To those of you who lost the ability to smell and taste when infected by Covid - how long time did it take for you to get it back? It has been three days for me now, but already starting to lose patience

Is losing patience also a symptom?


I lost my sense of smell completely for a week, then it came back again within a week. I started taking lots of vitamins including zinc every day around the same time as I was barely able to start smelling again (like, I could smell a faint whif of coffee beans and some candles but nothing else) and I think that’s part of the reason why my sense of smell came back so quickly. Definitely get some zinc if you can!


Second the zinc!


About 2 weeks for me


My best friend just recovered from COVID. She gained back her ability to taste within a few days, but her ability to smell did not fully return for 3 weeks. She joked she actually liked it, especially when picking up her dog's poop.

Since October and currently at about 50% on both with unpleasant distortions.

Wow. Good luck to you

About 3 months for me

Took about 3-5 days for me

I just lost taste not smell. Lasted about 2 weeks

About 1.5 weeks for me although my sense of smell came back kind of distorted (e.g my perfume which I use every day seemed strange) It took at least a month for my sense of smell to be completely back to normal.

I had it in March and I still don't think I'm 100% where I was before

3 months

Boyfriend got it back in 5 days.
