Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for his symptoms.
There can be a few causes for the symptoms.
This can be due to onset of an infection.
A number of infections can cause it.
This can be bacterial or viral infection of GI tract.
Another common cause is urinary infection where he can have shakes, chills, vomiting without any change in urine.
A collection of pus can cause these symptoms.
Please try to keep the room warm by room heater.

Please give water to drink.

He needs to have good hydration.
If you feel rise in temperature, Tylenol can be given
If the symptom continues, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
A few tests like urine, CBC can be taken.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
