Floral smells in my nose
joy1020 posted:
I sometimes wake up with a strong, putrid floral smell in my nose. I threw away my husband's and my deodorants thinking I smelled them on us at night. That wasn't the problem. At one time I smelled an ammonia smell but now only floral. Is this a sinus problem? I don't take any sinus meds, and don't need them.

It could be a sinus problem, certainly. It could also be a side effect from another medicaiton. I've even heard of brain tumors doing this but that would be low on my list of possibilities. Definitely talk to a doctor about it if you can.
