Sydney mum Chloe Donovan hit her head, now can’t smell or taste anything

Chloe’s head bump had unexpected consequences.

Here, Chloe Donovan, 31, from Botany, NSW, shares her story.

Taking a bite of a cheese toastie, I frowned. I couldn’t taste it.

I can’t be hungry, I thought, sitting in my hospital bed. I’d fainted at work and fallen back on concrete, splitting open my head.

My colleagues called the ambulance, and I’d been given stitches.

Back home the same day, I couldn’t smell the soap or shampoo in the shower. Brushing my teeth, I couldn’t taste the toothpaste.

I can’t smell anything, I realised, shocked.

And, I couldn’t taste anything, either.
