Shivers

Does anyone else get the shivers I go through stages where I'm shivering and feel like I can't get warm . Thought it could be meds but only take it at night

    Is this just over a day or two or has it gone on longer?

    Shivers or rigors like that can be a sign of having an infection.

    Not sure what it is but always just associated it with loss of blood during surgery, pain, fatigue and the body getting back to normal.

    I do the same thing now except that I am hot sometime and freezing other times. It started after my TKR 8 weeks ago. I have been told that it should pass eventually. I am 61 years old and never had these issues when I went thru menopause. Wow!

    Hi Wendy, I experienced the same thing but only when I used too much energy and tried to do too much.  I was lying under a thick blanket in temperatures of 33 degrees Cecius!

    Are you on blood thinner by any chance? I was, and I was chilly most of the time, especially when icing.
