Brief Answer:
CT scan of the chest and abdomen and a blood culture sensitivity test.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

After hearing your history, I would advise you to do CT scan of chest and abdomen. Since you have chills and sweat also, you need to do a blood culture sensitivity test.

If any bacteria is found in the blood then it has to be treated with sensitive antibiotics.

Hope I have answered your query.
