Woke up feeling achy? Here’s why
Morning soreness or rigid limbs happen because the body’s natural painkillers haven’t kicked in yet. According to new research, while you’re sleeping, the body’s biological clock subdues anti-inflammatory proteins using a protein called cryptochrome. This delays symptoms until you wake up, making you feel worse once you have to get up and move around. Scientists believe that understanding the findings of this research could aid in the creation of more effective arthritis medication.
