seizures

I went and saw my doctor last week and he said he probably have to send me to see a new doctor I have no clue what he means.. does anyone know?So I am on Lamictal XR 600mg he said it can go up to 800 mg makes me a zombie etc and hate it and he said I might have to live with the smell.. I can't go out cause I think other ppl can smell what I smell..What can it be where I keep smelling this nasty smell it goes away for a week then comes back? Do ppl smell this all the time? Does it ever go away? I have a feeling thee is more going on cause I have a cat she only sticks nex to me like super glue  when there is some wrong..Plzzz help losing my mine..Thanks

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Olfactory hallucinations or Phantosmia can be caused by temporal lobe seizures. Phantosmia most often occurs as a result of a head injury or upper respiratory infection. It can also be caused by, sinusitis, brain tumors, migraine, Parkinson's disease and stroke. Any infection or blockage in your nose can cause you to smell something that is not there. So, don't worry and discuss these options with your doctor. He may refer you to an ENT specialist if needed.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
