Loss Of Smell

Upper respiratory diseases, such as the common cold or flu, are known to impair our sensations of smell and taste. In fact, it’s believed that over 60% of colds and sinus infections result in a temporary loss of scent. Your senses of taste and smell are inextricably intertwined.


You’ll have a severe and persistent ache in your cheekbones, forehead, or nasal bridge. When you move your head rapidly or strain, the discomfort typically increases worse. You may also have additional sinus symptoms, such as:


  1. Fever
  2. Your face is swollen.
  3. A runny nose
  4. In your ears, there is a sense of fullness.
