Your body has an inflammatory response system to alert you to the possibility of needed intervention. Arthritis is a widespread form of inflammation among older adults, as is gout. In the case of other inflammation, your body raises the temperature of surrounding tissue to try and destroy foreign materials—the rise in temperature flags your immune system to heal the area and defend against bacteria and viruses.
