    Phantom Smells

    The last couple of Days I have noticed a smoke/ Cigarette smell, even though none are around.

    Doing a search on the internet, just scares the crap outta ya, talking about
    Tumors, Aneurysms, Epilepsy, and Neuro Problems.

    Anyone experience these?

    I experienced a phantom smell in the gym today, and it wasn't cigarettes. I hate when people cant go to the locker room to do that.
    I highly recommend all IronMagLabs supplements!

    Yes, it happened to me.
    It can be a brain tumor but it is rare. DonĀ“t worry that quick tough, it is usually caused by a cold or the beginning of a sinusitis. In a few days you will be better. Trust me.

    Yeah I read about sickness affecting the chemical reaction affecting smells. I am not worried.

    Thanks Jodi.

    Nah don't feel anything in particular. Just the smell of smoke. It makes me feel like I am in a smoky room, even my eyes begin to sting. Right now it is about 1 or 2 times a day for about 20 minutes.

    Smell is a chemical reaction so it could be numerous things. I ain't gonna get in a panic or anything. I don't really trust doctors anyway I probably wouldn't even of gone to the doctor if my wife wasn't pestering me all the time

    Simple partial seizures presenting just as spontaneous smells can be one of the most benign forms of seizures. However, over here, imaging of the head (preferably MRI with contrast) is mandatory since you want to be sure something isn't lurking around the olefactory center in the brain (ie: a mass).aka "George Gershwin syndrome" ...... but your neurologist will most likely be ordering that.

    I never heard of it before. Did a quick search and found others who have that and are talking about it here:

    Well just had an EEG today. Nothing really to exciting. Bunch of plates stuck to my head. Open Eyes close eyes Open Eyes, Close Eye, Breath Deep Breath Normal, Push these Buttons.

    Suprised I got an EEG Appointment this quickly. Have to wait to see the neurologist for results. So will have to wait and see.

    The Smells have been deminishing. Last experience was Yesterday AM and only lasted for probably 10 seconds.
