When you have the symptoms of a cold (nose runny or stuffy) is it normal to feel chilled?

In brief: Chills

Yes, you certainly can.
Most colds are actually viral infections. When your body is fighting an infection of any kind, your immune system revs into action and will oftentimes increase your body temperature...Sometimes to the level of a fever. When you have a fever, you often feel chilled. This is just one of the ways that your body is trying to fight that cold (upper respiratory infection).
