Hi, just wondering if any other hypos have noticed this. I had no sense of smell for about 2 years now, to begin with it seemed to come and go.
I'm not too bothered by it, in the grand scheme of things, partly I think due to priorotising as I have felt so poorly in other ways. My sense of taste is still seems to be there and I enjoy food. (I do like strong flavours eg mustard, chilli, ginger).
I've found a couple of articles relating loss of sense of smell to hypo but always thought mine was due to smoking. I now smoke e cigs ,still no sense of smell. My doctor nodded when I suggested smoking as a reason..
When googling , I discovered that my local hospital i the only one in the UK to have a "smell" clinic.Seems a strange use of NHS money though. I can understand it if taste is affected.
My thoughts are why should hypo affect sense of smell? If it does. Smell is more brain orientated. Plus why is smell important? Would be lovely to have it... But a clinic? Could shed some light on workings of hypo.
