Recommended Posts

Same here. I can smell some things and others that should have a strong smell I cannot.

My sense of smell was reduced to only rancid odors. A port a potty, cigarette smoke would make it through but the smell of a rose or a great meal cooking in the kitchen were not to be. I have been taking C/L for a Couple of years now and I'm happy to report that some of the nicer odors are being processed once again.

DH has no sense of smell.  He feels texture...like a heavy smoke.  Before PD we thought it result of years of welding in ship hulls or years of firefighting.  He does smell an awful odor as an aura before a migraine....a neurological thing.

I can smell better than anyone else  with PD in my support group, says the pathological competitor. *We just won't talk about the fact that I lost to every single caregiver in attendance*

There are some things I smell very well.  Windex is one.  But lots of things I just don't smell unless they're super strong.  That list includes bleach, dirty diapers, and rotting food.

I was just wondering the same thing.  My wife was taking me to work and all of the sudden she seems annoyed.  I ask what is wrong and she says "You can't smell that?".  I tell her I don't smell anything.... it was a skunk road kill smell.  I sniffed, but didn't gather much.  I come to work and smell a strong perfume/cologne smell.  Why?

I notice some days I can really smell the herbs in our pantry when I open it.  Some days I either don't notice or don't smell it. When I lost my sense of smell, I had young ones and I normally would not pick up on the diaper smell, but my wife would have her eyes watering.   I thought it was coming back, but it has been off and on.
