I am having sporadic chills and goosebumps on my right

Customer Question

I am having sporadic chills and goosebumps on my right thigh. Chills are all over. They are random and I don't see any other symptoms associated. It often causes me to have a small panic attack afterwards. I recently had my 3rd child and had an epidural with the delivery. I am wondering if this could be a result of the epidural or pregnancy. I had a lot of lower back and pelvic pain during the pregnancy.
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?
Customer: 6 months off and on...nothing makes it worse or better
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: nope
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.
