How can inflammation in the body be treated?

I had my thyroid removed due to thyroid cancer. Since then I have been fighting inflammation in every part of my body. I recently was diagnosed with a heel spur and was prescribed prednisone and I have not felt this good since my cancer. What does this mean and how can I safely stay feeling good?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Inflammation can be due to different sources such as infection, allergies, trauma, cancer, medication, excess weight gain, autoimmune diseases.

You can try to find the source of inflammation by blood tests and examination from your doctor. If the exact source is found, it can be treated.

I hope this helps.
