Think I have been hallucinating smells


#1

Just like a burning smell. Have checked everywhere and all is fine - nothing burning. I am a bit stressed and I think my mind is playing tricks on me


#2

One time I had a smell of straight poop in my nose for hours, not fun.


#3

Today I have been smelling something very sweet. Often I can’t eat bread because of smell and taste


#4

I used to smell flowers. Even in the midst of cow sh1t


#5

i thought that once but it was my deoderant


#6

I have never had that. Have pretty extensive visuals though.


#7

I had that a few times.
Turned out some dust was burning in my computer one time. Another time it was a fly getting toasted on a lightbulb.

I’ve hallucinated smells before, mostly mold.


#8

I smell smoke a lot. It’s a very common hallucination according to my pdoc.


#9

I get them, but rarely. I had them like a month before my first psychotic break. I thought I was some sort of genius and using a more percentage of my brain, it happened in class and deterred me from learning because I was pre-occupied on my newly discovered skills.


#10

The other day I had the smell of vomit, cannabis etc. It’s pretty common for me


#11

I used to smell smoke all the time. I still smell it, but my Grandpa’s living with us now and he smokes, so at this point, I doubt it’s a hallucination.


#12

I often smell things other people don’t smell, but maybe it’s just that I’m endowed with a good sense of smell, or perhaps it’s suggestability. In any case the smells in question are often gas and pollutants. WHen do you know it’s a real hallucination?


#13

I used to get all kinds of really irritating olfactory (smell), hallucinations. Not fun.


#14

When look though you might, you can’t find the source. Or, when other people can’t smell it. Those are usually pretty good tip offs.
