Thank you for the query.

Your high blood pressure may not be the cause of heart burn and chills.

For high blood pressure the medicines have lowered it. Your doctor will review and may add some other medicine to bring it to normal.

Besides medicines have salt restricted diets, diet should be balanced and healthy.

The heart burn may be caused by indigestion or peptic ulcer associated problems with gastro esophageal reflux.

Avoid spicy foods and take easily digestible ones at regular intervals.

Medicines like pantoprazole once daily, domperidone tablets will be helpful.

Felling chills may be due to low basal metabolic rate and environmental factors.

Any infections like urinary infection to be ruled out.

Please get a clinical check up with physician and discuss your problems.

You need some investigations to reach diagnosis and your doctor can guide you after examining you.
Hope you be all right soon.
