Inflammatory diseases develop when your immune system attacks its own tissues, causing inflammation throughout your body. This, in turn, can cause pain, swelling, stiffness, and other unpleasant or painful symptoms.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an example of an inflammatory disease. This common medical problem affects your joint’s structure and functioning.
Some of the common symptoms associated with inflammatory diseases include:
When left untreated, your symptoms may be mild and barely noticeable or severe and debilitating. At the first sign of a problem, see your Relief Clinic provider for a medical evaluation.
Genetics and older age are common risk factors for developing an inflammatory disease, but environmental factors may play a role too. Adopting healthy habits could lessen your chance of having crippling symptoms associated with the disease.
To determine if you have an inflammatory condition and develop the most appropriate treatment, your specialist asks about your symptoms and medical history.
They check your pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs, complete a physical exam, and often order blood tests or other diagnostic tests to identify potentially serious issues. You may need an imaging procedure to help your specialist make a final diagnosis.
Relief Clinic offers medical marijuana as a treatment for inflammatory diseases. Your provider determines if you qualify for this treatment and, if so, helps you obtain a marijuana certificate.
Medical marijuana helps reduce pain and anxiety or depression associated with inflammatory conditions. You might also make lifestyle changes, undergo physical therapy, or try taking dietary supplements. In severe cases, you may need surgery.
Eat nutritious foods, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, don’t smoke or drink excessive amounts of alcohol, and keep your stress levels as low as possible.
