Repertory question - difference between chill and chilliness?


In Kent's Repertory the words 'Chill' and 'Chilliness' often appear as seperate rubriks. For example, the following are seperate rubriks with different remedies:

head; hot; during chill
head; hot; during chilliness

Can someone please tell me what is the difference?

Thanks in advance.

I tend to agree with john.

Chill is normally used while denoting the stages of fever,
the three stages are heat,chill,sweat.This is applicable mostly to malaria cases.

Chilliness is a senation.A person may feel chilly while others don't feel it under the same circumstances.

"Chill" is like a winter evening...

"Chilliness" is like sitting in a refrigerator for two hours and coming out of it!!
