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

I always feel freezing cold but never stop sweating. What can cause these chills?

Sweating will cool u: You may be stuck in a vicious cycle here - as sweating will cause you to feel chilled or cold. It may be that you have an autonomic problem with your sweating function. If that's true, it can be tough to treat. I would start with a neurologist and see if they can identify an autonomic nervous system problem. Depending on what they find, may determine your treatment course. Hope that helps. ...Read more
