I have been having a lot of night sweats and cold chills during the day. So strange for me....

See an ID doctor: There are multiple possible explanations for this and the people who are trained to be clinical detectives are the infectious diseases experts. This sounds as if you are having persistent fevers. You chill when the body's thermostat turns up. This generates heat & you have fever. The body temperature is reduced when you sweat, as one of the mechanisms for losing heat. See an id doctor. ...Read more

I've been really hot and get cold chills what's wrong with me? I'm usually verry cold. All my life I've needed jacets on. But the past week or so I've been really hot and get random coldchills. It's to the point I barely need a jacket outside. Help please

Chills: Chills can be a sign of infection, especially if you have fever as well. Do you have any other signs of infection (sore throat, ear pain, burning with urination, rashes etc.?). If your chills don't go away you should visit your doctor for a medical exam and treatment as deemed necessary.
Best of luck. ...Read more

I keep randomly getting goosebumps/chills on my right leg and a little bit of tingling on my right arm only. When I'm not cold. Should I be concerned?

Not really.: Probably due to hyperventilation from anxiety or stress type things. But have your thyroid gland, blood sugar and blood chemistry checked to make sure nothing wrong in there.

If woman facing body aching, feeling cold & weak, moody after her period. She washed hair during period & didn't dry well and had cold, any serious prob?

Not related: Washing or not washing hair, and drying or not drying hair, does not cause the body aches and other mentioned symptoms. However, if wet hair makes a woman not sleep well, or if it makes her sleep in a strange head/neck position, she could be tired and moody by morning. If bothersome symptoms persist, a primary care doctor can evaluate to see if there is a problem. ...Read more

Feeling cold for yrs, fainting during periods for yrs but sex hormone levels normal, lethargy often, constipation, high cholesterol- worth doing TSH?

Feeling cold for yrs, fainting during periods for yrs but sex hormone levels normal, lethargy often, constipation, high cholesterol- worth doing TSH?

YES!!!: Plus CBC (blood count). Not sure why sex hormones (which ones) checked before CBC & TSH. Anemia (low blood count) could cause cold feeling, feeling faint & lethargy. Anemia often results from frequent heavy periods in young women. Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) can also cause feeling cold, lethargy, constipation & high cholesterol so definitely check both labs. Consider ambulatory blood pres ...Read more

What are the causes for chills and sweats during the day and night?

Fever: Chills are the body's way of generating an increased temperature under the influence of the hypothalamus responding to fever inducing stimuli. Sweats are one way for the body to relieve elevated temps. You sound as if you are running daily fevers. See an infectious diseases expert if possible, or start with your primary care doctor. Good luck, and do not ignore this. ...Read more

Mold exposure?: First I would recommend getting blood work done and an EKG and possibly an echocardiogram. If all that comes back normal, I would then ask you if it's possible that you are being exposed to mold at home, school or work. With toxic mold exposure, you can have the symptoms you described here and all your blood work would be normal. I can talk with you further about this with a consult if you wish ...Read more

What's the difference between the chills and just being cold? Because idk which one I'm feeling.

Fever: "Chills" refers to shivering in an adequately warm environment. This occurs when the body is developing a fever and trying to raise its temperature rapidly. Feeling cold is the skin temperature feeling uncomfortably cold due to a colder than comfortable environment. This also could be a mild fever, but is less likely to indicate fever. Check temperature to differentiate. ...Read more

What does it mean when a person gets chills and goosebumps when not cold?

Flight or Fight: As you've indicated "goose bumps" occur in response to cold as your body's way of generating heat. But this reaction (piloerection) also occurs in response to strong emotion. Fear for ex. Stimulates the sympathetic nervous system which causes the smooth muscle at the base of hair follicles to contract resulting in "goose bumps". Rarely, goose bumps are associated with medical disorders. ...Read more

How long do yohimbe cold chills last?

Probably not long: It is hard to find reliable information on this. If you get chills it's an indication that you have taken a dangerously high dose & I would caution against taking high doses again. The best info I found show that the "half-life" is about an hour but this is for the yohimbine component & the chills are caused by other alkaloids with unknown half lives-but I expect it would last a few hours at most. ...Read more
