Ammonia taste in back of throat, lower back pain. Why am i experiencing this?

I have an ammonia taste in the back of my throat, as well as lower back pain . I have been sick with cold symptoms for the past 3 weeks with a very bad sore throat . I also had a mild fever for one of those two weeks. I also feel like I may have a UTI as well. What do you think this could be? I do have an appointment scheduled w/my PCP next week.

the taste can be due to the medicines that u have used for fever and sorethroat.
