for the last five years i have had bad smells thru my nostrils that come and go for no apparent reason, these are smells or odors that only i seem to be aware of as i have asked others around me if they can smell these odors and they cannot, i have complained about this to a number of doctors, to my dismay, doctors seem to be confused and have no answers for me, at this point right now i am at my worst, the smells or odors i get are there almost all the time now and are very potent either vile, bile, chemicaly oriented or smoky wood burning type smells, anything that has a good smell hardly registers or lasts very long while bad smells are intensified greatly and linger on for long periods of time, the smells that are present now have been with me for the last five or six weeks straight, i cannot trust any more doctors with my time or money, one thing i have noticed is that the smells are related to and along with chronic pain best described as fibremyalgia, most of this pain is always in and around my chest area, my heart as been checked out and seems to be fine so doctors don't think there is anything wrong with me, fibremyalgia was ruled out which my doctor dismissed do to the fact that i am male, i don't know what to do anymore as doctors seem to be completey dumbfounded with my condition, does anybody have any suggestions, i am very tired of living like this.
