Recently, I've read a lot on here about the similarities between PATM and TMAU2 and how MEBO can't even differentiate between the two based on permeability results. I have more to add. I've gone the last four years of high school thinking I smelled and incorrectly attributing many of the reactions to odor instead of PATM. Reactions such as nose rubs or covering of the nose, my mind immediately jumped to odor. Nobody ever told me I smelled, and I got comments very, very rarely. Like 20 times a year, I'll hear, "it smells like **** here" or "who farted". So I worked up the courage to ask two of my closest friends, if I smelled or not. 2 people who are not afraid to say anything to me and have consistently reacted around me (nose rubs, coughing, touching face). I asked them and the response was "no, not at all". All this time, I had been so focused on an odor that I didn't even realize that people were coughing around me. Now, I notice the coughing all the time, but back then, it never crossed my mind that I was the one causing it.
So how could PATM connect to TMAU2? Well during the past 4 years, I tended to overeat almost every day, with a very high fat, high protein diet. Lots of meat, lots of avocados, lots of soy. And even then I only very rarely released odor. So I was thinking, if you have a horrible diet and you eat a lot, PATM could turn into TMAU2 or exhibit similar symptoms.
