Is it possible to have a cold virus in your back or affect your back. I recently had a very bad cold and now my lower back is killing me. My mom says you can have a cold in your back. Is this an old wives tale?

The common cold is a respiratory disease caused by rhinovirus.

Depending on which virus is the culprit, the virus might also produce:

* Sore throat
* Cough
* Muscle aches
* Headache
* Postnasal drip
* Decreased appetite

I can't remember when it started, but for the longest time, I usually get sharp pains in my lower back whenever I get a bad cold. I am a 22 year-old in excellent physical condition. I NEVER have back problems--only when I get a bad cold.

Right now I am on day two of a pretty bad cold and my back hurts like I had been lifting 100lb boxes using only my lower back for the past week. I can't find any info on the internet about it. I have noticed that the pain is must worse when I have a fever too. (Ibuprofen helps quite a bit).

You have company here. http://physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=207965

Not that we came up with any useful answers, but since this is essentially the same question, I'm going to lock this thread. Feel free to continue the discussion in the open thread linked above.
