Odors no one else smells

I smell odors (bad smelling) that no one else smells.  I feel like I smell, my house and anything close to me, but no one else smells it.  What is happening?  This has been going on for several weeks.  It was weeks before I realized no one smelled it.


This discussion is related to I smell things no one else does.

Hi.  Just a remote possibility, and don't mean to scare you, but mini seizures can cause an aura where you smell really bad smells.  Does it happen only in certain places, or only at certain times?   Another possibility is anxiety.

In women such smell can be pregnancy. Sometimes, actually 2/3 of the times fertilized egg does not survive ( for unknown reasons, or a mate having bad sperm), but symptom like distorted smell gets set in already, and it takes a couple of weeks for it to disappear.

Another reason could be diabetes, or kidney disease. However, I am not a doctor.

I smell vomit, but no one else does. I did this sinus flush that flushed out my upper sinuses and a bunch of green mucus came out. I had my boyfriend smell it and he almost threw up. I still have the smell, but it's not as bad since I did the flush.
