My sense of smell and taste is completely distorted!
About 12 weeks ago i slipped and fell and hit my head on a tiled floor, when i woke up in the morning i had no recollection of what happened that evening. My pillow had blood on it, so i had obviously split the back of my head and within a few hours of waking i had 2 black eyes. I didnt have a concussion, i think, because i didnt feel ill, however now, my sense of smell and taste and completely distorted. I dont seem to have lost it completely, i can still taste salty, sweet, bitter however, anything with a strong aroma smells, well i'm not sure, like plastic and when i eat red meat, chicken, pork or toasted foods tastes like plastic. I've not had a scan yet to make sure i dont have a bleed, however its really starting to get me down because i'm struggling to eat anything, i just know its going to taste bad. I'm wondering if this will ever come back... any comments would be greatly appreciated, K
