inflammation has taken hold. In a solid percentage of incidents, this manifestation is indicative of some upper respiratory problem such as the common cold or a nasal allergy. However, in other cases, a stuffed nose suggests that the body is dealing with some other appreciable inflammation-causing problem.
Another major sign that the body is seriously inflamed is skin trouble. Occurrences, including acne, rashes, and dry skin might suggest the presence of some underlying internal concern.
The onset of migraine-related and non-migraine headaches could result from excessive systemic inflammation. Additionally, headaches could be precipitated by inflammation-causing chemicals found in substances like alcohol, tobacco, and heavily processed foods and beverages.
Heartburn occurs when acid escapes your stomach and travels into your esophagus. Researchers maintain that increased bodily inflammation often heightens acid production in the stomach and increases your risk of developing heartburn.
Swollen Lymph Nodes
Lymph nodes are part of the body's lymphatic system, which aids the immune system in protecting the body from foreign invaders. When these collections of tissue, which are found in locations, such as your armpits, neck, and groin, swell, it often means the body is dealing with some type of inflammation-causing event like an infection. However, in severe instances, said events might indicate the presence of serious illnesses like cancer.
Scientists suggest that chronic inflammation could exercise a negative influence over your ability to execute important cognitive functions like focus and memory. That said, this problem often abates when chronic inflammation is treated.
