Changes during illness

  • In order to avoid additional infections or injuries that would increase the immune system's energy requirements, your body increases sensitivity to nausea and pain.
  • Sensitivity to cold motivates you to find warm clothing and heat sources that reduce the costs of keeping your body temperature up.
  • Changes in your appetite and food preferences push you to eat in a way that supports your body.
  • Feeling miserable provides a signal to your family that you need help.
