welcome to Just Answer
I am waiting for you to come online
hello are you there?
I am here
so you are having olfactory hallucinations
what is your taste perception like, do you taste food?
Yes, everything taste as it should.
so olfactory hallucinations is a problem of the temporal lobe
of the brain
do you have a history of migraine?
or any headache history?
just as of late.
and the headaches are upon arising in the morning?
Very tired as well.
well, not to overly concern you
I am a fit 135lb 5'1 female
but you need to see your doctor about this, and you should see a neurologist
you have three issues
the olfaction problem
the visual blurring
Ok what do I tell them so they do not think I am crazy
and the morning headaches
together they sound like a mass effect in your temporal lobe
no neurologist would ever think your were crazy
That does not sound good.
That is good to know.
it does not sound good, I will be honest, but I cannot examen you
so it still could be nothing
you need a good neurological examination at this point
Would you be able to recommend a Neurologist in Bangor Maine
someone to look in your eyes for papillaedema

Ok thank you. I have contacted my PCP and they can see me today at 4.
seeing things side by side?
if you have any questions after you see him

he should get your a neurology consult or referral
I just got new bi focal lenses in Jan. I had trouble with them at first but came to get use to them rather quickly. The vision blurrinest has just started happening about the same time as smelling the smoke.
tell him you are worried you have something in your temporal lobe
do you have blurring with one eye closed?
no double vision though.
is it one eye more than the other?
well that might still just be an eye problem
cannot tell from here
you need the exam
it is as though I have taken my glasses off. If I am bent over and stand up fast I feel like I have inner ear. I get light headed.
that is not good
positional headache and headache that is in the morning
is always a concern
it could be sinuses
but you cannot say from here
and with sinus problems
Ok, so I appreciate your help and will consult with my physician today.
you should not be smelling smoke

Thank you very much for your help. I saw my PCP on Wed. of last week and was tested for Prolactinoma. My prolactin levels were 105. They are scheduling for a MRI. Your were right on with seeing my doctor and everything that is related to a proclatinoma is stuff I have been experiencing for the past year. I am very glad I took your advice. Hard to tell how long I may have gone just thinking I was going out of my mind. You have been of great help and I cannot thank you enough, Ruby
