Vanilla smells

OK, so I'm old enough to know, not to self diagnose or purely take advise from strangers on the internet.

and YES I will talk to my doctor

But I'm curious and have done some googling on phantom smells and the search results are really varied, so wondering if any of you lot have had a similar experience or know of any experiences from others

so for maybe 4 months maybe more, I seem to be smelling something that is not there, no rhyme or reason and usually at home, when I'm quiet and lying down watching TV

It is a briefest waft odor of Vanilla almost a milk chocolate smell, so, I can't pip point where the smell is coming from, seems to be from my body, rather than an object near me. NOW I don't use fancy products, hairsprays, scented stuff, mainly due to I have Psoriasis (very mild) and NOTHING I've ever used has that female smells anyway.

I'll smell it then it's gone, it's not disturbing, and I don't seem to have any other symptoms at the same time, only happens when I'm awake, the reason I@m relating this , is because the last time I smelt chocolate it triggered a food binge and my resulting blood sugars where threw the roof.

I haven't been on any "new" medication, I do occasionally, and for many years, occasionally get a mind rendering headache, for about 10 seconds or so, and I "think" one of my med's did warn of that, all my blood work, BP, cholesterol are fine, I'm on BP med's (for something else) and my BP's are on the nose

I've never mentioned it to anyone because for one I didn't think anything of it.

Oh and no it's not a ghost or garbage like that LOLZ

Just asking, as I said I'll go see doctor next time and mention it

Got me interested, and I found this. Seems you're not alone.

Hi!

"My first language is french so I appolagize for the spelling... I am posting this in the general Health forum since I don't know what I am dealing with... It's concerning my father. He is 51 and up until a few months ago, he was generaly in pretty good health. His problems are mostly with his knees (will most probably have an operation on both of them) and now alot of his articulations hurt. What concerns me the most is that for about a month now, he has been almost constantly smelling vanilla... when no one else can. And it happens anywhere (home, office, car) so it's him and not in his environment. He has no other symptoms. He isn't taking any medication. I tried searches for his problem and asked him if at one point he had other symptoms such as blurred vision, diziness etc... and nothing. Soooo... I'm usually good at finding causes for the weirdest problems but for this one, I have realy NO idea. If anyone could help me with this I would appreciate it greatly.
Thank you!"

"Hi!
Well, if anyone is interested, my dad went to see the doctor and it seemed very clear to him that his symptoms where ones of thyroid disorder (gloiatre?). I didn't know this but his throat is also a bit swollen. It seems that the vanilla smell is a very typical symptom... I guess I'll be moving along to the thyroid disorder forum!"

Yeah I also googled that up, and yes amongst other things, I do have a thyroid disorder, hypothyroidism, and I'm on med's, actually my doc recently lowered my thyroxine does, as my T4, TSH, showed my thyroid being over stimulated, so took down from 100 to 88 mcg

but yeah a good point, and txs for doing the googling

This is not something your should try to self diagnose. It would seem wise and prudent to see your personal physician as soon as you can.

But I'm curious and have done some googling on how Phallosan works and the search results are really varied, so wondering if any of you lot have had a similar experience or know of any experiences from others
so for maybe 8 months usage of Phallosan forte and the results may be good gains, I seem to be smelling something that is not there, no rhyme or reason and usually at home, when I'm quiet and lying down watching gains with Phallosan Forte.

It is the briefest waft odor of Vanilla almost a milk chocolate smell, so, I can't pip point where the smell is coming from, seems to be from my body, rather than an object near me. NOW I don't use fancy products, extender, hairsprays, scented stuff, mainly due to I have Psoriasis (very mild) and NOTHING I've ever used has that female smells anyway.

I'll smell it then it's gone, it's not disturbing, and I don't seem to have any other symptoms at the same time, only happens when I'm awake, the reason I@m relating this , is because the last time I smelt chocolate it triggered a food binge and my resulting blood sugars where threw the roof.

Did your doctor find anything? I am having same thing but my doctor is not taking me seriously.

hi m8, so not had a chance to see the doc,
I'm pretty sure it has to do with my thyroid, but won't confirm it
I think your doc "should" take it seriously as if you google it up, it's a real thing.
"Phantom smells" could be nothing, or something major.
I'll keep this thread updated
