I've Lost My Sense Of Smell...!

Fri Sep 02, 2005 5:11 am

I cant smell anything... I've tried vinagar, perfume, tomato ketchup and my bin with no luck what so ever...

Any suggestions as to what i can try and smell?

Has anyone else ever lost one of their five senses?

Only when I've had a cold. And when I lose smell, I usually lose taste as well.

It always came back after a couple of days.

Yes, and it was also my sense of smell. Whenever I have a cold that clogs up my nose, I can hardly smell (or taste) anything, and ever since I got that cloud of HCl gas in my nose it hasn't been the same. I even managed not to smell chlorine one day, but thankfully that happened only once.

I one time lost all my smell, vision in my right eye, hearing in my left ear, and touch on my middle fingers. Talk about a day. I could hear people coming from my right but not see them, I could see people coming from the left but not hear them. Anyways, they all came back after I realized I was dreaming...Your sense of smell will come back, try a skunk!

Play it safe and get it checked out. I just read about a neurological disorder that is preceded by a sudden loss of smell. Can't remember the specific disorder, but read about it in "The Agile Gene".

See a doctor just to be safe.

Is it possible that a 20 or so year old can get alzheimers? Because that's what goes first when you get the disease...or it could be that you've smoked too much?

I suppose one good thing about having no smell is not having to deal with your stench the next time we meet...

You mean the torpedo... LMFAO... Get a bottle of reef, insert a straw into the top, using the straw to allow an equalisation of pressure, suck the alcohol from the bottle as fast as you can. my best is just under 2 seconds for one bottle...

If you can still taste that stuff, you probably haven't lost your sense of smell. Something like 75% of our sense of taste is related to the sense of smell.

Correct Matt, and it's normal. We basically taste food more thanks to our sense of smell than to our proper taste. It's strange, but that's why we prefer, in general, our food to be hot, or at least warm, instead of cold, in order to let more volatile molecules ascend through our nasal pharynx and be grabbed by our smell neurons.

Also, smells can be better remembered than tastes; and still, our reduced ability to remember tastes is given by the sense of smell. If it weren't because of our sense of smell we would more easily forget the taste of everyday food until eating it again, like candy or, even more, lemon; acids are rapidly eliminated by our taste.

Interesting subject, I hope you get better Kaddy.

Kaddyuk -

The sense of smell will come back after a few days. Vicks Vaporub is really strong and can literally desensitize your nerves for a while. Also, the infection or allergy that caused your nasal congestion also probably caused the tissues to swell, therefore impeding your nerve sensation.

Give it a few days!
