In brief: Uncomfortable

Jet lag is the mismatch between your internal biologic clock and the external world.
You will feel sleepy and have poor appetite for a day or so. Additionally your memory and analytical skills will be reduced until you have adapted. Exposure to sunlight, both morning and evening and using your body's natual sleep hormone-melatoinin prior to sleep you can hasten your adaptaion.

In brief: Vulnerable

Depending on how many time zones you travel, jet lag can make you vulnerable to fatigue related illnesses and make you more vulnerable to infections.
