I have had the same problem for the past 2 years. I had a bad virus and it killed the nerves for the sense of taste and smell. It is called ANOSMIS. It is very rare that these senses come back.

I went on line and looked up'anosmis" and they mention smell but said nothing about taste.Do you think I still have hope? Ihad a stroke two months ago and I have been tasteless since.All I can taste is sweet and sourer

Ususally when you can't smell you can't taste either. I can only taste sweet and sour too.

Do you still have your sense of "smell"???

Has your doctor said anything about it coming back, since you had a stroke maybe it is just a matter of time and it will come back.

Do you have silver fillings in your teeth. If so they will release mercury and mercury will destroy nerve cells.

Since I have lost my sense of smell and taste I only eat foods that I remember the taste of, that seems to help me.

RE: lost of taste

lost my very acute sense of smell after fall to back of skull/concussion (oddly, 'taste' ok!). Dr. had me try zinc & vit. B injections. For whatever reason, I now most of it has come back but not nearly as good as before. I believe 'taste' is the term for sweet,sour, bitter (& another that escapes me ... ? salty) on our tongue & I never lost that but yes, flavor which I think is a combination of taste & smell was lost for me during that time. Can you smell things ok yet though? We don't realize how precious these things are until we lose them!
