I have had cold upper body chills and down both legs off and on for over a year with no fever or common cold symptoms.I have had nerve conduction tests, blood circulation tests, MRIs, and brain scans. All tests came back negative. Have been taking a low dose of Armour Thyroid for Hypothyroidism. Was diagnosed with Peripheral Neuropathy by my neurologist but there is no pain associated with the chills; just an intense cold feeling. Apparently there is no known treatment for this. I have these chills regardless of the air temperature; both summer and winter. The coldness keeps me awake at night and it does not stop by turning up the thermostat or wearing more clothing. It subsides when I am working out or just being active by walking or doing any physical activity.
Does anyone have similar body chill issues? If so, has any treatment been successful?
