Parosmia

I have diagnosed myself with this condition after a three month upper respiratory infection. I now have typical Parosmia symptoms with a foul vomit-like smell and having markedly little other smell and taste functions. I'm trying to find out as much as I can on the subject and what, if anything, can help.  In the past two months I also have a slight nauseous feeling all the time and wondered if this were another symptom of Parosmia - the research I've done so far doesn't mention this. I have little appetite but my brain keeps telling me to try different foods but nothing has any taste or flavour. From what I've read I could have this condition for up to two years which is awful to contemplate so I'd be interested to know from others how they cope.

Self diagnosing is a dangerous business. If it's something worse, and left untreated there could be dire consequences. I totally suggest seeing an ENT...two if need be.
