Long -Term Impact of Inflammation
One of the most common long-term effects of inflammation is pain. It can cause pain in joints, muscles, and other areas due to the buildup of inflammatory cells in these areas. This can result in a decrease in mobility and range of motion, as well as an increase in fatigue and general discomfort. Furthermore, persistent inflammatory symptoms can lead to damage to organs such as the heart or lungs, which can ultimately lead to serious health conditions such as heart disease or COPD.
Another potential consequence is accelerated aging. It is known to cause cellular damage that leads to premature aging and wrinkles on the skin. This has also been linked to cognitive decline and neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Chronic inflammation can lead to psychological distress. Prolonged symptoms cause the release of hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline that can increase anxiety and stress levels, which in turn can lead to depression or other mental health issues.
