Does anyone know a reason for uncontrolable shivering?

Aside from being cold, of course. My little guy (15 months) has been waking up every 3 hours this evening shivering like crazy. It is warm in our house though and I have him in long pants, socks, and a sweatshirt. He had a fever yesterday, but when I first caught it, it was only 101 and went down from there when I started medicating it. If this keeps up into the morning we are calling the doctor. :o(

  • Take and give him a bath. If it is warm in the house take some of the cothes off him and just a diapper wrap him up in a blanket hold him the boddy heat will keep him warm and the just haven the blanket will let him not get to hot. You holding him will help you understand if it is b\c he is not sleeping good enough or if it is the cold call dr as well if does not change.

  • I bet he just needs more fluids and fuel try that I once had that problem and to sometimes has to do with the blood sugar level. Since he was recently sick that can easily happen. I will say a prayer for ya'll.
