Marketing & Sales Support Specialist & Office Manager. I am experiencing some health issues such as Parosmia that I would like to learn more about. Anyone with information on treatments for "Smell & Taste Distortion, please contact me.
Hi there ... I just found this site while searching for people with same issues I am having...you aredescribing exactly what I am experiencing. EVERYTHING smells and tastes sickly sweet, rancid and chemically. Started 2 weeks ago out of the blue - no colds/viruses preceeding - totally healthy! SO frustrated - love to eat. Having MRI in a few days - can't imagine this going on and on. Sending you best wishes :-) Michelle.
My wife has been tested and also has A1298C. I read your post and have some information that may be helpful to you. Please check your vitamin D levels and make certain they are up around 70 or 80. I would guess that your levels would be good since you live in FL. However, if they are not, it could mean that you have a gluten allergy a.k.a celiac disease. Low vitamin D levels are assoicated with diabetes. Best of luck.
I checked out your new post - It sounds as if would be a miracle if there is actually a cure out there after all you have been through and all of your research. I have not had a chance to check out yahoo. did you try the flip-flush method that "friggy" supports?
Yikes - disappointing to hear you are still struggling with this. From the activity on this site, it looks like others have experienced the same thing but describe a gas fume smell. I'm shocked the doctors could not cure it. Someone who goes by the name of Friggie suggests a "flip-flush" of the sinuses. Tried it once this morning and got the worse sinus headache of my life....I normally have no pain, runny nose - nothing except a distorted sense of smell. Food taste is also distorted. I tried your noseplug idea and could taste nothing. I guess I'll make an appt. with the doc and try a round of antibiotic. Many thanks for getting back to me. Your's was the first discription that sounded so similar to my experence.
