For a few months now my sensitivity to smell as spiked to the point of nausea, why?
Do you have heart problems? A history of stroke or some other reason to suspect a stroke? Do some research on strokes. The two major types are hemorragic and embolic. Embolic strokes are the most common and occur in older folks, people who have heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, high cholestrol, obesity or certain autoimmune diseases are more at risk for these strokes. Hemorrahgic strokes can occur from brain aneurrysms or blood vessel bursting from hypertension.
Your symptoms of altered smell in the nose could be due to sinus infections. They are due to stasis and infection of the sinus cavities, and the resultant drainage into the nose causes the smell. Facial pain, fever and nasal discharge are the other symptoms of sinusitis. It could also be olfactory hallucinations or Phantosmia, which most often occurs as a result of a head injury or upper respiratory infection.
Hello and hope you are doing well. Your symptoms of altered smell in the nose could be due to sinus infections. They are due to stasis and infection of the sinus cavities, and the resultant drainage into the nose causes the bad smell. Facial pain, fever and nasal discharge are the other symptoms of sinusitis. It could also be olfactory hallucinations. Phantosmia most often occurs as a result of a head injury or upper respiratory infection.
I constantly smell gas fumes or diesel. It drives me crazy. No one else at home smells it. I smell it at home, work, and it really drives me crazy when I trying to go to sleep. Please somebody tell me why this is.
Hi, Any infection or blockage in your nose can cause you to smell something that is not there. Your symptoms could be due to olfactory hallucinations. Phantosmia most often occurs as a result of a head injury or upper respiratory infection. It can also be caused by temporal lobe seizures, sinusitis, brain tumors, migraine, Parkinson's disease and stroke. You may need proper evaluation by your GP, please consult him for a neurological assessment. He may then refer you to a neurologist if needed.
I have been experiencing for about 3 years now a metallic smell in my nose. It comes and goes. I have been to Ear,Nose and Throat doctor and he cannot find anything. I have been to an allergist and he comes up with nothing. My primary physician tells me to use the netti-pot to flush out my sinus'- no good either. There are times when I get thi ssmell and then a day might pass and I get a severe migraine. I also get nausea from this smell .

For several months now I have had a constant sweet smell and taste in my nose and mouth. I consulted the doctor and had all the blood tests required for diabetes etc. All the tests came back normal. The doctor said that it could be a sinus infection, and all he could do is prescribe an anti-biotic. Can anyone shine any light on my problem ?.
Phantosmia is an olfactory hallucination: perception of smell without an odor present. These imaginary smells can range from unpleasant to enjoyable. Causes include brain injury or seizures in the temporal lobe, various neurological disorders, overactive olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs), or the loss of inhibitory neurons brought on by a sinus infection or some other type of head cold. I had a bout of phantosmia, in my case it was an electrical burning type smell, that lasted for a few days.
I could smell a horrible musty odor and made it hard for me to breathe like heavy air. Ever since I have constant bad smells. And even smokey odors in my house. No one else smells it and usually it is in my own home. At times it's like chemicals too. My husband thinks I am nuts. What is causing me to be so sensitive to lots of odors????? Even feel like I am tasting chemicals and breathing smoke very heavily. Very upsetting. Dr checked out my sinus..nothing.
Stroke symptoms that "progress" are often due to a slow bleed. Often due to coumadin. Test for her sensitivity to sunlight, which is a hallmark of such a bleed. Try and see what nutrients she gets at night on the peg and the quantity. Be prepared to be ignored in this request. Ask to see her feeding log. And try to find out what PEG device was utilized. There are different ones. Some use an inflatable balloon that is a little too big for the stomach.
i can only smell it, it's like amonia, and musty had it for about a month, after i had a bad cold, it get's stronger as the day goes by, but there is no pain in the sinuses
Its unlikely that foul smelling stools are causing the constant bad smell in the nose. Your symptoms could be due to olfactory hallucinations. Phantosmia most often occurs as a result of a head injury or upper respiratory infection. It can also be caused by temporal lobe seizures, sinusitis, brain tumors, migraine, Parkinson's disease and stroke. You may need proper evaluation by your GP, please consult him for a neurological assessment. He may then refer you to a neurologist if needed.
Hello and hope you are doing well. Your symptoms of bad foul smell in the nose could be due to sinus infections. They are due to stasis and infection of the sinus cavities, and the resultant drainage into the nose causes the bad smell. Facial pain, fever and nasal discharge are the other symptoms of sinusitis. You will need to consult your primary care physician for proper assessment. In the meantime practice good breathing exercises, humidify your room and do steam inhalations.
It can also be caused by temporal lobe seizures, sinusitis, brain tumors, migraine, Parkinson's disease and stroke. If your symptoms persist, please consult your GP for a neurological assessment. He may then refer you to a neurologist if needed. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
For the past six months, on and off I will smell burning hair for about a minute. It's happened about 5 or 6 times in total. When this happens, no one else around me smells it. I'm hesitant to think it's an oncoming stroke or anything of that sort because I'm only 30 years old and in excellent health otherwise. Any ideas? I've made an appointment with a neurologist but thought I'd post and hopefully get some alternate feedback. It's making me a bit anxious.
I had a stroke Oct 13,2008. I was 37 yrs old, healthy school bus driver who had a physical every year. The only time I was ever in a hospital was each time I gave birth, and I have 5 children.No complications giving birth. Never had high blood pressure.Until the day I had my stroke.
I have gradually lost my sense of smell over the past several years until I have nothing at all now. How do I cope with this? I'm now losing my sense of taste as well it's making me nuts because it is in a small sense affecting my job. I would also like some help with stopping smoking as I just watched my Dad pass away from a major stroke after 3 heart attacks need some encouragement.
I could smell the good hot water smell whole day. I thought my body absorbed the water smell and release it again. or my nose just contains the smell in nasal passage. or my brain is kidding with me. other day, I was standing close to some alcoholic man. His stench was terrible. about half an hour he left, but I could smell the stench the whole day. I couldn't tell if others could smell it too or it was just me. Today, I went to public bathroom.
Oookay, so, it's a little strange, really, because I've gotten this quite a few times over the last few years, and it usually lasts a week, sometimes less, but it's never been this strong. When I breathe in and ESPECIALLY when I breathe out I can smell gasoline, but it smells a little sweeter... It's weird and it annoys me and is distracting me from my work.
Does anyone else experience "phantom smells"? I smell cigarette smoke on and off (no one around me or in my home/work place smokes). It's not all the time, but sometimes it's very strong. I mentioned this at TCI and the MD recommended a 24 hour EEG if this keeps happening as it could be a type of seizure. I'm having a sleep study done later this month and the sleep MD agrees and says that the EEG I'm hooked up to during the study may pick this up. Anyone else have this?
I have been experiencing the same thing for about a week or so--smell cigarette smoke when no smoke exists. Thought it was coming from the AC vent in my office but then started smelling it in car and at home. The strange thing is that when I inhale, sometimes the odor is so real I feel my eyes slightly burning as if I were sitting next to someone smoking. I am 40 yrs. old, never smoked, have been off depression meds for about 8 mos. No recent sinus infections.
I have a low functioning immune system with possible porphyria (look this up and see if any of the other symptoms apply to you). I think that the smoke smell serves as a warning that there is something going on in your body that you need to discover. We have to be our own detectives and advocates. Blessings to everyone here who is suffering. Mine has been a ten year journey. I pray yours isn't as long.
I am interested in what your symptoms were after your stroke and any continued disabilites now. Only 5% of total strokes are carotid artery dissections which both of us had--mine over 3 years ago. I still have weakness on one side of my body, some difficulty with words and still battling headaches and have had a whole crop of other medical difficulties since my stroke.
On jan17 to now, I keep smelling this odorless smells that irritates nose, like when u hold a chili up close to your nose and it stings, thats how it feels, and i also when i inhale from my mouth i can kind of taste this smoke like taste and feeling in my mouth. My other symptoms are my lungs hurts occasionally and my head hurts.
She was admitted to the hospital prior to the stroke because of obvious symptoms but the MRI showed nothing. She was sent home and then returned because of increasing difficulties. The major stroke occurred in the NICU the second night of her stay. I was told she was not a candidate for the clot busting drug, tpa.
