When your body encounters or is injured by an agent such as a virus, bacteria, or a toxin, it activates your immune system. Then various inflammations occur.
Inflammation is the process by which your body's white blood cells and the substances they make protect you from infection by outside invaders such as bacteria and viruses.
But in some diseases, such as arthritis, your body's defense system -- your immune system -- triggers inflammation when there are no invaders to fight. It is called autoimmune disease. In these autoimmune diseases, your immune system acts as if regular tissues are infected or in some way abnormal, causing damage.
Inflammation can be short-lived (acute) or long-lasting (chronic). Acute inflammation goes away within hours or days. Chronic inflammation can last months or years even after the initial trigger has gone. Conditions associated with chronic inflammation include cancer, heart disease, diabetes, asthma, Alzheimer's disease, arthritis, etc.
Some types of arthritis are caused by inflammation, such as:
Signs of inflammation: redness, a swollen joint that may be warm to the touch, joint pain, joint stiffness – that is, a joint that does not function as it should.
Inflammation can also cause flu-like symptoms, including Fever, chills, fatigue/loss of energy, headache, loss of appetite, and muscle stiffness.
