Hi everyone. I know that we're not meant to be able to smell anything but recently I've been smelling something in my own head (or nasal passages)! It's not a pleasant smell, rather musky and i wish I knew what it was. It's not the first time I've smelt this during my life. I'd say it hung around about 10 years ago and then went away but it seems to have re-appeared. Anybody had similar? When one write 'PD and smell' into Google, there were many articles about a Scottish lady who could smell her husband when he got PD. Irritatingly, the journalists focused on how this ability might be able to provide a way of diagnosing the disease, but it struck me that nobody was asking the central question : where does this smell come from and what can it tell us about the cause - if any - of the disease? I did find one line that suggested scientists had determined that it came from the skin. I'm probably mixing two issues together here as my smell is definitely coming from inside my head somewhere, not my skin, but the idea of smelling of something is intriguing. One of our members has suggested to me that PWP may have ammonia toxicity and I must say that what I can smell doesn't seem too far removed from an ammonia/bleach thing.
