comment Does 寒気がする really mean “have a chill” or is it just cold?
What would you say to convey having non-illness chills? I am a 寒がり, so there are some winter mornings where I'm not sick and I just cannot get warm. I've used 悪寒 before (今朝はずっと悪寒!), but from what you said, this wasn't correct because I wasn't sick.

Does 寒気(さむけ) overlap with 悪寒 then? Although I don't think 悪寒 implies having a fever/cold, does it?

So "have a chill" = "spine-tingling" in that sense. I wonder how many dictionaries have that as part of the definition.

comment Difference between 〜といい〜といい & 〜といわず〜といわず
Upvoting and starring this question. I remember I had a hell of a time trying to figure this out when I studied it. It's been a while, so I'll have to look at it again before (if) I can give an answer. Also, why do all the good questions get asked when I have no time to answer them?

comment X is near or next to Y. Is my understanding of this correct?
@dotnetN00b: I've never heard that usage for となり. I think you're either mistaken on it, or it's some slang I'm not familiar with. Here's a reference to what I thought you were talking about.

となり (隣) means "next to". It is not と+なり, which, based on your question, seems like what you were thinking.
