Lost my sense of taste and smell.....

 About a week ago, things started to taste funny.

In the last 2 days I realized I can not smell or taste ANYTHING...

Everything tastes like well nothing....Hell just to prove it to myself, I ate a Mango tonight it didn't have a taste...I HATE THE TASTE OF MANGO'S!!!

I ran a bottle of alcohol under my nose, nothing, same with a Jar of Vicks Vapor rub, no smell at all.

I don't have a headache or stuffy nose, no allergies. Nothing That could explain it. I just completely lost my sense of taste and smell.

 

I called my Dr (who sucks by the way, but its rare I see a DR) and they can't get me in for 2 weeks.

 

Should I go to the Urgent Care? Or just wait....Any Idea what It might be? Has this happened to anyone else?

It's likely a neuro thing. I would do er over urgent car if you don't feel able to wait. (Which I understand)

I'd be calling around to different doctors to see if there are any other openings anywhere. It would really bug the crap out of me to not know what's going on and have to wait that long to find out. I wouldn't go to urgent care but I'd find someplace that had an opening tomorrow.

 I guess I could head to the ER. But I don't feel bad at all....Just can't smell or taste anything. Just doesn't seem like a ER worthy thing.

Go anyway. This may be a neurological event. Please just go.

It could be any number of things including a brain tumor. I wouldn't wait for 2 weeks and if your doctor is that crappy I'd get a different one.
