I am shivering a lot in this winter, is it normal?
Hello, I am shivering a lot in this winter, is it normal? Do I need to see a doctor? Our body regulates its responses to heat, cold, stress, infection, and other conditions without any conscious thought. We sweat to cool the body when we get overheated. And when I get cold, I shiver automatically, but excessively. Please leave your comments on this.
@rukmini-d The right treatment plan for your shivering and other symptoms will depend on their underlying cause. If your shivering is a response to chilly weather or wet skin, then drying off and covering up should be enough to halt the shivers. You may also need to set your home’s thermostat to a higher temperature if age or other conditions are making you more sensitive to the cold. Make a habit of bringing a sweater or jacket with you as you travel. A virus usually needs time to run its course. Often, the only treatment is rest. In some serious cases, anti-viral medications may be appropriate. If you have a fever, gently sponging your skin with lukewarm water can help cool down the body. Be careful not to put cold water on your skin, as it can cause you to shiver or make your shivering worse.
