My husband has been smelling things. He smells boiled cabbage (We've never, in the past 10 years, had boiled cabbage. He says that the coffee tastes like fried fish. He says he smells cooking shrimp. We haven't had shrimp in 67 days. I'm scared. I'm worried that something might be interfering with the way his brain works. I think he should get a CAT scan. His medicare will pay for it. Should I try to convince him to get a CAT scan? How hard should I push it?
