My Smeller: a COVID casualty
in Tobacco Talk
Sooo… I just lost my sense of smell this past Friday evening during our virtual pipe club. I had just commented on how bland the blend was I was smoking when all of us online put two and two together. RATS!! Pipe smoking hasn’t been enjoyable sense.
How many of you have also ‘suffered’ with this? When did you get your smell (or taste) back? Were there any blends that you COULD taste?
I'm hoping I'll be like you, @Beetlemanand get it back soon. Pipe smoking's no fun without smell.
Supposedly if you smell these 4-6 minutes a day for a few weeks your smell comes back faster. I have them on order and will start when they arrive Friday. It worked for a friend of mines daughter after she had Covid.
Okay, well, from the research I've done on this (I know quite a few that have lost their smell although I've never been tested and haven't had issues myself), the loss of smell starts roughly 3 or 4 days after the first sign of symptoms, which fits perfectly with your story, and will last up to 4 weeks, although everyone I know, like @Beetleman , has gotten theirs back far sooner than that. Good luck buddy, I feel for ya.
My personal remedy for everything is to drink some 120 degree shots of sake...pour a dram and heat it in the microwave for 10 seconds--keep doing that an hour apart until 1/3 of the bottle is gone. If that doesn't work getting your smell back, it will obviously help in other ways
I had “The Rona”, or so they said, about 10 months ago. I did not lose either my sense of taste or sense of smell. All I had was a slight chest cough, fever and chills, and just felt tired as hell for a few days.
These so called "medical professionals" haven't had a clue since this whole thing started; but I guess we'll continue to call it "science".
I’ll keep you updated on my progress.
Hope you get your sniffer back and feel much better 😁
