Can your brain inflame from regular anger outbursts

When I was ages 13/14-20/21 I had regular rage tantrums and now I’m 25 and don’t have them anymore but I think my brain got inflammation from them. Is that possible?

I think anger can increase blood pressure.

It sure feels that way.

I’m nearly 63, and all my life my anger binges have left me feeling drained and unhappy.

Definite maybe:

I’ve learned that inflammation can be caused by a poor diet that “starves” the trillions of good bacteria in the gut, and they release chemicals that inflame the body, so I would think that all of the hormones that are released when we’re angry could do the same to the brain. It makes sense to me, but I’m not a doctor.
