My question is, what are some fancy-sounding medical/scientific names for cold symptoms? For coughing -- "projectile phlegm expiration" or whatever? There's gotta be real scientific (and scarier sounding) names for things like coughing, sneezing, runny nose, headache, etc., right? Does anybody know them? They don't have to be in common use, even by doctors. Just fancy. :)
ETA: Thank you so much, everyone, for all your wonderful words. I especially like "spasmodic exhalation" and "sputum!"
