Hey, I am just going to ramble here to see if anyone else has the same problem. I was the victim of a hit and run while I was walking. I was thrown up in the air and landed on my head. It fractured my skull on the left side and split the skull open on the right side which required 7 staples. It also fractured the left side of my face from the edge of my ear over to my nose. My sinus had several rips or holes in it. To make a long story short, after this happened I lost my sense of smell and taste.
It is horrible, because I only eat to satisfy my hunger and not to enjoy certain foods. I am writing this information to see if anyone else has had similar problems from a head accident. Also if anyone has regained their smell and taste. If so, how did you do it? Did you take or apply something? Did it come back on its own? I was told by the neurologist that if it didn’t come back within 6 months , than it probably would not come back. March 15th was the 6 month mark. BUMMER!!!!
I made the mistake of using a heat gun to strip some paint off a wall in my basement. I could not smell the fumes created by the heat gun when it melts the paint, and I got very sick and almost passed out. Have to remember not to use anything with a toxic odor, such as sprays, gasoline, propane gas, etc..
I would like to hear any and all comments, suggestions, or cures that anyone might have. Thanks for listening.
