Salt sensitivity?

Background: my husband just completed a course of IV antibiotics for endocarditis. He has had trouble eating because "everything tastes like salt."  He takes a bite of fresh foods and spits it out because he says it is like biting into a block of pure salt. We are not talking prepackaged foods either. When he tries to drink those nutritional shakes, he vomits them up within an hour or so.
I understand at this point we are looking at him going back to the hospital (he was in the ICU for a week).
But has anyone ever experienced this problem with chemical changes in taste?
The Doctors we have spoken too have not been able to help any.  Thanks in advance.
