Chesty cough, metallic taste in mouth. What is this ?

Hi. I have had a chesty cough for about 10 days and yesterday I started experiencing a metallic taste in my mouth after coughing. What is this? I saw a GP yesterday and she said that there are signs of a chest infection but that it s likely that I m over the worst of it. However I never mentioned the metallic taste. Should I be concerned? I am otherwise well. Thank you.

If you are getting over your chest infection, there is nothing much needs to be done as you will be perfectly alright very soon. But if symptoms persist for some more time and phlegm continues, i suggest you go in for some blood tests and at least a chest x ray in cosultation with your doctor.
