Does anyone else get chills after quitting when drinking cold drinks?

When I quit smoking last May, I followed the Elders' advice of drinking lots of cold water.  It did indeed help, but I noticed that I would feel really chilly for quite awhile afterwards.  Like when you get chills with a fever.  I recently started drinking a lot of ice water again (doctor's suggestion), and have noticed the chills again.  Even if the surrounding temperature I'm in is warm. This never happened before that I remember.  I'm not sure if it has anything to do with being nicotine free, or if it's just an age thing.  As my doc says whenever I say I've never had some symptom before, "You've never been this old before either"

 

Anyone else have this?
