I am experiencing a series of different disturbances. I have had shooting pains randomly occour in my left side, under my rib cage. I am dizzy, and cannot see properly. I have been having problems understanding people when they talk to me, as well as reading in general; the words still fit together properly, but the entire page appears blurry and unfocused. I have been constantly smelling burning toast for the past couple days, again, mainly on my hands, but no one else can smell it. There is a pressure in my head, especially on my right temple. My hands are shaky, and my thumbs (mainly my right) are in tremendous pain. I really do not know what is happening with me. Does anyone have any idea? Please, this has been occurring for a while now.

Smelling unpleasant odors when not present along with affected brain functions (reading, understanding what is read), headache, blurry vision, may indicate something serious as brain tumor.
Smell hallucinations can be symptom of migraine, seizure, respiratory infection (chronic sinusitis, rhinitis), too.

See your physician!

Obviously it's way too late for this - but I would have said:
Sounds like a stroke - you should go to the emergency room immediately!

i have worked with individuals with epilepsy and pre and pot seizure activity can produce this sensory hallucination.most any dr would recognize this symptom as abnormal brain activity.go to dr and im positive that with your symptoms you will not be ignored as these are neurological symptoms.fiftycents
