Epilepsy/weird smell/vomiting

My father in law is in his mid 50's.For about 6 months now he has been having the smelll of dirt constantly.It happens all the time and is now making him very nauseous and vomit.He has lost about 30 pounds from this now.He has been diagnosed with epilepsy years and years ago and is on mediaction for it but now he has these particular symptoms which he never had before.Could it possibly be a Temporal Lobe condition? He has seen a nuerologist and had test done but thay found nothing.Is there anything you suggest as far as tests , possible conditions to check into or any info you might have?Thank you in advance for your time.

Hi,
Has he undergo CT scan and MRI of brain? Brain tumor can be a cause of olfactory hallucination. Apart from that i think you can also get an ENT examination done to rule out nasal polyps, rhinitis and deviated nasal septum. Epilepsy can also cause this symptom. I suggest you to get CT scan of brain and see an ENT specialist.Good Luck!
