Having chills without fever. Splitting finger and toe nails. Are these related?

For about 2 months, I have been having chills without fever during the day. I am tired but I do work full time so I m not sure that is a symptom. I have also recently noticed that my fingernails and toenails are splitting and have become thin whereas I used to have strong, healthy nails. Do you have any thoughts about this?
