Chills / shivering can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'minor' to 'critical'. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.
Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose chills / shivering, we could:
|Lyme Disease||5%||Ruled out|
|Epstein-Barr Virus||3%||Ruled out|
|Valley Fever (Coccidioidomycosis)||2%||Ruled out|
|Chronic Fatigue-Fibromyalgia||2%||Ruled out|
Do you sometimes experience 'chills' (sensations of cold accompanied by shivering) that can not be explained by your environment?
Possible responses:→ Don't know
→ Often - more than once a month
→ I am experiencing chills due to a current illness
Symptoms include body temperature disturbances and cold shivers.
