Would you say you lost 100% sense of taste and smell or it was moderately suppressed or altered? How long did it last?

trying to see if this is just allergies or if I need to get tested..

I've heard it varies upon the individual.


Were it me, I would get tested just to rule it out and be safe.

Lost almost everything, can't remember if it was gradual or not.
When it came back it was weird for a long time. Some stuff tasted like dirt.

I will get tested as soon as I can given the holiday weekend.. my breakfast was unusually bland this morning but I wouldn’t say I lost my sense of smell and taste 100%, but rather experiencing impaired sense of smell and taste

I thought I had it when I lost taste and smell a few months back. But it was severe congestion and nothing more. I tested negative.
