Does anyone experience strange smells?

Hi, I've been smelling smelly smells for a couple of months now. I assumed that it was a temporary side effect from one of my cocktail of meds but now I'm a bit worried it's here to stay. It smells a bit like old smoke. Someone on an American RA forum said the same thing (smokey smell) so I wondered if anyone on here has experienced it.

Hello BOB here

It is important that you explain to GP what is happening here it is one of the first signs of stroke, I think ??.

Although I am not a Doctor so not qualified to diagnose this.

Good luck

Hello my friend who was on mtx said he smelt things more strongly if that makes sense. I've not had this though. Get with gp/rheum etc x

I agree with the others, it could be also a maybe sinus problem. I tend to get upper respiratory infections with my meds and o get strange smells. I have had to get antibiotics for this, so maybe worth a GP check?

Let us know if u find out cos it's an interesting post!!
