My husband had un controllable chills last night, but no fever and he wasn't cold to the touch. He couldn't stop whole body from shaking. ?

Chills: These are often related to the differential temperatures between the individual and the ambient atmosphere temp.

For five days I have gotten hives in the evening followed by chills, shaking then sweating.  I do not have a fever.  ?

See Doctor: Hmmm. That is an unusual combination. The chills/shakes/sweats suggest an infectious process, even w/o noticeable fever, but the hives suggest an allergic reaction. It is possible you are mis-identifying the "hives, " and should be examined to see what is going on. ...Read more
