Cold Sweats and Chills Without Fever?
I'm looking for some information about what could cause cold sweats and cold chills in the middle of the night without a fever being present. Has anyone ever had this happen to them before? What caused it? Were there other serious medical issues involved?
Any input would be helpful.

Could be hormonal, esp if you are post-partum. But best to check with doctor.

Could it be menopause? I don't know your age, but night sweats can start as early as your mid-thirties. Start paying attention to what time of the month they occur and see if the timing is related to your cycle. I wish you all the best.

Yoyu didnt mention your age, but sounds like perimenopausal night sweats to me. If you're 35 or older, welcome to the club. chills come from cooling down after the sweats. Got to get up, change your clothes than hunker down.
