Has Anyone Had Taste and Smell Loss Reoccur After COVID-19?

Edited , 6 users are following.

I had COVID-19 almost two months ago and lost my taste and smell. It has not come back 100%, but it did get better. It seems like I've suddenly lost a lot of my taste again tonight, and I'm wondering if anyone has experienced this (waxing and waning of taste and smell following recovery)? My concern is that I may have COVID-19 again and that this is a sign, but I know COVID-19 can do weird things. Has anyone experienced a reoccurrence of taste or smell loss after getting it back?

    Hi - I think I've had a similar thing. I had COVID-19 around 2 months ago too and my symptoms were headache, duller sense of smell and lethargy. I've been basically fine since, aside from occassional sinus/head pressue, but today I woke up and definitely felt like my sense of smell is duller again (kind of similar to when I had it - I can still smell but much milder). I even went and did a rapid test as I was worried I had caught it again, but it was negative, and I felt it was too soon to be able to catch it again! I'm presuming it's some weird sudden onset of long covidy thing? It's interesting you say yours has been waxing and waning too...... so odd!!

    What ended up happening with your symptom? Did you get tested in the end?
