MOST LIKELY NO: No malignant hyperthermia is a very specific diagnosis as reaction to some agent that will be giving during general anesthesia and it is lethal without proper intervention now if your having high fever with some chills you need to take it seriously it could be a simple flue or virus but it could be something serious and life threatening go to the emergency room or see your doctor asap.
