    Allright, this is kinda weird...

    The last few days, my nose has been kinda stuffing up... Well i wake up this morning, my nose is stuffed as usual... I take a shower, and it goes away, but when i get dressed and apply my cologne, i realize I CANT SMELL IT!

    I sniffed everything, and nothing! Well, i wait like 15 minutes it comes back... and all is fine..

    Until just a few minutes ago, i was surfing the web, my nose stuffs up, i get up, i breathe normally again, however as I eat my dinner, i find i cant taste it! I smell it, NOTHING... I smell some red wine vinegar, soy sauce, NOHTING...

    I dont think its TOO serious, itll probably come back soon.. but its weird having no sense of smell...

    Pinch your nostrils and push your belly button three times. That oughta reset it.

    Hey Nick, aren't you using one of those steroid nasal sprays? If so, they're not working. [​IMG]

    Look for silica packets up your nostrils!

    Have you been eating too much college cafeteria food? I've heard that the lose of sense of smell is the body's natural defense against putrid food..

    First, sense of smell and then taste, next to go is eyesight...

    I'll ship you a pair of my gym socks for the ULTIMATE smelling test. If you can't smell those, you really have lost your sense of smell... or heartbeat. [​IMG]

    Well now, I can put my dedication to being a fan of Scrubs to good use, now I am not a Doctor, but I watch people that play ones on TV, you may have Anosmia.

    There was an episode where JD treated someone with some antibiotics and the patient lost his sense of smell.

    This page has some info that may be of help.

    Remember, I am not a doctor, but I watch people that play doctors on TV. [​IMG]

    Well, one thing's for certain, he's not going blind. At least he doesn't have that problem. [​IMG]

    This sort of thing really happens. My mother is losing her sense of smell, so her cooking (which was really top-notch) is now a little touch and go, since she has to guesstimate a lot. The quacks say its something to do with the nerves to/from the nose, which I guess are degenerating.

    But my mother's a lot older than you Nick, so if it persists, you really should see a doctor.
