Why do I have problem in smelling things ?

I have a weird smell and taste thing going on. Not only do things smell weird thay also have a weird taste. This is all the time for the past three days. Originally it was noticed via smell, but then I noticed a taste associated with the smell. I'm 50 yo male I m 50 yo. When I smell things others are telling me smell good, they smell kinda burnt to me. Then I realized i also have a taste sensation the changes the way food tastes.

Hi Jon,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
You definitely need to consult a neurologist to find out the exact cause for your problem. This altered sense of taste and smell can be due to lesions in the brain. Also, get your pressure and sugar checked up.
Take care
