It's thought that roughly one in 20 people who have Covid end up with parosmia, and though some have already recovered, others are still waiting, up to 10 months later.
Some readers got in touch to tell us, in about 100 words, what flavours and aromas they miss most.
Back in November I realised my chicken pasta tasted like washing-up liquid. I haven't eaten meat since - mac and cheese, green grapes and baby rusks have become my staples.
I don't know whether I will ever be able to enjoy a Nando's medium-spiced chicken butterfly again as now it smells and tastes foul, like something alien. I have struggled to come to terms with this.
If my smell goes back to normal, I'll never ever take a Nando's with friends for granted again.
