Hello Yusuf ...
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com, I try to help answer yes ...
Shivering in the body can usually be accompanied by fever or no fever, when a person experiences shivering conditions this means the muscles are experiencing repeated contractions to increase body temperature, or can also be a sign of an infection such as flu, meningitis or inflammation of the lining of the brain, pneumonia, disorders due to viral or bacterial gastroenteritis, malaria, urinary tract infections and strep throat, chills can also be caused by low or high body temperature, when anxiety and excessive fear of something, low blood sugar, or low levels of thyroid hormone in the blood.
To diagnose the causes of chills that occur apart from anamnesa and physical examination, in certain conditions if needed the doctor will conduct a supporting examination such as taking blood and urine samples, sputum examination and chest X-ray. To overcome the chills that you feel you can do some things like:
- Consumption of fever-lowering drugs: if shivering is accompanied by fever (body temperature is above 38 degrees Celsius) take a fever-lowering drug such as paracetamol as prescribed in the packaging or according to doctor's instructions
- Much rest
- Increase body immunity: how to increase body immunity in addition to consuming vitamins also by eating nutritious foods, sufficient water needs so as not to dehydrate
- Use warm water when washing the body: try not to take a shower in the day or over 6 pm.
If the complaint does not improve, or the chills caused by bacteria, then the use of antibiotics is needed to reduce the complaints of chills caused by bacteria. If the complaint does not go away accompanied by weakness until unable to do the activities, blurred vision, there is a history of seizures. You should immediately see a doctor.
In situations where the corona virus is spreading rapidly, if not accompanied by needs and urgency you should stay at home, or take care of yourself so that you are not exposed to the virus, if there are complaints such as sore throat that gets worse for more than 2 weeks, accompanied by fever more than 38 degrees Celsius, coughs, colds that do not heal until there is a feeling of tightness or difficulty breathing, even though you have tried to take medication, then you should check yourself to the doctor, for further examination.
Thus my answer, hopefully it helps
