Well as I lifted my scarf off the seat I was sitting on I got this awfull wave of a horrid smell, it was like sour milk, I ignored it and was leaving and got another wave, well my scarf was the sorce of the smell, when I got home I undressed and my trousers stank too, and you guessed it sour milk, and me being me was sick ! Someone must have spilled it on the seat wow won't sit there next week.

Many of us are sensitive to different odours causing all sorts of problems, sour milk though has to be up there as one of the most offensive. I hope you have recovered now. Lou xx

The smell of bleach makes me sick, in fact even thinking about it makes me feel sick.

Oh really I'd be lost without it around the house.

HI Granniescrochet

I am so sorry to read that and I genuinely hope that you can find some resolution and relief to this issue. I do not have this problem myself but due to my medication I have issues with taste. I constantly have a strange taste in my mouth which I find quite unpleasant.

All my hopes and dreams for you

I have experienced this from time to time, I get a sort of metal taste not nice but it comes and goes, right now my main problem is sleep, not like a lot of you ppl out there unable to sleep, I could sleep around the clock and still feel tired its so bad at times I'm in bed more hours than out of bed, I do try to be more active but with the weather here in not so bonnie Scotland right now it's hard cold snow wind.

Thanks for your reply take care

I've nothing useful except sympathy. I can take rotten meat but rancid fish and rancid fruit are anathema.

Hi Granniescrochet my family find my retching at the slightest thing highly amusing. I also have emetophobia so am rarely sick. I am with you on the bleach smell I swear by it and have a stash under the bath. As for the triggers sour milk really is a nasty one. People look at you funny, on the rare occasions when I do eat/drink out, because I have to wipe everything. It is either that or retching in public which just won't do. Good Luck x

Yep... I've done the same but mine is slightly different! I actually smell things that aren't there!!....Whilst taking my washing out of the machine I turned to my daughter in law and said... " does that smell of cat pee to you?" She laughed so much and said "why on earth would your washing smell of cat pee?....you haven't got a cat!!...It smells of Lenor softener like it always does!!

My fella reckons i've got a superpower of super-smell! I can sniff anything out, and if there's an unpleasant smell around i literally can't focus on anything else (which is sometimes a problem at work as a couple of my classes have BO problems!) WE went to a pub the other month and every time the men's toilets opened i got a whiff of urine and disinfectant. Nobody else could notice it! :-(

I know how that feels smelling things that other ppl don't notice.
