    What caused it?

    @itsme: I really don't know. I can smell a tiny bit if the odor is really pungent but one of my brothers has no sense of smell. Other than that, we're almost normal. :o)

    allergy or bad cold.

    Can you tell us a little about yourself? Age? Gender? Recent illnesses? Any meds you might be on? Do you use drugs? What kinds of foods do you eat? 

    Something to see the doctor about. If you can’t smell, you can’t taste. Right? That would be difficult. Good luck finding out.

    I know most people think you must be able to smell to taste but that's not completely true. The sense of smell just adds to the sense of taste.

    Thank you, Flip.
