When I cough it tastes like bleach. I have to rigorously cough

This answer was rated:

When I cough it tastes like bleach. I have to rigorously cough in order to get phlegm out of my lungs. The phlegm is colored rusty, and I've had several bad nosebleeds the past few days. Should I go to the ER?
Nose bleeds should not cause lung problems by themselves. Some likely causes for your symptoms are viral infection, pneumonia, acid reflux etc. It would certainly be a good idea to go tot he nearest ER and get some tests done such as blood tests, chest X-ray, and an exam of heart and lungs.
