Weird rigors at night..

Dear PR

Last night I woke up because my body was shaking and I felt really nauseous and somehow intoxicated. My body was shaking for a few seconds every 30 seconds for about 45 minutes. I was feeling pretty cold and therefore I took a hot bath. I googled this phenomen today and i guess its called rigors. I was pretty anxious last night because I though this might be seizures..

Anyway, I wanted to ask you if this could be a good singn because I was not feeling sick for almost 2 years now and I think that my body is fighting against something right now (maybe a bacterial infect or a virus?). I am way more active recently because I accepted a full time job which is pretty hard to take and I feel like shit almost every day but maybe somehow my body got activated somehow and now fighting against something that may be causing my CFS - this would be to good to be true though.

The only thing which might have caused these rigors last night would be the selenium supplement (200ug) I took for the first time...

Maybe someone knows that feeling or would like to add anything else - I would feel a lot better if I would know that this is not something I have to worry about.

Thanks in advance!

I don't know why but lots of times when I take a mineral supplement I get very cold for a while afterward. I'm not sure if it has something to do with throwing off my electrolytes or bp or possibly the body's alkaline/acid balance.

I sometimes wear 5 layers of clothes through the day and sleep under at least 2 blankets and a thick comforter. One of the blankets is electric and I set that to high so I tend to run cold but like I said it is worse after I take a mineral.

Hope you get some answers.
