    My smell is ZERO.
    I ate a piece of country ham and couldn’t taste the salt and my wife said it was really salty. Only thing I can taste is Starburst candy; go figure.

    I can drink vinegar like water if i want. Im 4 weeks total now since I had the positive test. Lost 16lbs in 8 days and ended upon IV bags in the hospital. I couldnt keep anything in my system water, food, whatever it was in and then I puked. As of now my taste is still almost non existent. Got lucky with no lung issues though.

    Taste seems normal but smell is still off 7 months later. That’s the only 2 symptoms I had.

    I have a number of things that are still way off of normal but the most noticeable one is onions.

    They taste different but itís mostly the smell. If thereís onions in something itís literally the only thing I can smell. Itís overpowering. If someone is cutting onions I can smell it from the other side of the room. Restaurants, sub shops, etc the only thing I can smell is onions
    I have a co-worker who says the exact same thing as you.

    Just had my one year anniversary with it. I never lost either of the senses. I had what I would call a mild experience. 101.5 for a day, then less. Drainage and cough. That was it. I, like Mr Perry mentioned, have changed what I crave. Mexican and Chinese were staples, now I could not care if I have them. I did develop an allergy to all things peanut. By far the worst thing from this has been attention span degradation. I mentioned it to my GP and he said that was a factor.

    I really don't think I had any issues with taste or smell...I have lost some hair though and hair loss isn't hereditary in my family....I Googled it and I guess hair loss after covid is common in both men and women...Weird thing is I didn't start losing it until a couple of months after the disease..

    I had it last August. Taste and smell never fully recovered. I’m probably about 75% recovered. I kinda doubt that it will ever get back to normal.

    I tested positive Aug. 1st. Couldn't smell a dead skunk in the middle of the road for 3 weeks or so. I think smell is pretty well back. Never totally lost taste. Was super sensitive to salt taste. Could differentiate between savory and sweet but everything tasted pretty much the same. I think taste is pretty much normal now.

    I never lost my sense of taste and smell was only reduced for a few days before it returned. I was fortunate as Covid was trivial for me and not a big deal at all. The two shot Moderna vaccine protocol on the other hand was very unpleasant.

    came down with it late monday night with just fever. Next 3 days low grade fever and some coughing. Took my wife to get tested yesterday and she's negative . I never had any other symptoms or loss of appetite, smell or taste. Been dosing with vitamins for months and started hcq and iver on sunday when I found out I was exposed. Fever has been gone all day today and feel pretty close to normal.

    Stay on top of it. It can turn ugly quick on days 7-10.

    I wish you and yours a quick and safe recovery.

    Another negative test result (I'm about 99.9% sure it was a false negative) on day 5, post-exposure. The "feeling like crap" began in earnest that morning.

    Finally tested positive on day 7. Even at that late stage, I was allowed to have a monoclonal antibody (BAM) infusion and it made a significant difference for me within 24-36 hours.

    While it was surely unpleasant and I don't wish to ever contract it again; I will say that covid was nowhere near as bad as the influenza I had 2 years prior.

    ***Disclaimer*** That is simply MY experience with the virus; your mileage may (and likely will) vary.
    Same here. I've had the flu absolutely knock me on my rump compared to covid. As far as taste and smell goes, I did lose both for about 2-3 weeks, but not completely. Some things like most fruits tasted almost the same and that is about all I ate for that time span. I am very grateful and fortunate to have recovered so quickly. And before anyone asks, I did test positive and ran a fever of 103 several times during my illness. I was out of work for two weeks. I was running a chainsaw and working clearing a building site on the first week of my return to work. That'll get some air flowing into the old lungs!

    No. I was diagnosed on April 1st. My only symptoms were loss of taste and smell and Iím still not 100% with either. Sucks but it is what it is. I chew Copenhagen wintergreen and it smells like the smoke from my smoker to me. Weird
