Is it possible during PTSD, scent memory can also be triggered???

Last night i fell sick as hell; anxiety, depression and headache... but in addition to that i could smell tobacco/smoke. Dont think anyone even uses tobacco or smokes, so why the smell was so strong as if someone brought in a ton of those?

Is it possible that while going through ptsd, a person can trigger smell memories too?

Absolutely!! PTSD is very strong and memories of traumatic events can come in various ways. Everyday scents can trigger it depending on the person and situation. The mind is very strong. Hang in there, I'm here to listen if you need it.

Thank you. It seems very likely as well. I have seen a doctor about it and he is doing some tests for diagnosis.
