The truth about constipation?

Constipado...ah what a fun word! But what's the truth about it?

Everybody on Internet translate it by having a cold, being congested...even Babylon translator shows that definition. However I spoke with my friend in Mexico, she is a translator and she says that during school while doing medical translation they were told it was wrong, it was a misused of this word. It seems that constipado would indeed mean constipated and congested would be congestionado. If fact in Mexico they just say tener gripe or tener un catarro.

So, what's the truth about it all?
