Loss Of Smell

Is supposedly one of the first indicators. But I've been using so many cleaning products that my whole head is fucked up. How do you tell the difference between the inability to smell from Rapid Onset Bleach Exposure and COVID?

Loss of smell may be an early indicator of dementia.

And taste. If you are also not tasting or smelling anything.

Oh no, you mixed Ammonia with bleach without realizing it. I'm afraid you have about 5 hours to live.

I have a drive-thru testing station in my crotch.

r3, I'm the one who burned *holes in my hands* by spraying them with nearly pure rubbing alcohol; clearly I need some fucking help here!

r2, well, I also polished off most of a bottle of Scotch, while chain smoking, so...I mean...I can still see and hear and mostly feel things.

OP rub a little bit of shit on the end of your nose and breathe that for a while. I don't know if this will help with the problem but I just wanted you to do it.

Some people have had it as a symptom but it's down on the list around 5%. Stomach upset is higher up on the list.

R8 like diarrhea/vomitting/nausea or just an achy stomach? Be specific.

I got sick starting in early February, and am now mostly better. My only remaining symptoms are dehydration, nasal congestion, and the not-yet-complete return of my senses of smell and taste. Since I did not have the "no mucus" feature, I don't think I had corona virus. Also, my doctor, whom I saw twice, and spoke with or wrote to numerous times, told me I didn't have it.

Porn star James Dern said lack of an erection - impotence- is one symptom. True or false?

I'm 67 and started losing my sense of smell and taste about five years ago.

So we need to sort out the people who don’t smell very good….

So you get one of the strains of Covid-19? What can you do but ride it out? Go to the hospital if you can't breathe.

r13 Cheryl does not smell good; we need to "sort out" the people who don't smell [italic]well.[/italic]

I heard owls have almost no sense of smell, which is why they are the leading predator of skunks.

Don't worry OP you still smell, you didn't lose yer stank

by Anonymousreply 17Last Friday at 6:09 PM

OP, you get the most FOUL smelling gas of all time with COVID, and you get more loose stools than diarrhea, with urgency to poo. Poo will be foul smelling too. Also very common is stomach makes very loud rumbling sounds and heartburn/stomach starts producing tons of acid. I had bad nausea but not all people get this. I also got pancreatitis, but that came a couple weeks in.

Even if you can't smell your farts/poo, you will definitely be hearing crazy stomach noises.

by Anonymousreply 18Last Friday at 6:20 PM

Grrrl, lay off the bleach.

by Anonymousreply 19Last Friday at 6:58 PM

It's okay, OP.

We smell you.

You're fine.

Well, except for the smell.

by Anonymousreply 20Last Friday at 7:19 PM

r18, is that true? I had such bad stomach issues in late February, early March that I was told I had IBS, an ulcer and Diverticulitis. it went on for weeks, maybe even a month. my stomach is fine now. I didn't have a cough at the time though.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
