Body ache, chills, shivering, no fever. Cause?

I have been experiencing body aches, chills, and shivering with no fever . What could be causing this? The body aches seem to last all day and escalate later in the day. The chills start in the evening. It feels like I have a fever with no temperature. Additionally my skin seems sensitive and painful to the touch - similar to when you have a fever as well.

Thanks for posting your query.
Do you have sore throat/ running nose/ diarrhea/ vomiting/ burning urination or cough?
You are most likely suffering from acute viral fever.
Presence of chills along with body ache suggests the diagnosis.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist and should go for thorough check up.
You should take analgesics along with muscle relaxants for relief of symptoms.
Specific treatment depends on the diagnosed disease.
Take care,

Hi Jrrsllr,
Thanks for writing yor query.

After reading your post, it seems that there is a possibility of Urinary Tract Infection (UTI).
You should get yourself investigated for :-
1. Urine examination (Routine/Microscopic and Culture/Senstivity)
2. Complete Blood Count (CBC)
3. Malaria Test

You can take paracetamol 500 mg for fever and mild bodyaches.
If the pain is severe, you can take pain killer like Ibuprofen one tablet twice a day after meals along with an antacid like Omeprazole 20 mg.
You should take any medicine after getting yourself examined medically and under medical supervision.
Drink lots of pure water.

I hope this is helpful to you.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum, Your symptoms are suggestive of a fever prodromal symptoms of a fever will be like this. The fever could be viral fever, pharyngitis, or malaria etc.Once the fever is established the body temperature rises and you will feel heat of the fever. Some times due to acute weakness of the patient or burning sensation in the stomach,or vomiting sensation the body may be cool, inspite of temperature.
It needs an extensive investigations for diagnosis of the type of fever. So i advise you to consult a physician for diagnosis and treatment.
Wishing for a quick recovery from the fever, and thanks for calling.
