I had suffered from pneomonia twice twice in two months. I lost my sense of smell soon after I'd recovered from pneomonia the second time back in February of 07'. My doctor talked me to wait for six to eight weeks but I am getting worry about it. I have never hear of someone losing the sense of smell as a result of pneomonia. Same is affecting my tongue. The tip of my tongue feels like burning all the time. It's the same feeling one gets when drinking hot coffee. what suggestion should I give to my doctor to check for. Your help and suggestions is much apprecieted. Thanks

  • I've heard zinc is good for loss of smell or taste. Good luck.

  • Consider a CT Scan to check for any kind of tumors that might be obstructing your nasal passages, or even interfering with the part of the brain that handles smell.
