RA/Methotrexate/Immune Compromised and Sense of Smell and Taste


Has anyone else experienced reduction in smell and taste due to Covid and wondered if recovery is hindered by having RA and all that goes with it?

Many thanks

    Hello @MoiraA and welcome to the online community,

    I understand that you have RA and have experienced a loss of sense of smell and taste due to Covid. You're wondering if your recovery is being hindered by having RA and all that goes with it.

    All our members have experienced arthritis and many have also had Covid. I can't find any discussions on the forums about recovering taste and smell, and it will be interesting to hear from other members who may have experienced this. It's true that RA, medications and Covid all have very different effects on people.

    If you want to read more about arthritis and Covid, Versus Arthritis have a useful guide that's regularly updated. I've linked to it below:

    Do have a look round the forum and join in any conversations where you feel comfortable.

    Best wishes,

    Anna (Mod)
