Symptoms of a cold
Coughing, sneezing, chills, and a runny nose are the familiar symptoms of a cold. The common cold is actually caused by several different viruses, with rhinoviruses being the most common culprit. One symptom that isn’t part of a cold is a fever.
Typically, if you have a fever, you are more likely to have the flu. You may also feel tired and rundown. Having a cold may also affect your mood. Some people report feeling sad and depressed when they’re sick.
