sweet smell
chosenone2 posted:
I have had the sweet smell in my nose for about 3 months, I don't know where it is coming from I burn candles in my bedroom some time, so I thought that was where it is coming from but I have the same smell when I am not in my bed room. I noticed the same smell at work. I am on several medicaions for different things. Could be a medical condition from my meds or something going on in my blood?
Rod Moser, PA, PhD responded:
A specific reason for your aberrant smell cannot be blindly determined over the Internet. There can be numerous reasons, from problems in your sinues, to neurlogical reasons, such phantom smell disorders.

You will need to see your medical provider -- someone who knows you, your medical history, which medications you are taking, and someone who can examine you first-hand, in order to start the investigative process. None of these things can be done by via the Internet....I am sorry.
