Fibromyalgia Action UK


Hi about 9 months ago i was going through counseling when i started to have weird smells, cant Reilly smell food or flowers i use to be able to smell rain now i cant, the smells that bother me the most is cardboard and fruit im reconsidering going back to counseling to see if they uncovered something from my, past any advise this is driving me crazy. I talked to my GP and he didn't know what to think about it.

Hi Rokk,

I remember hearing something similar to what you describe so if you google Phantosmia, I think you may find some help with what you have experienced.

Hope this helps 😀

Fibro does affect your senses and the sense of smell comes up a lot. my sense of smell seems more like a dogs :P I can smell things that others cant and a lot of smells that i used to like i now cant stand. :(

If some one is cooking in the kitchen and i dont know what it is then it smells awful, but if i know what it is it smells like what it.


I hope that makes sense, :P :P
