Hi doctor,

I have been having some sudden health issues. I got dry flu. And I lost my sense of smell and taste. And I went to the hospital for a COVID test, and my COVID test reports were negative. Now I cannot feel any smell or taste, including my other senses are lost like now in winter I cannot feel cold on my body properly I cannot feel the heat of my body as well. I can feel hungry, but I cannot feel the thirst for water.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read your concern in detail and will surely help you out.

Loss of taste and smell is not necessarily due to COVID. It can be due to a blocked nose, sinusitis, and diabetes. Let me assure you that this is not something that cannot be cured. I suggest starting treatment for sinusitis and getting your blood sugar levels tested. Once you get the results, you can discuss them with me or your local physician for further treatment. With the right diagnosis and treatment, you will be perfectly fine.

I hope this helps.

Kindly revert in case of further queries.

Thank you.
