Bad smell coming from nose
I smell the same smell all the time.  It has gotten worse every day.  I have noticed this for the past month.  I also have been very weak and my doctor has given me predisone and some antibatic's because he says that I had Pnamonia.  My legs started swelling up and he said I needed water pills.  I finely got rid of the swelling in my legs.  I have been sick for about two months and have had a lot of tests.  My doctor is good, but today I decided that this smell really got bad and Im making an appointment with him for tomorrow.  I hate this smell and I also have COPD.  I don't smoke and haven't for over 20 years.  I have been keeping my breathing good with medicine.  All of a sudden I have been having problems breathing with this.  If you can help me with this smell thing and breathing problem I would really apprecate this.

I have it too, and it's terrible. It gets worse when I have pain in my right palate and my molar gets loose. I understand these are symptoms of peridontal disease but I can't find anything linking peridontal disease to sinusitis. I took a full course of flagyl and the smell went away for about a month, but its has recently returned. It's as people describe; there's an intermittent strong odor of dead cat or similar rotting flesh smell. How can there be no permanent solution for this?
