Sense of smell & taste affected......

#1
I cant seem to find any threads or posts on here where other people have had their sense of smell or taste affected by CD but I am only on day 3 and already the smell of some normal food is turning my stomach???
Anyone else had the same?:newbie:

I find my sense of smell and taste is a lot sharper than it was, and I can smell food and drink a lot more than I used to, for example its someone birthday in the office so they put a load of pasties in the kitchen, and even though my office is over the other side of the building I smelt them long before I got the e-mail!

When I went into the kitchen for some water, I could smell them even more powerfully, and surprisingly (as I love pasties), whilst I enjoyed the smell, the thought of eating one didn't thrill me, in fact it turned my stomach a bit.

Its not so much the smell of food that is turning my stomach but the small of it on other peoples breath!!! Garlic never used to bother me probably cos I was eating it too. Now....... yuck. I even have to keep my poor kids at arms length. At the beginning of this diet I woke up in the middle of the night and the smell in the room was dreadful. I had to rub some germolene into my hands..... it was the first thing I could find in the bathroom cupboard...... so that I had something else to smell!!

Thanks for the reply Sack the Juggler!
I was washing up last night from families dinner and one had had Ravioli which I normally love but honestly the smell was making me want to gag! and I totally agree about being able to smell a mile off! (not sure how new that is to me though cos I am now thinking thats why I got fat in the first place because I could smell what other people had and that started the dreaded cravings! Which I always gave in to!!!) x

My sense of smell is a lot sharper and things taste very different! I guess that's what CD does to you.

Food didn't make me feel sickish though.. hope that passes for you hon xxx

I have a super-sensitive sense of smell on a normal day, but I've noticed that since I started CD that I'm smelling things even more than before, and that my sense of taste is changing as well.
