Body Fever Until Chills?
I want to ask, right if we have a fever our body temperature is hot, but why do we also shiver. Though chills are the body’s response to cold temperatures. What is wrong with thermoregulation when you have a fever? Are there hormonal disorders or not?
Hello Hamnahatsa407, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
Shivering is a response carried out by the body by moving the muscles that exist throughout the body to help increase body temperature when the body's temperature regulation detects that the body is experiencing a lack of temperature. In general, it is true as you say, that chills are common when we experience cold, but when there is a fever, an increase in body temperature threshold occurs, so that during a fever the center of the body's temperature regulator will assume that the current body temperature is lower than the temperature threshold normal body so that it will cause the body to react by shivering to help increase body temperature.
Regarding your next question, during a fever, there really isn't any mistakes that occur and there is no change in any hormones that cause body temperature or body temperature threshold to increase. The emergence of a fever is generally closely related to the infection or inflammation that is happening in the body, where certain substances released by germs can stimulate the body's response to increase body temperature (fever). In addition, the fever itself is normally needed as one of the body's mechanisms to kill these germs that cause infection or inflammation in the body.

I hope this helps.
