Hallo Twopie
Loss of smell can often be caused by infections, medications,chemicals,an injury to the head, diabetes, thyroid problems and often it returns to normal after a few weeks.
See http://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/bhcv2/bhcarticles.nsf/pages/Anosmia_loss_of_smell
There are brain diseases that can cause loss of smell so ask your doctor if he thinks you have any symptoms or signs that may suggest a cause in the brain.
