    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I lost my sense of taste and smell 4 years ago and have had multiple operations as well as daily flushed my nose with Pulmacort . My doctor at MG in Boston told me an allergy doctor told him he had some success with having the patient use 2 pulmacort respules mixed in the rinsing solution of distilled water, sea salt and bake soda. The difference is instead of simply using a syrenge over the sink and rinsing your nose you need to lay on a bed with your head hanging over the side and using a syringe fill each nostril with the solution above and let it sit for a few minutes. I tried this and can now taste and smell Alleluia ! It works try it. IF any questions I would be happy to answer them at rik1445@hotmail.com
