I’ve lost my sense of smell

Along with my appetite.

No other symptoms. I had a test a few weeks back (NHS worker) and it was negative. But that was before my loss of smell. Literally no other symptoms .... what do you reckon?

It’s possible you have it. Swabs of people infected with covid in the UK show that something like 70% are asymptomatic shock

Self-isolate and book a test. Hope you feel better soon!

Yes, it's on the list of symptoms to need to self isolate and book a test for.

I completely lost mine back in March with no other symptoms. I literally couldn’t smell a thing, even the strongest most potent things I could find around the house. I’ve wondered ever since if that was it. Keep us posted on how your test goes.

The guidance has been for some time that you take a test for any symptoms, I'm slightly surprised that as an NHS worker you need to ask.
