goosebumps start from head and out my toes
I have been having really weird symptoms.  Lately I get goosebumps that start at the top of my head and travel down my body and out my feet.  The pattern will continuously repeat itself.  I am not cold when this happens so putting numerous blankets on me does not help.  I also get these weird sensation in my chest when I go to sleep.  My chest actually quivers and sometimes my entire body feels like it is shaking yet you can not see the shaking from the outside it is all internal.  Has anyone else experienced any of these symptoms

Just out of curiosity...have you started menopause yet?

These sound like typical symptoms of that.

I'm only in peri-menopause...and I get these.

However, it may be due to something else, so let's move on.
Your Chest symtoms may be coming from Myofascial Trigger Points.
Sometimes when your calcium/magnesium ratio is off, you can get twitching.
Heart palpitations can also give you that feeling.
Are you laying in a certain position when this happens?
If so, it could be a pinched nerve...if not it could be a "normal" albeit odd response, to your body going into "sleep mode".
Diabetes can cause "body jumps", so can menopause...there are so many possibilities.
Perhaps you could keep a journal...write down the time of day these symptoms occur, what activities ( if any ) you were doing, what you had to eat, etc. After a week or two, look back in your journal to see if you can find any connection.
Taking the journal to your doctor can help as well.

As far as menopause goes I had a complete hysterectomy last year and the chills and the heart thing did not start until this year.  Lately I have also been getting dizzy when I go to lay down.  I also so have some weird kind of arthritis called sernonegative Rheumatoid.  It does not show up in any of the blood work so I keep telling them I think it is something else.  It just seems like every few months new weird symptoms arise.  My Blood Glucose levels are always good.  I have never had one over 110.  I do know that my heart quivers happen more frequently or at least they are more severe when I lay on my left side.  The chill thing just happens when ever it feels like happening.  If this is all do to menopause I want my ovaries back. lol
