I had a cold that started 2 1/2 weeks ago..the cold went away after about a week, but my smell and taste were still gone. My smell has come back about 50%, but I only taste strong ingredients. I ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich today and it tasted like..well...nothing. I can smell foods, but once I try to eat them..nada. I do have one ear that is stopped which I'm told is normal after a cold, so I'm hoping that's the connection. I'm taking sudafed until the ear gets better, but worried about my taste. At what point should I talk to a doctor. If I can't taste in a couple days, that will be 3 weeks! gaaah! Anyone? :/
