Altered sense of smell?

Hello all,

Has anyone experienced altered sense of smell as part of their MS?


Before I knew I had MS or had any symptoms I had a strange time when I could smell something that was not there.

I have just lost my mum so put it down to grief/stress etc.
I smell come back when I had covid and after covid jabs.

still not sure if related to MS

That’s very strange. Bodies do strange things!!

This is an old study, but might help.
