Head injury when I was 20, had subdural hematoma, now 28 smell/taste is still not what it was but overall fully recovered great. Should I get a checkup with neuro even though I'm not having any issues? Only stayed 1 night in hospital and no seizures

Head injury when I was 20, had subdural hematoma, now 28 smell/taste is still not what it was but overall fully recovered great. Should I get a checkup with neuro even though I'm not having any issues? Only stayed 1 night in hospital and no seizures

Try zinc: Most common reason for this is that small nerves from the brain come through a bone with holes (Imagine a grater) at the top, of the nose (cribiform plate).

Cannot grow back. Zinc supplement trial in order. ...Read more
