My mother has had problems with her sense of smell for the past month and wanted a second opinion on these symptoms. If anyone might have an idea, let me know. Also, if any more info can be helpful, I can give it Symptoms ----------- Complete loss of sense of smell Stuffy nose Mucus from nose is yellowish-green, very thick Family doctor originally she might have a sinus infection, but after taking antibiotics, the symptoms didn't go away. Allergy pills also did not work. Her doctor now thinks it might be damage to the nerve itself and that the loss of smell might be permanent. She is a 55 yo female. No injuries to head or anything like that, and she doesn't generally have allergies this strong if at all. Anyone have any ideas on what this could be?
