Is there anyone that understands this. It would sure be appreciated to have an understanding. This is been going on for about 4 months now for me. It started with just smelling exhaust fumes almost constantly. and now added to the smell is that my nose burns and my eyes too now. It is so strong I unconsciously breathe shallow because I naturally would not want to breathe the fumes..and or get away from it. and I have to make myself breathe deep and remind myself that this is not real exhaust fumes. But it SURE does SMELL like it. It makes me so sick to my stomach.It all seems so strange. and no one really believes me. Like who would. Ya know? It makes me feel a little better to know I am not the only one. I am looking for med insurance now.
I am trying to take notice of what is going on
when I start smelling this. weather, food I have eaten, etc. I know this is going to sound weird, but, I am noticing that it is happening when I have a large amount of Dairy. One day I had cottage cheese and fruit for lunch, then cheese, and later a large glass of milk at bedtime. I could smell that and my eyes were on fire. I am going to pay very very close attention to see if it happens again when I have dairy, if so, it may be an allergic reaction.
I have also been told by friends that I have a lot of the symptoms of Fibromyalgia. I was going to see if this was one of the symptoms as well. I hope it is dairy, I can control that. lol
Thanks, 1harvestgirl, for sharing. I was beginning to wonder if I too, was alone in this. It is really really annoying.
