I've been waking up every morning with a weird body odor. It fills up my entire room so i have to sleep with the windows open. This started when i was in 6th grade(10 years old) and now i'm 19 years old, so it's been about 9 years since this has been happening. It's really frustrating and embarrassing and i feel like i cant talk to anyone about this. I went to a ddocter and they had no idea what i was talking about. This happens every morning when i wake up but after i shower the smell goes away somewhat. I;m really clean person, i shower everyday twice a day, i work out everyday, i eat extremely healthy, wear clean clothes everyday, but yet i wake up every morning with this awful odor. I want to be able to wake up and not smell like this anymore. What is the problem??
My husband used to have the same problem! Turns out he has sleep apnea. The sleep apnea causes him to sweat a lot while he sleeps because his body is working so hard to breathe. The sweat was also more stinky than usual sweat because of chemical changes that were going on in his body during the sleep apnea. Now he's on a CPAP sleep machine and no longer has this problem. He also feels better than he ever thought he could, now that he is experiencing REAL sleep. I suggest you go get tested at a sleep clinic. It's really easy, they just put some stickers on your skin to monitor your oxygen levels and you go to sleep.
Sleep apnea is a serious problem if left untreated and leads to other problems like heart disease, high blood pressure, and early death. It's a silent killer. If untreated it will slowly ruin your life.
