Detailed Answer:

Welcome and thanks for your query.
I understand your concern.
Please check his temperature with a clinical thermometer when he is experiencing the chills. If it is high, he needs to be investigated for an infection.
If the temperature is normal, it is possible that he is having a panic attack and he should be reassured. If he has a fast heart rate and trembling, it would suggest a heightened sympathetic nervous system activity and can be reduced with a small dose of 10mg of Inderal twice a day if he does not have any other medical problem or asthma.
Do get back to me if you have further queries.
