Symptoms of a Weak Immune System
- by Stephen Touhey
Whether you’ve been feeling completely run-down or just haven’t been feeling your best, you might be experiencing the symptoms of a weak immune system.
Many of us only think about our immune systems when we start to feel a cold coming on, so you might be surprised to know that your immune system is hard at work for you every minute of every day. It’s the bodily system that goes to battle for us against all of the outside intruders we regularly come in contact with.
From the shower floor at the gym to the ATM to your kitchen sponge, we’re exposed to all kinds of fungi, parasites, and germs day to day. Luckily, a healthy immune system knows which cells are yours and which are there to cause harm. It can even learn about new germs it’s exposed to, so it can put up a better fight next time you come in contact with them.
When your immune system is weakened it isn’t able to put up its best fight and keep you healthy, which can lead to many health problems. Here are some signs of a weak immune system to watch out for, so you can stay on top of your well-being.
Symptoms of a weak immune system
Many people know to watch out for common signs of a weak immune system like
Fatigue and prolonged stress, but there may also be some signs that surprise you.
● Slow recovery after exercise - You may notice you’re getting weaker week to week doing the same movements or your heart rate might be too high. You also might notice your muscles hurt more than they should. It’s normal to be sore for a day or two, but your muscles shouldn’t hurt.
● Frequent fungal infections - You’ll want to look out for any recurring athlete’s foot, scaly patches on the skin, a thick white coating on the tongue and throat, jock itch, or yeast infections.
● Digestion issues & food sensitivities - For these you’ll want to look out for stomach upset or pain, unintentional weight changes, bloating, diarrhea, gas, nausea, and even skin conditions like eczema.
● Cold extremities - This one can be caused by a few medical conditions, but a weak immune system is one of them. When your blood vessels are inflamed, it’s hard for your body to keep your fingers, toes, ears, and nose warm.
● Recurring Sickness - For adults, frequencies to look out for are having pneumonia more than once in a year, taking antibiotics more than twice in a year, having frequent sinus infections, or having more than 4 ear infections in one year.
