I have been feeling feverish every evening. I am bone tired (fairly stressful days) and by evening I have the shivers and aches.

Any ideas?

Me too. My dh thinks it is just exhaustion so I've not bothered to go see a doc about it so i'm interested to see what others suggest. Not sure if your sit. is like mine or not, but I haven't had more than a couple of hours of sleep together in about 4 years so I figure cumlative stress ...

Hope you get some rest from stress soon!

Personally I would suspect some virus. Boost your immune system.

Yeah, that (although replace Fibro with CFS for me).

But I think it may be due to the same thing you might be having problems with - not enough cortisol/adrenaline reserves anymore. The chills and shakes can happen if you run low (or your blood sugar is low - cortisol (I think?) is what gets the glucose out of stores in between eating). So, this all corresponds to the "exhaustion" theory. I find when I've over-taxed myself, I have to eat often (every 2 hours or less) to keep up my blood sugar, and rest as much as I can.

I can't pretend to understand what this means entirely myself, but my neighbour is an accupuncturist who treated me a bit and he said feeling tired and "cold" and drained all day and then hot in the evening is a sign of a serious yin deficiency - basically a serious energy imbalance which is best helped by taking herbal blood and energy building teas or pills, as well as some accupuncture. He said to eat warmer soups and foods, and practice yoga or some gentle strengthening. These are helping me.

He said yin deficiency is very common in mothers as we are up & at 'em so quickly after our babies are born and don't give ourselves (aren't given) time to re-build our blood and energies. also often forget to look after ourselves in general. I know chinese medicine uses a whole other language for understanding our bodies, but it is the only paradigm that has actually helped me get healthier in the past - I recommend seeing if it helps you.

best wishes and lots of rest to you!
