auto-immune diseases cause chronic inflammation, longterm–not good for us inflammation. Then there is the good inflammation response, when the inflammation is part of the healing process. most likely those of us with auto immune disorders are dealing with the chronic inflammation. Have you tried anti-inflammatories. I have found when my knee or back is bothering, taking just the average advil dose (2 tabs) throughout the day, even if the pain isnt there, take it reguraly for a day or 2 to keep the inflammation away helps the healing process.
I dont really know if we ever find out exactly what causes the inflammation, it’s the immune systems response to i guess whatever it encounters??? good question, I will have to check back here and see if someone who has more knowledge on it posts.
