In brief: Could be infection

Hi HVance chills, a shaking feeling or really shaking with even teeth chattering can be due to an infection with virus or bacteria.
If you also have a measureable temperature, or any other suggestions of infection (for example urinary symptoms, an open wound) seek emergency medical attention. Really!! But it can also be a temporary reaction, for example to sun exposure. Take care!!
