I have a constant smell in my nose. Sinuses. Same smell even

I have a constant smell in my nose. Sinuses. Same smell even facing into a stiff breeze. At first I thought it might be something I touched or that was on me so yes a shower all clean cloths ( I have great hygiene anyways) then like I said, I even smell it facing into a stiff breeze. I was sick last week and vomited a couple of times with some getting into my nose. Is that a possibility? It has me feeling i'll again.

Since when are you having these symptoms? Do you have any nasal discharge or any post nasal drip? Could you describe the smell?

No running nose. doesnt feel like a sinus infection, though I have a slight sinus headache. Almost a chemical smell like an old piece, or burnt piece of poly pillow stuffing. No exposure to that though.
Symptoms started last night in my sleep. Actually woke me up.

The exact reason of this would be difficult to say.

Try steam inhalation - twice daily, saline nasal drops - 3 - 4 times daily to help with your symptoms.

Let me know if you need any further information.
