Sore mouth from?: This would have to be personally seen by a dentist or physician in order to try to diagnose the problem. With the limited information you posted, it would be impossible to determine what the problem is. Sorry.

I bumped my head this morning and a few hours later I realized I can`t smell or taste anything--are the events related?

Stuffed up nose: More common reason is probably stuffed up nose. Like when you catch a cold and you can not taste or smell food. Other less likely explanation can be damage to cribriform plate, a bony structure that nerves responsible for your sense of smell runs through may explain this. Sense of smell is significantly important in tasting. However the blow needs to be quite significant to cause this.

If you fall and hit your head and lose your taste and smell, will you recover?

If you fall and hit your head and lose your taste and smell, will you recover?

Possibly: This usually is due to contusion vs shearing of the nerves for these sensations. Contusion can usually recover, but shearing (cutting) will lower that chance. So hope for the best and maybe you will get some if not full recovery.

This is going to sound weird, but I noticed that my husbands skin tastes funny- like a chemical-very bitter. What could be wrong with him?

Don't know: Hopefully you're not eating your husband. The taste could be related to food or medication, but can also occur with renal or hepatic disease. If you're really concerned, get him checked out at his doctor's office.

What to do if I could not smell or taste due to a head injury is there a name for this condition y?

What to do if I could not smell or taste due to a head injury is there a name for this condition y?

Ansomia: This is common after even a relatively mild head injury & is related to disruption of the olfactory nerves (the sense of smell nerves). They are easily damaged as they pass through the base of the skull between the eyes. Unfortunately, recovery from this is rare. Other than not being able to smell smoke, the condition is not dangerous. Taste is involved because much of your taste is assoc w/ smell

Spit first: Wash your mouth out. If you purchased it to rub on your face and a small tastable amount got into your mouth, it should not kill you. If it were so toxic, someone else would have already succommed. You should be fine.

Bad taste in mouth when turning head to the left?

Bad taste in mouth when turning head to the left?

Infection: This may be a sign that you have an infection and when you turn your head to the left it forces some drainage from the area. You should see your dentist or oral surgeon to have this evaluated.

My nose started dripping clear, no smell but taste salty, I never injured my head?

My nose started dripping clear, no smell but taste salty, I never injured my head?

See an ENT: It could be nothing but as you are alluding to, clear salty fluid coming from the nose is concerning for spinal fluid. If you have enough coming out, I would get a sealable small clean dry and catch as many drops as you can so they can run a beta-2-transferrin test on it. You will need about 1/2 a teaspoon worth of fluid to test it. Of course it could just be allergies or a cold!

Mysister25.Nogenetic for mri. She does not feel taste for 1 week. And loosebalancenot seriously. She didmri for head report mention ms. Isms curable?

Mysister25.Nogenetic for mri. She does not feel taste for 1 week. And loosebalancenot seriously. She didmri for head report mention ms. Isms curable?

Current state: Am concerned that she may well have MS, and if so, needs immediate initiation of a disease modifying agent. MS is not curable but is definitely controllable in most cases if potent medication and treatment is used. Delays can result in unsatisfactory outcomes.

After having surgery to get a cyst out of my head I cant taste any type of food or drink. Also it makes me sick whenever I eat. What do I do to fix it?

After having surgery to get a cyst out of my head I cant taste any type of food or drink. Also it makes me sick whenever I eat. What do I do to fix it?

Could be serious: Did you have surgery involving the brain? If so you may have normal post-operative swelling causing these symptoms. But any complications of brain surgery are potentially very serious and life-threatening and you should let your surgeon know right away or go to an ER to check if these symptoms are normal after your particular surgery.

I was eating skittles earlier, and now I have an odd taste in my mouth, and it kind of feels like an extra layer of skin in my mouth.

Junk Food: Candy and other junk foods are loaded w/chemicals and sugar that the body does not recognize. If this persists please see your doctor. Peace and good health. Dark chocolate (80% or more) is a better choice.

Lost all sense of smell and taste overnight last week. I only sense texture. History: had a head cold and used nostrilla. Toxic exposure at wtc for 120 days.

Anosmia: With sudden loss of the sense of smell, I would have you see an ENT quickly as there can be treatments which might help. A viral nerve infection can cause this, and there are medications which can sometimes help. Feel better!
