1 doctor agrees

In brief: My perspective

As a dentist you may have some old failing fillings that as you cough may make you notice the metallic taste (assuming you have amalgam/silver fillings) as far as what coming out of your lungs you may want to consult your md if this doesnt clear up quickly!
