Not bad: A shower will not help cure your infection, but if it makes you feel better, by all means shower. It will not make you any worse. Read more
Thermostat Setting: Fever is when you body's thermostat is set higher than normal. When the thermostat in your house is raised, the heat goes on to increase the temperature. "Chills" is how your body generates heat - basically your muscles produce that extra heat. The "Cytokines" released by your body in response to any infection appear to regulate this thermostat. BTW "Fever Breaks" when you sweat to cool down. Read more
Chills, no fever: Certainly chills can occur without a fever, although it's not that common. I've seen this happen in my elderly folks especially - those who are 'weakened' or immunocompromised may have an abnormal immune response. 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

Need more info: This doesn't sound serious at first glance, but you need to see a doctor to decide if you have something more ominous based on recent history and a good physical exam. See your doctor or an urgent careMD to make sure if you are concerned, especially if your symptoms have not improved over a few days. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It's a mild fever: Think of being hot-cold-hot-cold (but without a high reading on the thermometer) as having a mild fever. When feeling hot, the body is wanting to cool off (the brain is telling you that you are hotter than the brain wants you to be). When feeling cold, the body is wanting to get warmer and maybe have a fever (the brain is telling you that it wants you to be hotter, maybe even feverishly hotter). Read more
