Hello, I have what I believe to be fetor hepaticus which is fecal smelling breath.But here is the thing everything I eat literally has a distinct smell not just fecal.I also have the sweet smelling breath which is also associated with that condition and a strong burning oder aswell which isnt associated with any known condition.I usually start coughing up mucus containing these oders about 10 minutes after eating and the process continues for about 24 hours(I know bcause i fasted untill the oder went away) after which my breath returns to normal.Iv been told that my liver is fine by my Doctors and that they wont give me an mri to check for portal hypertension beause the condition is associated with cirrosis.Since they havent smelled the oders personally they think ists all in my head.Does anyone know of doctors who specialize in this condition.I dont care how far I have to travel.
