no, because a fever is designed to cool the body's temperature... shivering is the natural response to 'being cold'- the contractions of muscles generate heat to warm the body through friction

For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal. A serious note about heart attacks - You should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know the better chance we could survive.

Can you get a fever by getting stuck in a freezer?

Interesting question! Being in a freezer without adequate clothing to keep you warm can cause hypothermia, and all the fun involved with recovering from hypothermia, or death, assuming you do not recover. The kind of fever I think you speak of is an inflammatory response triggered by your immune system. Prolonged periods of cold exposure and dropped body temperatures can lower your immune system, allowing a pathogen to take hold, which in turn may cause a fever. The cold itself however will not cause a fever.
