Is it possible for you to have chills without a fever?

Is it possible for you to have chills without a fever?

Chills, no fever: Certainly chills can occur without a fever, although it's not that common.

Usually when chills occur, we will pile on blankets or start shivering to make a temp come up. That doesn't always happen though. Good to pay attention to a patient's symptoms however. ...Read more

Are there medical conditions in which there are chills or rigor, but without fever?

Are there medical conditions in which there are chills or rigor, but without fever?

Not likely.: 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 with respect to its environment and so has chills. They happen, therefore, during a high fever. Rigor mortis is a condition after death where the limbs stiffen. ...Read more

Chills: These are often related to the differential temperatures between the individual and the ambient atmosphere temp. Sometimes the stimulus from the area of the brain (hypothalamus) that serves as the body thermostat creates chilling to increase the body temp by muscular activity and he may have developed fever later after the chills.
