Chronic Pain Smell

I have had chronic back pain for many years and have been on Oxycontin CR 80 mg 5 times a day. I am also on Soma 3 times a day along with 4 other medications. Almost a year ago a pinched nerve in my back started spasms every morning that is the most unbearable pain I have ever had and it last for around 2 to 4 hours. I have noticed that I now have a weird smell about me in the mornings and was wondering if this has happened to any other chronic pain people. I know this is a strange question, but I would like to know if I am the only one. I am new to these boards so I hope this is not out of line.
