    Is it common to have cold chills and sweats both?

    They seem to alternate through the day.

      Been there, done that. When I was on chemo, my body had issues regulating temperature. Worse at night. I'd bundle up, go to sleep, then throw off blankets. And that was BEFORE the surgical menopause set in... Good luck!

      I remember having chills and night sweats from chemo. Check your temperature and follow the guidelines on when to call the doctor.
      I know once chemo was over, I was cold for months. It changes your whole system.

      That's one symptom I have not had.

      If you are in treatment, your immune system (which can regulate body temperature among other things) is under almost as much attack as the cancer. Thus, when the immune system is provoked or compromised, any number of strange occurrences may happen. I am assuming that your blood work is current and that doctor is up to date? You might discuss this with out team as some of it may also depend on the particular treatment that you are receiving.
