A better name for a cold might be "inflammation virus"?

This is an idea I just came up with after getting a "cold". Last week it started with sneezing - just sneezing. The inner lining of my nose became slightly inflammed, just enough to make me sneeze. Then after a couple of days it moved down to my throat and caused me to cough. The inflammation was moving down. Then the next day I felt a slight inflammation in my upper chest. So now I think of it as an "inflammation virus" rather than a cold virus.

Now here's the really strange part: One day, after having the cold for about a week, I went to bed with these symptoms and woke up in the morning without them. Instead I had a strain in my lower back - it began hurting. My theory is that the (inflammation) virus kept moving down and eventually got into my lower back. Is that possible?

Is there any rule in the medical world that says a cold virus can't keep moving down into other areas of the body?

How possible do you think it is on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is the least possible and 10 is highly possible?


P.S. Yesterday and last night was the worst but I'm already feeling better.
