It is common to feel a little shivering in winters. But when the cold starts feeling more than necessary, there is difficulty in breathing and the body starts feeling unconscious, then it is a state of emergency.

As a result, the body temperature drops below average, this is called hypothermia. This is the reason why in winter it is advised to cover the body especially the head, ears and neck.
According to the report of MayoClinic, a state of shivering is created when the body temperature drops too much. Apart from this, gradually the heart, nervous system and other organs are not able to work properly. If not treated in time, these organs can stop working completely and death can occur.
