Question metallic taste after cough

I was wondering if anyone would have any idea what might cause a metallic taste in the mouth after a cough. I started with a sore throat and headache feeling like I had a little bit of a flu, but the sore throat has gotten better, but now my chest is tight. Now I have a cough and after the cough I have a metal taste in my mouth. Could the metal taste be the sigh of an infection in the chest? I appreciate any advice that anyone has.

Mike

Re: metallic taste after cough

Hi there, Whenever I have a cough (ever since I was a kid) I have that same metallic tast in my mouth, but I always described it as the taste of blood(I guess it's the iron that we're tasting). I'm almost 100% sure that it's nothing to worry about as I have experienced that a dozen or more times in my life.
What I think it is, is a little bit of blood (not enough to see) from having an irritated throat and lungs from being sick.
This is only speaking from experience, see a doctor just incase.
