Moderate pain in lower back, neck, pain on bending, deep breathing, metallic taste in mouth. Is it worrisome?

hello, in the past 3 days I have been experiencing moderate pain in lower back (just below my ribs) on both sides of my back. Hurts to bend down, pick-up, and breath deeply. Additionally, been having persistent metallic taste in mouth at the same time. Are these symptoms of a serious nature? I just thought they were sore ribs.

The symptoms provided by you are only general in nature, it is difficult to make a diagnosis on their basis. it could be an intestinal infection, renal colic etc., bad taste may be due to prolonged stress etc. So, it is better if you see your physician and get yourself examined clinically and by investigations. Hear-say is not applicable in Medical Science, every case is a different case so do not find similarities in others or on net. Only a skilled Medico can help you.

Wish you a speedy recovery to health
