You may think I am completely dotty (blame it on the dreaded brain fog) but since Christmas I can smell this strange smell all the time. At first I thought it was an old smell of cooking, then thought I had left something burning, and also used a deodoriser in the house to get rid of it,but it is none of these things and I can smell it all the time both night and day! It is as if it is in my nose! Is this yet another side effect of Pred? Has anyone else experienced anything similar, or am I becoming completely neurotic? Also do I understand from a previous comment from PMRPro that this hated brain dog is caused by Pred rather than Polymyalgia itself? IF so does that mean that if one can reduce the Pred then it will go away? I struggle with it all the time and it is very depressing.
