| | sulfur taste when i cough please help
I have been having alot of upper respiratory problems in the past year, but this one seems different. It started out with flu like symptoms and pain in the lower back part of my lung. I had a little bit of a dry cough, which didn't really hurt. some of the pain was similar to plurasy which i had about 2 months ago. Well finally i went to the doctor, i don't have a family doctor, it was an urgent care facility where the doctor pretty much breezed in and out of the room hardly even hearing what i said, he said i had an upper respiratory infection prescribed me and antibiotic and sent me home. Well that night my cough started getting worse, and feels warm and tastes like sulfur. It is the worst thing i have ever tasted in my life, the taste gags me. I have read about tonsil stones which are said to taste and smell like sulfur, i have had these, though i never noticed the taste, i don't currently have them. Is it possible to get these further down in the throat, or even the lung? Sometimes when i cough hard the top of my throat gets scratchy like something is going to come up. Also leading up to me getting sick this time and most of the time i have been sick i have had a lump in my throat feeling. If anyone might have a clue what this is please help, i am very concerned.
