Understanding Neuroinflammation

When the inflammation becomes chronic, it is when it gets harmful and can trigger various symptoms to appear, including fatigue and pain. The inflammation that takes place in the brain is what is known as the neuroinflammation. This is a topic that medical researchers have been trying to study for years.

The symptoms of neuroinflammation will vary depending on where the neuroinflammation it is taking place. Fatigue, pain, and depression, are some of the symptoms of fibromyalgia, which are believed to be caused by neuroinflammation.

However, the main symptom of neuroinflammation is neurodegeneration. Some of the conditions that were associated with this condition are:

  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
  • Huntington’s Disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Schizophrenia

Although inflammation of the brain is a common occurrence in head injuries, it has been found that neuroinflammation is a chronic state and not a response to injuries.
