Cardiologist 's  Response
Hi there,
Thanks for writing in.
I am a qualified and certified cardiologist.
I read your mail with diligence.
I can not find any cause of shaking with low grade fever and your husband's high blood pressure.
The shaking could be related to fever (aggravated chills) and fever can be because of any cause. If fever still persists or you live in or you had been to place where malaria is prevalent that would be one obvious cause to pursue. I will urge you to see your doctor should the fever and or shaking persists. Increased blood pressure on treatment does not produce these kind of symptoms. Good Luck.
With Best Wishes
