I was not born with a sense of smell and I can only taste bitter, sweet, spicy, and sour. I want to know why that is I went to a ENT doctor that was swamped with patients and didnt have time for me. He did a cat scan for my sensory plate and determined that it was hooked up correctly and wasnt damaged. So does anyone know whats wrong with me or if Id ever be able to gain a sense of smell? I can feel my nose hairs burn when there is an extreme chemical by it other then that i can be standing in a room that is cleared out by the extremly offensive oder and i wouldnt have a clue anything was there.
