I have been told numerous times by numerous people over the last 6-7 years I smell like dirty socks, yes, people are blunt. I am the most clean person around, meaning my body house bedding etc.
I can smell it every now and again, mostly when I'm stressed and my body temp. is above normal. My ear wax even carries the same odor. My feet have no odor whatsoever, they don't even sweat.
I have been to doctors, specialists, homopathic, and have been tested for everything just about, all bloodwork comes back normal, except for my potassium once or twice. I do have low blood sugar when I'm not eating a healthy diet.
I have been tested for TMAU, everything was normal. The only major thing I have is severe allergies.
I keep trying to be tested for Isovaleric Acidemia, but no one will do it because supposedly only children show signs of that.
I am at my wits end and really can not go forward in my professional career until this is dealt with. I would appreciate any of your suggestions, I don't want to be like this forever and 6-7 years is way too long.
