Sometimes ( there is no rhyme or reason to it ) I get a strong "ammonia" type smell when I breathe in....I can rule out household cleaners as a cause- I do not have any pets- and I do not work out or sweat excessively. I'm thinking it's time to see the doctor, but I admit I am hesitant. I'm always afraid of that "look" you get when you describe your problem and they look at you like your either crazy or your someone who is looking for attention and/or overreacting.. I may just ask him to do a mini physical on me and ask to have blood work done since it has been over a year since I have had any bloodwork. Is a "standard" bloodwork order good enough or can I/should I suggest some things I would like checked?? Any doctors out there let me know your opinions. I hate to think the worst with everything and I don't want to overreact, but I think I should go get a check up to be on the safe side. I go on the internet often and I psych myself into a panic. I have a family history of diabetes, kidney & liver issues so should I suggest some other test rather than your standard bloodwork? Any help from anyone would really be appreciated. Thanks in advance.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
