Along with a cough, those suffering from Legionnaires disease will also have a fever and chills as well. The fever from Legionnaires disease can climb upwards of 104 degrees Fahrenheit, making you feel like any room is too cold for your warm body. The body’s natural reaction to feeling so cold is to shiver or give you chills. Your body thinks you need to produce even more heat, so it makes your muscles go through minor contractions to produce some heat. Because of the severity of the fever, your body turns to last resorts, but it’s shorting out. At this point, a trip to the hospital is in order, if you haven’t gone in already. Fever and chills can become serious quickly.
