For a week now I've had an issue where I can't breathe in deep due to some pain I get in my right lung around my back near the ribs. I'm unable to yawn properly or sneeze because of it. Now only recently, about two days ago, I've been waking up with a weird taste in the back of my mouth that usually wanes throughout the day and whenever I cough I can taste it. Just today I noticed taking a deep breath doesn't hurt as much as it did last week but now whenever I inhale deeply that same odd taste comes back as I exhale. I haven't noticed anything peculiar whenever I spit, no blood or excess mucus or anything. Just a rather foul taste.

Any ideas what this could be?

Any ideas what this could be?Well I found this site again and saw I had posted this thread so I may as well put this out there for anyone who's got similar symptoms. Some days after I posted this I got a bad cough attack and had to go to the hospital. I was diagnosed with pneumonia but it's all good now after taking antibiotics.So if youve got symptoms like these, you can have an idea of what it may be.

  • GO TO THE DOCTOR ASAP! I had ARDS and this was one of my biggest onsets (other than not being able to breath). The weird taste was blood inside mucous. When blood is sitting in your lungs, it's not red, it's brown....Many people won't think it's blood but they think it's a typical cold (or if you smoke, nothing) Better be safe than sorry with this one, I wasn't and it put me in the hospital for 42 days and over a year of recovery. Good luck
