I suffer from anxiety..for many years. 3 weeks ago I woke up and smelled burned toast. I had my physical and told my doc about that and some tingling in my cheeks (is something I have always experienced when I am exp hi anxiety) and ear ringing (on occassion) etc. She is sending me for an MRI. Since then, I feel like I am CONSTANTLY smelling something burning, daily now. It comes and goes so fast that I am not sure if I actually smell it. Could this be my anxiety? Anyone experience weird smells and what did your GP say it was?
i should clarify that my doc is very thorough and bc i am anxious she always sends me for tests, and since there were a few symptoms i was describing, she is sending me, although she said another doc prob would not. i just want to know how common it is to smell things and if it related to anxiety at any way.
