What is it called when you have chills you are shaking you vomit and you feel hot 1 minute then freezing the next?
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
Fever, blood infect:
Shaking chills mostly go with blood infection called sepsis and are associated with high fever and white blood cell count. Allergic reactions and certain drug reactions can also cause this.
Of course, it is possible to just get very cold while sick. Then the chills might have to do with that but don't take any chances. Sepsis can be life threatening, get checked out if you reach that state. ...Read more

My husband had un controllable chills last night, but no fever and he wasn't cold to the touch. He couldn't stop whole body from shaking.?

I had shaking chills last. Happened a couple of weeks ago too. I slept it off both times. No fever tho. Should I worry about infection?
3 drinks last night, no recollection of anything that happened (no, not rufied). Awful headache, sensitivity to light, shaking, vomiting, chills.??
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

It is possible for a stone to get stuck in the urethra, but this is very rare, especially in women, since it has already passed through the ureter. ...Read more
My husband has had cold chills, a high fever, shaking and numbness all over with a deep cough. Is there something he can take? He has had broccidis many times before
High fever and chills are worrisome for a serious infection (bacterial or viral). He could have bronchitis again or even pneumonia or the flu. The only way to be sure is to seek out medical care. It is possible that he may need antibiotics if he has a bacterial infection.
By the date of this post almost a week has passed, hopefully he has improved or has seen a doctor by now. If not, he should go right away.
Take care. ...Read more
