    I really can't say if my sense of smell is worse or not but I have definitely developed "allergies" or sinus issues. I wake up every day so congested. I recall having the same problem when I was pregnant both times so surely a hormonal thing. Are you stuffed up as well?

    I smell everything but my taste buds are off. My Dr said that it might be down to an infection so the next time you see your dr tell him/her about your lack of smell. I'm sorry that I couldn't reassure you. Take care.

    You may want to ask you doctor about the poor sense of smell. It could be due to many factors, but it is also an early sign of Parkinsons Disease. Not to upset you!! It was my husband's first sign, which started in his 30s.

      My mom has had Parkinson's for 9 years now. She can smell EVERYTHING! So, that isn't always the case. But honestly I personally wouldn't put that in a response. Just saying. With anxiety high around here no use in creating extra worry!
