Fevers occur when the hypothalamus, an area of the brain also know as the thermostat, shifts the set point of the normal temperature upward. When this happens a person may experience chills and may shiver in order to generate more heat.

febrile seizures in children between 6 months to 5 years. Febrile seizures can involve loss of consciousness and shake of limbs on both sides of the body. Most seizures do not require treatment because they can stop on their own.
