Smell And Taste Disorder Caused by Head Trauma
Head trauma may cause Olfactory Synesthesia Syndrome, wherein one sense may be misperceived, such as seeing light spots before your eyes when you put gentle pressure directly to your eyelids. Addison's Disease, on the other hand, is a disorder you may have if you experience cluster headaches, migraines, and adrenal cortical insufficiency. Head trauma may also cause Anosmia, or the inability to smell.
