My husband is 93 and suddenly today began shaking with

My husband is 93 and suddenly today began shaking with chills very violently. He is covered with two blankets now, and tried walking around to raise his body heat first. No fever I believe. He sat at the computer all afternoon without moving much. If his shaking doesn't quit soon should I take him to ER?

My husband last night had a sudden onset of uncontrolable full body shaking. He wasn t cold , no fever , normal vision , heart felt fine, his hand and arms were all over the place and legs bouncing up and down. Lasted about 5 min. then had a short quiet spell. Started up again not as long or as severe then quiet for maybe 30 min and had another lesser episode than the 2nd time. He was alert during them, normal speech and said he didn t feel fatiqued afterwards as well. Any thoughts? Kind of unsettling. Thank you, Dorothy

Hi, last night my husband (42 and in good health) woke up in the middle of the night shivering intensely and was freezing. He said his stomach was ok, but he had a headache yesterday afternoon and through the evening. We turned up the heat and after layering a lot of blankets on he managed to warm up but he was shaking very intensely and it was very unusual. Any ideas as to what caused this? This morning he feels lethargic and sore.
