Salty mucus

I have had a very bad taste in my mouth along with excess mucus since I finished chemotheropy for breast cancer one year ago.  I constantly have mucus coming from the nasal area into my mouth with a very salty taste.  Part of my tongue also feels numb as do my finger tips and toes.  I do have bronchiactasis but my respiratory specialist feels it has nothing to do with the problem.   My GP also doesn't know what it could be nor the oncologist.  I am on an arimatase inhibitor called Arimidex which could account for bad taste but the mucus is the problem.  Thanks for any help you might have.

Dear Gayle
I couldn't believe it when I read you comment about all the problems you are suffering after all the treatment for breast cancer.  I am suffering exactly the same one year on from the chemo.  I too have been blaming Arimidex.  Can I ask you if you are coughing badly with the mucus too?  I feel like I am chocking at times!  I know what you mean about the salty taste, and yet my food actually tastes bland.  I would love to hear from you.
