Could be thrush from your meds... or blood from coughing

Me! Its from coughing so much and so hard you can rupture blood vessels in your esophagus, I get it with my morning sickness a lot :(

But if it's blood from coughing isnt that dangerous

Is it little spots of blood? When it turns into blood clots is when you need to be worried.

I've had that same kind of taste last year. I'm pretty sure its just from all the coughing. Hope you feel better and I wouldn't get too worried if your doctor seemed cool about it.

I wouldn't get to scared, unless it gets worse. I honestly just think its because your throat is sore from coughing so much

You are ok then :) When you see it then you need to worry if its large amounts. If you had any type of fluid in your lungs you would be struggling to breathe (worse than what the bronchitis feels like)
