Chills, feeling cold, shaking, no fever, no other symptoms. Temperature was 97.3 last night but this morning up to 98.3, still cold feeling, what could it be? Have history of low vit k, could it be that again?

Anemia: Sometimes people with low blood counts (anemia) complain of feeling cold. Other possibilities could include hypothyroidism. Feeling cold with a normal temperature is somewhat of a vague symptom. You would benefit from a full medical history and symptom review as feeling cold as a single symptom does not truly distinguish what may be the underlying cause. Hope this helps! ...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.

3 drinks last night, no recollection of anything that happened (no, not rufied). Awful headache, sensitivity to light, shaking, vomiting, chills.??

Coincidence or...: While your symptoms today could be due to a bad hangover, 3 drinks aren't likely to cause this unless you're unusually sensitive or allergic to alcohol (or unless someone did somehow slip you some drug).
While this wouldn't explain why you can't remember everything, you might have a flu-like illness or food poisoning explaining how you feel today.
In either case, homeopathic Nux vomica 30c may help. ...Read more
