A guy we know said he's stopped dipping, smoking and drinking because of it, still no smell or taste and it's been a month.

I've read some articles where it says some people will loose it permanently. Also some people will never smell (not as in body odor) the same again, things that once tasted or smelled good, now smelled disgusting and vice versa.

If my allergies act up, I can't taste the big 3. I just switch to an IPA...which sounds real good about now. Need to make a beer run sometime today.

You don't realize how much you depend on your sense of smell until you completely loose it, it's actually kind of dangerous ... what if there was a gas leak or a fire in the house?



Tested positive on December 1st. Just went back to work this week. I had same as Huckleberry, zero taste and zero smell. I damn near burnt the house down, didn't realize it until war department came screaming through the house. I couldn't smell 30% agriculture vinegar under my nose and that chit will burn the hair off your body.

So it is now day 30 and I have maybe 60% or better taste and maybe 10% of my smell back.

Positive on 10/23 - ran 101+ fever for 13 straight days - lost taste & small. As someone else mentioned, lost a few pounds with no taste.
Taste and smell returned over Thanksgiving holiday....and the pounds.

I wonder if the guy that coined the phrase "One hit wonder" came up with
with any other catchy phrases...

Just want to make folks smile, and spit coffee on their keyboard.

If you put beans in your chili, you don't know beans about chili.

If they don't feel it going in, they'll feel it coming out...

You don't understand ..... I mean 100% loss of taste and smell ... in other words, you could blind folded me and stuck a pile of dog chit under my nose and I wouldn't have known it.

I want to test this. I have a dog and a blindfold. Come on over. My plans are changing for New Years.

Wife and I both caught it back in late June. Didn't realize I lost my sense of taste and smell until a few days into it when my wife was wiping the counters with a Clorox wipe and I couldn't smell it. I even tried sniffing the container and nothing. Took a few weeks to fully taste and smell again. It took me three and a half weeks to get over it. Aches, pains, and fever only lasted about a week but the sinus congestion and headaches are what lingered. Also seemed to have a shortness of breath for a few months after. Just wonder what the long term effects will be.

I too would like to know the long term effects.

I still get winded after walking or talking for any length of time.

Furthermore, my oxygen levels still haven't gone back to normal, I haven't been over 95 yet.

The long-term effects are unknown, and that's the scary part. For all we know Covid could eventually cause a loss of feeling in your private parts. If that should happen, you'll see some serious mask wearing.

I took the antibody test, in May. Showed Positive. My wife showed Negative. Only time I had been sick at all was a lingering cough the second week of November 2019 through the first week of December. So either I had it before it was supposedly here, had it and didn't know it, or test was a false positive.

What's really weird is where I work. Everybody wears masks, at work, and out and about. Except for four of us. Everyone has either had it, and gotten sick, or has it now. Except for the four of us, since it's been mandated to wear a mask. Nobody had it when masks weren't mandated, after it was already here.
