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.?

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. Need more info for more advice. Read more

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

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: 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

My normal oral temp is 35.8 to36.5celcius. If my ear temp is 37do I have a fever. Have shaking chills too.

If you are having: "shaking chills" then there's a good possibility you may have a fever. see your doctor soon. If the oral or tympanic temperature is felt to be inaccurate then often times a rectal temperature will be checked. Read more

For five days I have gotten hives in the evening followed by chills, shaking then sweating. I do not have a fever.?

See Doctor: Hmmm. That is an unusual combination. The chills/shakes/sweats suggest an infectious process, even w/o noticeable fever, but the hives suggest an allergic reaction. It is possible you are mis-identifying the "hives, " and should be examined to see what is going on. Read more

High fever, chills and shaking for 4 days. I also was having painful urination before the fever off and on for a long time. What do I have?

Seek care now.: You're describing symptoms that go along with a bladder infection (UTI) or even pyelonephritis, which is when the infection ascends to the kidneys. Don't ignore high fevers and chills; get off the computer now and see a doctor right away. Consider going to the er depending on how you feel. Read more

Bad bladder infect. (Bactrim) headache excruciating pain lightheaded fever chills/shaking no appetite Tylenol (acetaminophen) hurts ulcers no energy. Nauseabed 2 days?

Bad bladder infect. (Bactrim) headache excruciating pain lightheaded fever chills/shaking no appetite Tylenol (acetaminophen) hurts ulcers no energy. Nauseabed 2 days?

Be careful: If you aren't feeling better soon after taking the bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) seek a re-evaluation. It's possible that the urinary tract infection is caused by a bacteria resistant to Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) or worse that the bacteria has gotten into your blood stream. Again, have a low threshold to seek a re-evaluation, even if that means having to go to the ER. Read more

Fever for 7 days: Fever associated with chills and myalgia sounds like a flu. As long as she is getting better, that is good. If not she should be checked. All the best. Read more
