What's more, this inflammation might not be showing up as pain.
In fact, there are 4 NON-pain related signs that you probably didn't know were signs of inflammation!
That's why today, we'll go over the 4 subtle signs your body has inflammation...
And it includes signs like:
- What it means if your gums bleed while brushing your teeth
- Ever feel slow or sluggish, with poor concentration? That's brain fog. But did you know it can mean the inflammation is now affecting your brain?
- Finding it difficult to digest regular foods? Or do you have irregular bowel movements? We'll go over what this means in terms of inflammation in your body...
However, prolonged inflammation may cause severe pain and autoimmune illnesses like arthritis and lupus.
That is why you should learn the signs associated with hidden inflammation. If you're experiencing any of these signs of inflammation in your body, it could mean different things.
What is inflammation, and why does it cause pain?
Inflammation is part of the body’s defense mechanism. It’s a way for the body to protect itself from bacteria, burns, frostbite, sprains, or fractures.
If inflammation happens as it should, the body heals itself, and there are no long-term effects.
When your body is inflamed, there is a surge of white blood cells reaching your bloodstream to the afflicted tissues to protect you from invading pathogens.
The increased influx of fluids and white blood cells into the wounded tissue causes swelling. But this influx is not the reason you feel pain. Pain is associated with the secretion of chemicals and the clamping of nerves in the injured area.
The swelling is bound to disappear after a few hours or days, but it should not go for weeks or months without subsiding. When an inflammatory response goes on for a long time because of pain or disruption, it presents various signs.
These signs may include cardiovascular problems, back pain, extreme fatigue, gastrointestinal problems, or metabolic inequities.
Such prolonged inflammation poses a high risk to you.
There are two types of inflammation; acute and chronic.
Swelling, dilated blood vessels, pain, warmth, and redness are all symptoms of acute inflammatory responses. However, once the inflammatory cause has passed, the body settles down (1).
Blood-borne substances calm the storm, and the inflammation shrinks.
Chronic inflammation isn’t the same as acute inflammation, and it’s not the same as having a fever. Chronic inflammation is a sluggish, long-term inflammatory response that lasts several months to years.
The extent and impacts of chronic inflammation are determined mainly by the cause of the injury and the body’s capacity to regenerate and repair the damage.
Various things can cause chronic inflammation. They include autoimmune disorders such as lupus disease, untreated acute inflammation, and biohazard chemicals.
Certain lifestyle factors contribute to chronic pain, such as smoking, alcoholism, and obesity.
Chronic inflammation is associated with severe health problems like colitis, phlebitis, Alzheimer’s disease, cardiovascular issues, and organ failure.
The following are four signs of inflammation that may point to a real health problem.
Sign 1 - Persistent Bloating Or Digestion Problems? Here's What This Means...
We all get diarrhea or gassiness from time to time due to eating unhealthy or polluted food. However, persistent digestion issues may indicate long-term inflammation in the gut.
When your gut is irritated, you may experience bloating, diarrhea, and cramps. Such symptoms could be dietary intolerance, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s disease, or another gut illness.
However, it could also result from something else, so confirm through a medical examination.
Inform your doctor if you begin to experience these symptoms or suspect you have digestive problems. Finding out the cause of your gut issues might take time, but the effort is worthwhile, and it’s the start of sorting inflammation.
Sign 2 - Has The Inflammation Gotten To Your Brain?
Inflammation can also affect your body and your mind. Things like brain fog and the inability to think clearly can happen due to swelling. The symptoms can be mild or severe.
It could be something as simple as forgetting what you’re trying to say without even getting distracted. Or severe to the point that you get complete amnesia.
Symptoms like brain fog will often improve when you manage chronic inflammation. Trying to make a few simple changes to your lifestyle is an excellent way to start lowering inflammation in your body.
You can manage inflammation with food, the easiest and cheapest way to do it. But get a medical check-up to ascertain that the cause of the swelling is not fatal or life-threatening.
Besides brain fog, other signs of brain inflammation are headaches, colds, flu. And this inflammation could arise when pathogens like viruses, bacteria, or fungi invade the brain and the surrounding tissues.
Sign 3 - Do Your Gums Bleed When Brushing Your Teeth?
Red, swollen, tender, or bleeding gums could signify a bigger inflammation problem. Gingivitis, or gum inflammation caused by plaque buildup, is a common, mild, and easy condition to treat(2).
It can turn into periodontitis, a dangerous and aggressive gum infection if not treated.
Periodontitis causes tissue damage, bone destruction, and dental problems if it isn’t taken care of quickly.
The disease is associated with respiratory disease, rheumatoid arthritis, cognitive impairment, weight gain, and metabolic syndrome. The condition also increases the likelihood of heart attacks and strokes to more than two to three times.
The solution is to visit a dentist and get a full assessment of your bleeding gums before they become serious.
Sign 4 - Feel Like Your Pants Are Getting Tighter?
Belly fat may also be a sign of chronic inflammation, and it also worsens the effects of inflammation.
Research shows that fat cells in the abdomen secrete molecules that raise inflammation, which verifies a link between abdominal fat and systemic inflammation(3).
Too much belly fat increases the risk of many ailments. For example, a “pear-shaped” person is less likely to get heart disease and diabetes than a person who is “apple-shaped,” with fat stored in the hips and thighs.
Over a large amount of belly fat, the body has trouble with the body's insulin response. Change your diet to healthy, anti-inflammatory foods to lose weight and alleviate the effects of chronic inflammation.
Hopefully this shows you how important it is to focus on reducing inflammation!
