IF I remember correctly, you're tapering?  or have you quit?  I know when I'm wding I have a extremely sensetive nose. Plus I have this smell and/or taste that's awful.  I read someones post that it was the toxins working their way out.  Made sense to me.  So when I get that nasty smell or taste, I know the levels are working their way down.  I go brush my teeth, chew gum, etc.  Nothing tastes right, but it also keeps me from drinking so many diet sodas lol.  Hope this helps and I'm not just ramblin'.  lol

Weird.  I get funny smells that I have always joked about a olfacory hallucinations.  Somebody suggested sinuses/post nasal drip.  Don't know what it has to do with and don't know that I can say exactly what smell it is but it annoys me to no end!!
