Had a tbi 4 months ago and I lost my sense of smell and taste. Everything smells and tastes the same will it ever come back? Tips on recovering
Loss of Taste. Probably not. The sense of smell is carried through small fibers of the olfactory nerve that pass through the front base of the skull. These fibers are easily injured. The taste and smell work together. Unless you are taking a medication known to affect your taste the taste buds are probably working but you don't have the sense of smell. If it does not return by 6 months, then not.
