Older guy..fair health..have always had keen sense of taste and smell.
I got the virus so many folks have had..not the flu as no fever...just a nasty long lasting virus cold...lasted about 3-4 weeks...came out of it with a very damaged taste and smell sense...I can't open a jar of vicks and do more than just sense a bit of a menthol smell...I can eat pizza or other spicy foods and they just taste the same..
Going to the Dentist Tuesday and to the doctor on Thursday to try and track this down...just wondered if any one else ever had this kind of thing? I didn't take any unknown medicine or special treatment for my virus...just lots of OJ, rest and some vics and cough drops now and then..
Hard to be interested in eating dinner and that's not good..
More interested in how you dealt with it and did your senses come back over a period of time? I'll see the doc and dentist and see what they prescribe but just needed to see if anyone else ever went through this.
