Those random chills everyone gets, what's up with them?

I'm not sure what they're called so i can't search for it, i tried "chills", but that returned so much on Google i didn't even know where to start. I noticed as a little kid i constantly got these random chills for no appearant reason, but noticed it happened quite often while peeing. As i grew older, i started noticing my friends having this random twitch/chill out of nowhere, my girlfriend gets them and i brought up how it happened frequently for me when peeing, she said she does the same.

Soooo, what causes this?

its an old wives tail that when you randomly shiver, it means someone is walking over your grave.

Re: Those random chills everyone gets, what's up with them?

It's your body's involuntary response when your body temperature slightly dips, so the shiver is triggered in an effort to warm up the body.

If you do an internet search for it, you'll find the answer. The BS about someone walking over your grave is just....well....BS.
