Do your chills and shaking subside after you get food or fluids (not water) into your body? Are you having morning low blood sugar incidents?

Hi..
Thanks for the query..

There ca be a number of causes for chills without fever like:
-Cystitis or infection of the bladder
-Medicine side effects.
-Malnutrition
-Anaemia or low haemoglobin
-Hypoglycemia or low glucose / blood sugar
-Hypothyroidism
-Lack of sleep
-Cold environment.
So to rule out the exact cause you need to get a clinical examination and proper investigations done..
Treatment can be done accordingly..

Hope this helps..

Regards..
