For the past week or so, certain food smells make me nauseous. For example, if my mom is baking mint chocolate chip brownies, or blueberry muffins, the smell makes me want to run to the bathroom. Or, last night, I made a chicken and spinach lasagna. I spent an hour just preparing it, and as it was cooking, the smell was making me really nauseous. Now, these are all foods that I normally love! But you cannot really eat something if the smell effects you like that. The last time that this happened to me, it was with seafood and shellfish, and years later, I developed a severe allergy to it. I went to the doctor, but they cannot figure out what is causing it. Everything I find online about it has to do with pregnancy, however, I know for absolute certain that I am not pregnant. Unless of course I am the next virgin mary. Does any one have any ideas?
