Hello, i have this problem in mouth and nose I smell and taste metal. It usually occurs when I sneeze, laugh too hard or breath heavily.

Oral Hygiene: Sometimes bacteria trapped in the throat and tonsils and tongue can give a metal taste sensation. Brush regularly, gargle, and use a tongue scraper. If the problem persists, consider seeing a dentist. There are other causes for this, but they would not generally be triggered by the things that do this to you (sneeze, laugh). ...Read more

Hello, not sure if I should be concerned, but I have been having a pain in my chest area...if I sneeze or yawn or take a deep breathe, it hurts...

Seek evaluation: When chest pain occurs it is sometimes difficult to know for sure if it is related to the heart, to the surrounding muscles, like within your rib cage, or something in the gastrointestinal system, like heart burn. Even though you are young, it sounds like something that should be evaluated soon with an exam. Best of luck! ...Read more

I have had a sharp pain when I take a deep breath on left side of chest for 2 days. I don't have a cold but when I sneezed the pain was even worse?

Chest pain: This may either be due to an inflammatory process in your rib-cartillage attachments, intercostal (between ribs) muscles or tendons, something causing irritation of the pleura (two thin layers of tissue protecting the lungs), or something in the rib itself. You need to be seen and examined by a professional to get this worked out. Good luck. ...Read more

Why is it hard for me to breath? I can't take a deep breath, my nose keeps running, I keep sneezing.

Breathing difficulty: Hello, it sounds like your allergies are getting the best of you. I would recommend an antihistamine and afrin nasal spray. The afrin is used 2x/day and no longer than 5 days. This will open your blocked nasal pathways and the antihistamine will relieve your allergy symptoms. ...Read more

Injury?: If there's no chance that you've injured yourself (?), meaning a muscular or skeletal contusion or fracture, the next most likely cause is pleurisy. If you have fever, it is more serious as that would suggest parenchymal lung involvement. If you have no fever, NSAIDs like Advil or Aleve (naproxen) are a good treatment. It will take time to resolve but should get better. If not, get checked for rare causes. ...Read more

I'm hurting under my left shoulder blade when I cough, sneeze, yawn, take a deep breath, or laugh sitting up or leaning forward does help?

Pleuritis: Unless you have a rare deformity of the underside of the scapula, the best bet is pleurisy. The lining of the lung is separated from the moving tissue by a fluid that occasionally is lacking in one spot and gets stuck. The irritation can persist and rarely requires medical help. Almost always you can wait and see if it is a transient and intermittant irritation. ...Read more

I am having pain in the right flank area of my back it has been a dull ache for months lately it hurts even more when I take a deep breath or move differently I do urinate frequently thru the day and evening not painful though even hurts when I sneeze it

Many possibilities: See your family doctor so he or she can rule out serious problems from a kidney stone to an infection or perhaps a musculo-skeletal issue. It can even be from the lining of your lungs. Lastly it could even be something pressing on your urinary system.
I wouldn't wait to deal with this. ...Read more

Left sided pleural effusion diagnosed as TB. After 4 month treatment feel a pull in left lung when I sneeze yawn cough or take a deep long breath.

Pleural effusion: The effusion may not have fully cleared yet but the most likely feeling is some scar tissue has formed and attached some lung to the chest wall. The lung itself has no pain fibers but the lining of the chest wall does and this could cause the feeling you have. You need to follow up with your MD and get a repeat chest X-Ray. ...Read more

Flu like illness: It sounds like you have a respiratory infection- whether that's the flu or any one of other germs remains in question. If you see a doctor, they can perform diagnostic tests to help figure out what you have (cultures, blood work, chest X-rays etc). You may have 'reactive airways' — something like asthma that could trigger the paroxysms of cough you describe. Hope you can schedule an apt with doc. ...Read more
