I shivered uncontrollably right after labor/delivery (...many years ago, but I remember!) and also after major surgery and when I had a bad flu. BUT also when I was sweaty & cold from exertion in snowy weather.

Very interesting. I knew about most but learned more as to why wr shiver. I never knew it was warmth generated by a rapid tighten & loosening of muscles. Thank you.
