Letter: In Brief
Thursday 19 November 1998
I am aged 66 and for the past six years I have lost all sense of taste and smell.
It is indeed dangerous. I have had to give up cooking with gas because I cannot tell if the gas has been left on. Dishes have to be watched all the time for signs of burning. I no longer enjoy food or drink.
The neurologist I saw trivialised the problem, asking what I was "worried about", not seeming to realise the difficulties.
