Loss of Smell

A loss of smell is associated with several conditions. However, with early Parkinson's disease, the symptom may be more subtle. Rather than not smelling anything, people with the disease may have trouble smelling certain foods with distinctive and strong aromas, such as dill pickles, licorice or bananas.

Individuals who notice a loss of smell and haven't had a recent cold or flu should schedule an appointment with their primary care physician.
