Anybody else experience this?
Over past several months, I have noticed this odd chemical smell. I thought it was something in my house, but now, I feel it's omitting from me instead. It varies (some times I don't notice it at all). Today was a worse day for it, and I smelled it frequently no matter where I went (home, different rooms, went to different house, etc). Pretty sure it's me.
I don't feel it's from sweat or breathe.
I can't pinpoint it or describe it well, except it's like a chemical smell. I thought maybe something dysfunctional is going on with my sense of smell, but I'm beginning to feel it's emitting from me instead.
Any thoughts on this? I'm a bit at a loss.
UPDATE: It is especially worse this week (APRIL-mid). And ironically (or maybe not so ironically!), I've been feeling pretty bad in regards to non-functioning and extreme, debilitating fatigue - like my body just isn't functioning! When I took a detox bath, I could STILL smell it with most of my body (except head) under water.... so... ????
I don't feel it's ammonia smell (does not smell like any type of urine) - but definitely a strong chemical smell. I have not changed any soaps/etc (we just use diluted, foaming coconut oil soap for many years now).
I think something is going on with my body now, and I just don't know what it is. I didn't react to lyme herbals in the past, but I'm wondering if I should retry them. I just really don't know what to associate the smell with, so I feel like I'm blindly guessing on treatment for this. I feel it's a clue, and I am just not smart enough to decipher it!
Kid#1: Extremely sick for several years, very difficult to treat, but doing great now!
Kid#2: Still sick now despite being treated for years but doing better (not well yet).
Kid#3: Generally good but relapsing off/on.
Me: Adv Labs positive 2016 (suspected I passed to my kids)-not as sick as others, mostly battling fatigue and yeast issues (heart/kidney issues resolved)
Treating with herbals now.
