What causes chills?

Fever going up

Chills
One of the factors in producing an increase in body temperature is muscular activity. A long distance runner will generate very high body temperatures. One of the ways in which the body produces an elevation of temperature is by chilling, which is a form of muscular activity. The other factor is the differential between the body temperature and the external temperature.

What could cause chills?

Many things.

Chills_
Chills and rigor are synonyms and are seen due to the release and action of cytokines and prostaglandins as part of the immune response which also increase the body's set temperature in the hypothalamus. The person then feels cold in its environment and has chills. These are caused by influenza, tonsillitis, pneumonia, biliary sepsis, pyelonephritis, abscess, malaria, amphotericin B, and others.

Chills

Chills_
The major circumstances in which chills occur are as an accompaniment to fever and after exposure to a cold environment. They are one of the body's mechanism for increasing body temperature when the hypothalamic "thermostat" has been set higher. The muscle activity of chilling generates heat.

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

Is a shower good for chills?

Might help

Chills
Chilling is one mechanism the body uses to raise the core temperature an occurs prior to the temperature going up. Also occurs in response to the differential between your and the environment's temperatures. If you take a hot shower you diminish the differential and may help alleviate the chilling.
