Hello. Thank you for your post.

Chills (also known as rigors) are caused by your body's attempt to burn energy and increase your body temperature. This happens (usually) when your body is trying to fight off an infection of some sort, like the flu. A bad sunburn or sun sickness can cause – nausea, vomiting, (fever) chills, headache and a general feeling of being unwell.
