Anyone have odd sensory issues?

I'm on my sixth week of focused radiation and temodar daily. In the past week I've started to have odd sensory issues. For example... the other morning, I had to get out of bed to use the restroom and swear I smelt coffee! I hate Coffee and don't even own a coffee pot. I even went outside on the porch to see if maybe it was coming from somewhere outside and couldn't smell it... then lastnight as I was falling asleep, I could smell something funny. COuldn't put my finger on what it was at first, but eventually it came to me. It was like someone was burning cedar mulch. Weird! I also have been having ringing and fullness in my ears, which my radiation/oncologist told me was to be expected, but now my ears itch and I constantly hear things that I know aren't there. Like when I'm downstairs, I can hear my relaxation music that is OFF upstairs... and my taste buds have been just plain disgusting since my surgery in January, but now it's so much worse. I can't even describe the taste in my mouth and when I lick my lips it tastes like finger nail polish remover. Just wondering if anyone else experienced these odd issues?
