The answer is 1, 2, 4, 5
Rationales:
1. This is an elevated WBC, which is an indicator of infection or inflammation.
2. Temperature elevation is a result of the release of pyrogens associated with inflammation.
3. Inability to sleep may be an effect of inflammation but is not directly caused by inflammation.
4. Patients with systemic inflammation often report anorexia.
5. General malaise, or feeling unwell, often accompanies systemic inflammation.
