Default Covid Question

I had a really bad case of Covid 10 months ago but never lost my smell and my taste was everything tasted salty, even water. That hung around a month or so.
Fast forward to a month ago, my smell slowly started going away. Yesterday I stuck my nose in a bottle of Mr Clean lemon and nothing. I took a home Covid test and it was negative.
Has this happened to anyone ? Wondering how long it will be gone ?

Buddy is nearly two years in with everything tasting like cheap vanilla/vanilla wafers.

Had it back in September, lost my smell, not taste. Lasted about 4 weeks and slowly came back. Still get a burnt cigarette smell to this day, best way I can explain it. So weird.

I have heard people talking about “long covid” with longer lasting symptoms.

It’s different for everyone, most days I smell used motor oil all the time and I had covid in December of 2020. Lots of other symptoms between then and now but I’m much better now.

I had a mild case of covid back in late July/early August. I still don't smell things quite right. Coffee, diesel and gasoline all have very similar smells that I have yet to identify. Kind of an industrial chemical smell. Many things still do taste the way they did. And weirdest of all is I can't smell a fart.

Big no on the vaccine. I was over weight at the time when I did have covid. Mild case IMO, but it did last 10 days. Fever a few times, just tired, but no cough or any other symptoms. Only reason why I got tested, I had a big dove hunt and was going to be around a lot of people, rapid test was negative and pcr test came back positive, 7 days later. Entire family went through it, my wifeís symptoms only lasted 3 days, she was just tired.

Had covid December 2020 and got vaccine March and April of Ď21 because some had reported it relieved long covid symptoms. Bullchit ! Had heart attack in May Ď21 probably caused by vaccine. Extremely sick and weak until mid summer Ď21 when I contacted an online doc that really helped me. It has been a long road and Iím just getting over it these last couple months. I may live to be 76 !

No vaccine for me (FN ever) and I never had Covid. Took Vitamin C, D, B12, Quercetin, Zinc daily and Ivermectin weekly. Wife did the same and she got Omicron in late January. She lost smell for about 2 weeks and was slightly sick for about 4 days and over it in a week. FJB

I was left with a very weird smell for months after covid. It still comes back every now and then.

I can never quite pin down the smell... but it would be close to tortillas just about to the point of being burnt, with a hint of vanilla.


Long before CV I would occasionally/rarely get that weird phantom smell of cigarettes... this is different. There were days I thought the smell was coming "from" me.

Got the moderna jab in April of Ď21. Got the Ďrona in August of Ď21.

Never lost taste. Lost smell for about 8-10 days. Which is about how long all my other symptoms lasted. I was a pretty sick puppy during that time but did not require hospitalization.

Havenít had any issues since then.

It's hard to know if you have Covid if you never get tested...I've never been tested so no covid. I will never take a vaccine...I guess I am pretty lucky...I never go to the dr. I only use otc drugs and drink lots of fluids(mainly tito's) never wear a mask and just live life like I always did before. It's been good so far...I guess we will see in a few years if I have been doing the right thing. I have never lost taste or smell during the whole "covid scare." I guess I lied...I had a knee scoped about 8 weeks ago, maybe I had a case of covid knee...never know I guess.

Default Covid Question

I read all of the comments. Some pretty crazy stuff. One thing I did forget to mention is when I had Covid and I was hospitalized with Delta pneumonia in July / August, took about 3 months to recover. Got the vaccine in Nov/Dec.
I have been ok until this month when my smell went completely away.

A lot of the pnuemonia cases have turned out to be swelling of the lungs from allergic reactions to to either the covid or the jab - front line dr's have found out that antihistamines cure it better

I would highly recommend that you get on ivermectin immediately as well as a daily antihistamine. This was slowly taking me down until I started the regiment. After every knife class I would get a girgling in my stomach as well as other symptoms AFTER EVERY CLASS

My wife lost taste and smell for about a year, and then lettuce tasted like cigarettes/smoke and she couldn't eat any salad or taco with lettuce for another year. 2 years later and having covid 3 times, she can enjoy tacos and salads.

My Vid was last July. Still have a lot of taste and scent issues. Red wine tastes bad, citrus is barely a scent, and smoke not a thing. Only upside is when I enter the airport bathrooms after someone polluted the space, I smell nothing.

Loss of taste and smell were my main symptoms in Feb 2021. Now I’d say my smell is at 45% and my taste 50-60%.

I had it last July and about a week later lost my sense of smell. The next morning I stuck my nose in the coffee can and inhaled through my nose as deep as possible. I could barely smell the coffee so I did that a couple more times and been fine since. My daughter lost her sense of smell a few months earlier so I told her about the coffee. She did the same thing and has been fine since.

A definite upside!

My nephew had it a year ago and has taste and smell, but itís not like it used to be. He says everything smells and tastes bad.

I believe your on to something. When I got it my right knee started aching all the time and then water on the knee then wear a brace for a year and a half and I know it could be arthritis? But why did it hit me and my Dad and my Wife (10 years younger than me) all at the same time? All started after catching the rona. I still can't straighten my leg or it will collapse on me and walk with a persistent limp now

I had it last August, lost taste and smell second or third day I was positive. Very mild case, no shot. My taste came back mostly pretty quickly, smell is another story. I could smell sweet things but nothing fowl. I smelled my first skunk last weekend, it was great. (Actually like the smell of skunk, from cover scent when I was younger). Some things still don’t taste quite right, it I’d say it’s 95% normal. Pretty sure I had another case a few months ago, but didn’t go get tested again. Just kept my distance from people for a few days.

So all the people losing smell and taste did yíall lose weight over time because eating was no longer enjoyable? Iím guessing eating was more of a chore.

I'm 68 and have had problems in the past with pulmonary embolisms. I had both shots and the booster and caught covid for the first time about 3 weeks ago. I got the infusion and never lost taste or smell. I'm still congested, slight headache and tired. My wife caught it too and has a pace maker and still has cough and tired. Effects all people differently. Good luck.

Did some research and found out that studies suggest that it can cause the body to attack itself and can cause Ruemetoid arthritis in joints
