I had Covid 1 year ago to the day. I had a somewhat mild case with fatigue but not respiratory. I also had loss of taste and smell. I still have not regained my smell or taste and it is very depressing. I have a little taste, maybe 30% if that but hardly no smell. I can taste spicy stuff and smell household cleaners somewhat. Mostly though…..Nothing. Everything pretty much gives the same response, coffee, things that use to be foul smelling, etc. I hate it! Is there any long term relief to this that the Mayo Clinic has seen.

My wife also had it the same time but her symptoms were totally different and she ended up in the hospital cause of low sugar diabetic seizures that was brought about by diarrhea, etc. Looking for help here! Thanks.

Hi Jeff, you may wish to join the discussions with other long-haulers about recovery in the Post-COVID support group here: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/post-covid-recovery-covid-19/

You're quite right that everyone is different. Differences include what side effects people experience and the recovery process. In addition to the support group I linked above, you may wish to follow Mayo COVID recovery experts, advice and latest research in the Post-COVID Recovery expert blog with Dr. Van and others.
