WTF is wrong with me.

I smell things that are NOT there. But the funny thing is... they are NOT new smells... it is like i am re-smelling.

For no reason:

Sometimes, I will get a wif of perfume from a woman i did a long time ago.

Sometimes, i smell feces.

Sometimes, i smell a summer rain.

All while sitting at the computer. It is weirding me out... seriously. It's not like i was thinking about them.... and then I rememeber the smell. I am REALLY smelling them.

wtf?

Also:

Olfactory hallucinations- seen in schizophrenic patients.

May also be a sign that you're going to have a seizure.

"Phantom" when used in correlation to sensations perceived by a human, is usually used in reference to anatomical parts that are rendered non-existant, i.e. "Phantom limb pain" suffered by amputees. There is some medical references to a patient that still perceived "phantom olfactory sensations" years after receiving head trauma that rendered the olfaction-related brain structures inoperable.

This may actually be a case of synesthesia.

I thought synesthesia was when you get senses confused. For example you are able to taste a sound, or hear a color.

Synesthesia is not necessarily a confusion of the senses, but an involuntary joining of a real sensation with a perception of another sense. My feeling is that we all do it to some extent. Minty things are usually a certain color, there are "Blues" bands, hot food is usually red, but I believe that it is possible that one can manifest these symptoms to an extreme and have sensory memories triggered that make the perceived sense more real.

Gee, just curious with this question as well after reading the posts

ARE YOU FRICKING SCARED NOW??? OMG....

I have been told by a neurologist that I'm anosematic.

I have no scense of smell.

It's NOT A TUMOR and no you can not have my guns.

I guess if you are going to loose a scense that is the one I'd pick.

Like I always say, "There is more things in this world that stink that smell good."

Now I judge the rankness of my farts by my buddies reactions.
