Are Your Sinus Problems Causing You To Lose Your Sense of Smell or Taste?

Those that suffer from effects of nasal polyps and congestion learn to endure the associated discomforts. Along with the obvious hurdles they may face such as nasal blockage, sinus pressure or nasal drip, other common side effects may include the loss of smell and taste.

Why Your Sense of Smell/Taste is Affected

The effects of nasal congestion can have various outcomes for its sufferers, two of the most common being a loss of smell (Anosmia) and a loss of taste (Ageusia).

The loss of smell, often times, isn’t serious, but it can sometimes be a sign of a nervous system (neurological) condition. Anosmia can be caused by temporary or permanent irritation or destruction of the mucous membranes lining the inside of your nose. This can be caused by:

  •     Acute sinusitis (sinus infection)
  •     Common cold
  •     Hay fever (allergic rhinitis)
  •     Influenza (flu)
  •     Nonallergic rhinitis (chronic congestion or sneezing not related to allergies)

The sense of smell also enhances your ability to taste. Many people who lose their sense of smell also complain that they lose their sense of taste. Most can still tell between salty, sweet, sour, and bitter, but cannot distinguish between other flavors.
