The way she describes it sounds familiar. What do you guys think of this?

Something about a musky smell. Sounds like the one that has been associated with night sweats for me --
not ammonia, but another Lyme and co smell.

She kept telling her husband he should shower or brush his teeth or something. 10 years after that started, he was diagnosed with Parkinson's. Then one day she went to a Parkinson's support group meeting and thought everyone had that smell.

At one time all doctors could tell what disease a person had by their smell.

Even today a lot of the nurses can tell what disease people have by scent.

Cancer, a dark heavy odor.
TB almost like baking bread
Gang green a heavy sweet odor

And the list goes on.

I made the mistake one time of telling a young lady that I thought she had cancer. Told her to go to her doctor and get checked out.

She laughed, thought it was funny.

about 4 months later found a lump on her breast. Which was found to be cancer, she came totally unglued. Claimed that I was some kind of witch, that I was in league with satan an caused her cancer.

So, even when I see different people with various ailments, I KEEP MY BIG MOUTH SHUT!!

So interesting.

I wonder if Parkinsons smells like that Lyme and co. smell, and what that would mean.
