About a year and a half ago my husband went in for a routine filling on a tooth. A couple of days later he noticed that he couldn't taste anything. He called the dentist who was at a loss and sent him to an oral surgeon who was also at a loss. My husband did some research himself and discovered that it was most likely that what happened was when the dentist gave him the shot to deaden the nerve for the filling he inadvertently hit the Choda tympani nerve. Also within days of this filling he would start sneezing uncontrollable and developed severe tinnitus. The only thing that stopped was the sneezing. He still to this day can not taste, or if he does it is a horrible taste unrelated to anything he ate. The Tinnitus is at least every other day or sometimes two or three days in a row. The doctors are oblivious to how to help him. They have done an MRI and everything is fine. They have basically thrown their collective hands up in the air and think he's nuts. They've said it may or may not come back. He is so depressed at this point that he keeps saying he can't live like this much longer. I am very concerned for his physical and mental wellbeing. Is there anyone else out there who has gone through this?!?! Is there any hope at all?!?! PLEASE!!!!!!
