Anosmia.
 
Well 2 mondays ago i was longboarding (form of skateboarding) and as i was going down a hill and went to turm, i hit a patch of sand, slid offy board and hit the ground with the back of my head.. Now i dont remember that but thats what i was told.. All i remember was waking up in an ambulance, then once again in the hospital..after a ct scan, the doctor told me my skull was fractured, i had a concussion and there was small bleeding in my skull (but not my brain) so I spent a night in the hospital then went home the following day.. When i was home everything made me dizzy and nauseaous.. So i spent the day sleeping and puking.. The next day i went back to the hospital due to dehydration ( anything i ate or drank i would instantly vomit up) and got some IV and new medication. I returned home again and slept through most of the days for about a week. Eventually i was getting better but when i went to eat i wasnt able to taste anything... Its been almost 2 weeks now and ive noticed i cant smell either. The only smell is like burning or smoke..


All i know is that this sucks and as i found on google anosmia (loss of smell or taste) is pretty common with a hit to the back of the head. I go to the neurologist soon so im going to talk to him.. If my olfactory glands are still intact and not damaged, i think ill be sble to recover my lost senses..

This is familiar to what happened to me last summer. July 10 I believe. I was drinking a lot of water one night and cleaning my room at the same time. I wasn't eating much and I was trying to clean out my system. But at the time I didn't know I was flushing out electrolites as well. When those levels got too low, I went down and smacked my head on the bed post. I woke up in an ambulance just like you, forehead all bloody and bruises under my eye. Everything pretty much healed up now. It still hurts to touch though.

I hope it all goes well and you recover. My scars healed up within a week.

Yeah it was pretty crazy, i was just skateboarding and next thing i was in an ambulance with blood all over my face.. Thinking what the hell happened... But apparently i was able to tell them where i lived, but didnt know what day it was.... Pretty scary stuff. Im pretty much fully recovered except for a few minor headaches and the smell taste thing.

I've hit my head pretty bad snowboarding a few times. It hurts pretty bad. I wear a helmet when I board though so I haven't had any serious head injuries. Anyway, I hope you get your senses back. Then maybe you can do some real skateboarding. None of the mongo-pushing longboard crap :P

You don't need to push mongo on a longboard.

exactly.. ****ing apec nines and orangutang wheels.. all you do is coast.. i was going so damn fast i hit my head and bounced back up off the pavement.


oh and update on this thread..
taste is sorta back.. some **** just tastes bland... the sensory organ that was damaged could help me taste more complex tastes while the tongue is only basic.

so without the sensory bulb i only rely on my tongue for taste which only tastes sour sweet salty and bitter.

fucking smell just isnt there though.. i check on it daily, smelling coffee, pickles, deoderant, pepper, and all that ****... just nothing..
