I have constant shivering and cold hands, sometimes even in bed. What could be the cause please?

I have constant shivering and cold hands, sometimes even in bed and in warm weather. Then when I exercise I rapidly overheat and sweat. It varies in intensity but seems worse through the spring season. It seems my brain is getting the wrong signals about my body temperature . I m 59, I take regular exercise, I m not overweight , a non-smoker and drink little alcohol. My general health is good but i have treatment for raised blood pressure (diovan). I ve had tests for thyroid function that showed no problems. What could be the cause please?

What are your thyroid levels and when were they taken.
Fatigue is one of the ADRs of Valsartan, which you are experiencing as rapid rise of temperature and instant sweating which is quite expected.
