Question: Yes, my husband is experiencing chills to the point of covering up with a wool blanket. He has continuous headaches, dizziness, every joint hurts. And he is taking medicine to get rid of bronchitis. One doctor says he is dizzying from artho static hypertension but even this does not contribute to the other symptoms. He is very pale even for a Caucasian.
