Anosmia / Loss Of Smell

Anosmia, or the loss of the sense of smell, might happen as a result of injury, infection, or genetics. It is more dangerous than people generally imagine – an anosmic person might not be able to smell gas leaks, for example, or bad food.

I have a cold problem, DNS, and sinusitis from 14 years old and now I am 26. I did't get smell for 7 years. At first it came back time to time and then again lose, but now it permanently gone. I didn't take any antibiotics but treated some medicine like, antazole, rhinozole, alactrol, flunospray e.t.c. I didn't take medicine for 3 years also. What can I do now?

I also have the problem of getting the right smell especially during winters! I have consulted a few doctors, but my situation haven't improved much. Can anyone suggest remedies for this problem of mine?

are you sure? I have anosmia and I can't sense coffee. My friend tested me. And ammonia, as in when you let your pee sit in the toilet without flushing? Yea, I definitely can't smell that. Docs tested me with an alcohol pad too and I couldn't identify that, so wherever you're getting your information, please review it's authenticity

I am a 32-year-old male who has been suffering from anosmia for the past 10 years. Initially, I had sinusitis problems and has been undergoing different kinds of treatments without any significant relief. one of those was the ayurvedic treatment of nasya for approximately 10 days, which made my life a hell, where I lost my smell and consulted an ENT and was told was due to mucus infection and had undergone again various treatments resulting in polypoidectomy too, but everything was in vain. Ultimately, these treatments have provided nothing, but depression, a life without taste, smell, nothing more than a hell, it just continues. Right now, I am undergoing homeopathic treatment, but that too without any success. It should be noted that once in a while, for a fraction of second, I do get smell, and it vanishes for ever. Please may I know kindly if there is any remedy for me to regain my smell and taste back, so that my life will be of some meaning to me. Please do guide me as to which physician I need to consult. Of note, I had CT scan about 5 years ago, which did not reveal anything of significance.

I'm 46 year old white male and as far back as I can remember I have not had a sense of smell. Sometimes I'm grateful I don't but most of the time I really wish I did. I work in Law Enforcement and it is a sense that would really come in useful most of the time. I don't have a loss of apatite. I am more drawn to sweet foods than most other types of foods. I had an extreme case of chicken pox as a kid...far worse than most people. As a matter of fact the Doctors in the emergency room I went to took pictures of me because they had not seen a case as severe as mine. I have had severe sinusitis as a young adult 25-33. I had surgery that opened up all my sinuses and removed some huge polyps be hind my right eye. I was getting horrible head aches as a result of my chronic sinus problems. Since that time I haven't had anymore problems. I used to smoke for about 14 or so years but have not smoked for about 15-16 years. I would love to be able to smell my wife's perfume, her cooking, or on the job I'd love to be able to detect the smell of alcohol and drugs. Is there any hope of gaining a sense of smell? Where would I go to get answers>
