When i breath in or out i taste blood in my mouth but there isn't any, and when i cough i feel like i'm coughing up blood but i'm not. Why is that?

When i breath in or out i taste blood in my mouth but there isn't any, and when i cough i feel like i'm coughing up blood but i'm not. Why is that?

Puzzler: If you taste blood but there is none, perhaps you are experiencing a metallic taste, which many describe blood to taste like. If so, think about medications being taken, many cause this, and there are medical conditions that can mimic this as well. It is beyond an internet diagnosis, and i suggest you see your physician soon to sort it out. Good luck! ...Read more

I got drunk two weeks ago and smoked out of a dollar bill. Now I'm really sick and coughing up blood. What can I do?

See your doctor: coughing up blood is always a potential danger sign, and requires evaluation as soon as possible. I am not aware of anything in a dollar bill that can cause that kind of reaction, but you didn't say exactly WHAT you smoked, and I have the feeling it wasn't tobacco. See your doctor or go to an urgent care setting for evaluation, which may require a chest Xray/other tests. If cocaine, get help now ...Read more
