I constantly smell something that...
I constantly smell something that nobody else smells. At fist I thought it was in my couch. But when I moved a few weeks I noticed the smell in my clothes, bedding, curtains, EVERYTHING. Then when different women pass by wearing perfume, it gets much stronger and every one of them smells the same.

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
I suffer from no illnesses other than seasonal allergies. The only medication that I take is an occasional Zyrtec-D for allergies.
Doctor: Dr. Salar, Doctor replied 8 years ago
there are two possibilities here.. first is due to your allergies. second is from seizures. you should start taking zyrtec on daily basis. use normal saline drops in nostril several times during the day.also may need nasonex/astelin.also start prilosec otc. if problem persist after 2 weeks see a neurologist for EEG.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
