Even though the most common causes for chills are exposure to colds or colds, there are also situations when chills are caused by autoimmune diseases or even cancer or AIDS, which weakens the immune system.
"In most cases, chills are caused by exposure to cold, viral and bacterial infections (influenza, colds, pneumonia, gastroenteritis, meningitis, infectious mononucleosis, streptococcal infections, urinary tract infections, septicemia, malaria, tuberculosis), menopause reactions to medications (antibiotics, seizure medications), autoimmune diseases (systemic lupus erythematosus), stress, malnutrition, hypothyroidism, diabetes, low immune system in patients with AIDS or cancer, ”explained Dr. Iuliana Avădanei, MD general medicine with skills in homeopathy, for Rador.

What happens to the orgasm during the chills
The body temperature is kept constant due to the balance between thermogenesis and thermolysis. Maintaining the balance is ensured by the functioning of the thermoregulatory centers, located in the hypothalamus. In the production of heat – thermogenesis – the biochemical processes intervene, the heat being the result of the oxidation processes in the body, especially through the muscular and glandular activity. In the heat loss – the thermolysis – physical mechanisms intervene, the heat being lost through the skin, lungs, kidneys. During the chill, combustion and thermogenesis increase. To these associated phenomena are added skin vasoconstriction and pallor through which the body opposes the great loss of heat.
