Smelling Smoke That Is Not There?

Postby Avshai » Mon Oct 09, 2017 9:38 pm

I'm smelling smoke, and have been for the past week or so...no matter where i go or what i do, i smell the smoke....i was not near any fire. I do not smoke, nor have i ever smoked....i don't live with anyone that smokes....i have recently had a personality disorder diagnosis, i have very recently been getting onset of blurred vision, and sometimes in only 1 eye..i get headaches almost every day that are not the same....I an unbalanced sometimes when i walk...seems like i have to try hard to stay on balance and stop straffing from one side or the other....I havn't lost weight though....I also do get confused sometimes, especially when i speak, and i do mess up my words quite a bit when i try to think lol....
And when i was in the hospital earlier this year, to get my appendix taken out...i had extreme pain while in my bed after the surgery, unimaginable pain which lasted for over an hour...then they finally gave me pain meds, and had a cat scan without contrast....but said they didn't find anything... would that be a conclusive test for brain cancer? Because my great uncle died of brain cancer in his low 40's, and i'm 27. other cancer's do run in my family...prostate, lung, colon, rectal...and so on....anywho! Any help could get great, Just wondering what yall think is wrong with me....Thanks!

Sorry to mention you're going to without doubt scent of smoke. Anyone with a smoker of their condominium (even folks who feel that "best smoking within the kitchen" by hook or by crook makes it OK) consistently stink of it. As a non smoker and dwelling in a non smoking condominium I can immediately inform if any one has been in a smoking condominium and even simply had a gasp. The reality is that you're proof against it and the whole lot for your complete condominium will probably be permeated with the scent. You simply can not scent it. And I ought to say that your dad smoking within the condominium is absolutely egocentric as he's making you a passive smoker!

phantosmia or "phantom smell," also called "olfactory hallucination"

Have you had your thyroid tested? You need testing for thyroid ANTIBODIES as well as TSH.
TSH ?norm? should be .3 ? 3 (w/ most feeling best at < 2) but, for diagnosis, would not matter if ANTIBODIES are present. Indicative of Hashimoto?s Autoimmune Thyroiditis (cycles between hyper & hypo at start)?main cause of HypOthyroid & is worse (...OR Graves Disease - HypERthyroid).

WARNING: Doctors seem not to want to find/treat thyroid disease.
You may have to go to more than one doctor before you get the right tests, interpretation, and treatment.
Best wishes.
