Hi carol, could you be a little more specific ? Where are you when this normally occurs ? At home, supermarket, out for a walk, certain room of the house ? If it is happening all the time no matter where you are then you must see your doctor. People with tumours often complain of smelling a bad smell. If it is happening only in a certain place it may be just a matter of tracking down the source of the smell.

Regards,

suzy

Bad Smell
Did you find the cause of the bad smell? My husband has been experiencing something similar. He has been smelling a smell for several weeks. At work, at home, in the car etc. None of us smell it. I know it must be a symptom for something but I can't find any information on it and of course he doesn't want to go to the doctor.

Bad Urine Smell
This smell seems to be inside my sinuses. I can smell it every so often. It is not my smell. It is around me. Sometimes it is when I am at home and other times it is when I am at work. I seem to remember hearing on tv or reading that it may be a deficiency of some sort in women. Please respond if anyone knows the answer.

Bad Smell From Sinuses
Well, I have the same experience, and it took years to find out what was the source. After a CAT scan, my doctor discovered cysts inside my sinuses, and these were the source of the bad smell. I highly recommend that you get with your doctor and discuss the possibility that cysts inside your sinuses is the source of the bad smell...
