Customer Question

I have been getting cold chills at night when lying down to sleep. They do no occur every night. The chills are for the most part are in the upper bocy region, like my arms and between my shoulder blades and back. The chills are so intense I can put on two blankets and a sweartshirt and still just feel cold (everyone else at home is fine not cold). Sometimes the chills will last for hours sometimes a shorter period and sometimes will be so intense that my mouth will shiver and I will get a bad headache with it. Please help me to figure this out. This has been going on for over two years.
