My sense of smell has never been great, but a complete lack of ability to experience odor is simply an accepted part of my life. It's been more than 5 years, and a sinus operation. There was an improvement while on plaquenil! A brief, albeit odd, version of the smell of coffee. Delicious. Lemon. Some perfumes. Some flowers. All of them faint, but so much better than nothing. And finally this disease worked in my favor... I simply don't smell the less pleasant smells of life. Such as doggy diarrhea or cat litter. Skunks on highway go completely unnoticed. However, my new found slight ability to smell some things is fading. I wonder if the plaquenil is finally clearing completely from my system.
What are others experiences with their sense of smell?
Hope all are well. Would like to begin a dialogue with people, to feel like more of the community.
