It started before day this morning. I've had a full hysterectomy (salpingo oophorectomy) and ther is no chest pain just a little pressure but only when I'm lying flat.

Thanks for the info given.

Chills & sweating together come from the body's response to stress, called a fight or flight response.Fear is one of the most common yet prominent causes of cold sweats. Anxiety, stress,low blood pressure , low blood sugar level.A decrease of blood sugar level or the blood pressure level can be a probable cause.

There is also a possibility of angina.It occurs when heart is not getting enough blood and oxygen.It is most often caused by blockages in the arteries that supply blood to your heart.Angina may feel like pressure or squeezing in your chest.Stable angina isn't a heart attack, but it makes a heart attack more likely in the future. Another important & common cause is imbalance of hormone.

So I advice you to go to ER for tests like blood tests & EKG,stress test to rule out any heart disease & other issues.
