I have been having a lot of night sweats and cold chills during the day. So strange for me....

See an ID doctor: There are multiple possible explanations for this and the people who are trained to be clinical detectives are the infectious diseases experts.

Annual flu shot can help. ...Read more

What are the causes for chills and sweats during the day and night?

Sweats are one way for the body to relieve elevated temps. You sound as if you are running daily fevers. See an infectious diseases expert if possible, or start with your primary care doctor.
