    My husband tells me that I have a nose like a bloodhound!! LOL!!! I can smell even the slightest thing! And drives me crazy when I can't figure out where it is coming from.
    Yes, somethings are tooooo strong for me! I have to be careful what I use.

    Soft hugs!

    Like Teresa, my husband also calls me a bloodhound, in fact he claims I have a better sense of smell than the dogs! I smell things no one else seems to smell.


    I have learned to stay away from sented candles stores, purfume counters, etc.

    Most give me a sinus attack now. I also buy detergent that is odorless (and I can still smell it!).

    This seems to be a part of Fibro too.

    I use as much natural cleaners in my home as possible.

    Shalom, Shirl

    mold, mildew, rain, DEATH (when my patients are terminal), perfumes, yeast, strep infection, and a "cancer" smell before anyone else around me can. It's kind of funny to be called by others who want to know "What IS that odor?" Oh well, at least I have SOME kind of talent!

    Not only do I have an extremely strong sense of smell, but smells actually get "stuck" in my sinuses. I can go for days smelling the same odor, and not nice smells like coffee or roses! I smell gross things like the cat litter box and stinky feet, yuk! This has been going on for years, long before I was diagnosed the FM.
