I had Covid in August 2021. I still have no sense of smell and my sense of taste is completely distorted. Everything taste like I'm eating/drinking liquid metal. Any tips/ideas to get it back.

I know a few people suffering from long Covid who had luck with craniosacral therapy. I don’t really know what it is but my friend did a lot of research and apparently that is helping some people with your symptoms. I think my friend also looked into acupuncture? I just looked up craniosacral therapy and it says online that it’s a pseudoscience but that’s the only thing my friend found to help her with her Covid induced dizziness and mental fogginess and loss of taste (she’s also had severe concussions in the past so i think that was making her symptoms worse)

Hey there ! I have the same issues, only I smell rotting flesh lol. Some people have told me to take

Zinc,

I'm still working on it but I've noticed the zinc helps with the smell distortion. Good luck !

also had this problem pretty bad (got covid in march 2021, taste/smell started distorting after first vaccine shot in june 2021) and it's finally getting a lot better. i started taking 60mg of zinc every day in...november? and still take it now. no idea if that or just the healing over time has helped, but i had no improvements for a long time and now am finally most of the way back to normal. also read about alpha lipoic acid helping. i took two tablets of that (unsure of doseage) every day for two months but didn't start again after my jar ran out. didn't have any adverse effects so it's worth trying.

Thumbs up 👍 on zinc. Helped me too

Is this normal? (31f) for the past two summers or so my legs swell (and only when it hits above 75 degrees that day). Afternoons and nights are the worst. My doctor shrugged it off saying it’s sodium intake, despite my blood levels of sodium being completely normal and cardio 3x a week to sweat it out. I still changed diet for a few weeks and it had no impact, still swelling. My female friends mention their leg swelling in passing but it seems to bother me a lot more. Anyone have thoughts?
