Possibility of no smell at all? (Schizophrenia/psychosis)

Postby dev » Fri May 09, 2014 10:25 pm

I can hear people around making nasty comments about bad breath, that dirty person, giggling, etc, etc... And it has been like that for more than 20 years.

I have been in consultation with many doctors, from ENT, digestive specialists, dentists... I have been through blood tests, urine tests, one sigmoidoscopy, one endoscopy, Helicobacter pylori tests, urine TMAU tests... And all kind of treatments, from anti-fungi to TMAU diets, mouth washes of all kinds and colors, hydrogen peroxide, charcoal, copper chlorophyl... I have done everything, except the psychiatrist.

This is quite unbelievable for me, but I am going to try with an anti-psychotic to see if the comments disappear because every time I have asked face to face whether I had bad breath, every time the answer has been negative. I have always thought they were all lying when they were challenged by a straight question, but what if they were all telling the truth?

Meeting kittycat and Atlantis about a year ago, and both assuring they could not smell anything on me, makes me think there is a small possibility the comments are not real.

I cannot believe I have been hearing others' people conversations and transforming them into nasty comments within my head. It sounds absolutely unbelievable, but I am going to try with antipsychotics anyway. I am too fed up for not trying with something else.

(The doctor thinks it is a kind of hallucination)

I will keep you all posted with the results in a few weeks. ;)

Hey Dev,

Have you been with other people when you have heard these comments, did they hear them too?
I read somewhere that fellow Tmau'er's can't smell each other?

Please keep us informed, Good luck!

Hi Dev for what it's worth I often wonder if it's all in my head.

When I ask family and friends they all say they have never smelt anything and yet I've seen some react. (this sends the crazy)

When I've gone to Doctors, ENT and Oncologist they say the same, unfortunately my confidence is so low I don't have the bottle to confront strangers.

But I'm going to start now for my own sanity, off on long haul holiday tomorrow so should be interesting on flight and at resort.

Last year an American women muttered I should take a bath!! again as she was with a group I didn't have the bottle to confront,
but thank to this forum I now have a name to put to this condition.

I'm awaiting the results of urine test.

Almost 5 months later...

It seems the complains about bad breath are diminishing.

Now it is unusual to hear any bad comment about bad smell or bad breath. I can still hear them, but the frequency of complains has been reduced dramatically.

I have not taken any medication and I have not diagnosis, but I believe it is a kind of psychosis, paranoia or mania.

My therapy has been mainly to talk about the issue with family and friends until realizing it was not real. Every time I hear it, I remember what my family has told me and the comments are disappearing with the time. From 10-15 bad comments per day 5 months ago to 2-3 per month.

Hi that's awesome that you are beginning to feel like that ,i must admit we live in a society that is obsessed with smell as if bad smells are smelt its assumed were bad people don't wash etc ,if you look back through history most weddings were made in June as,poor people had baths more then and held bouquet of flowers to hide the fact you hadn't bathed ,with tmau you are constantly listening out watching people and as soon as you hear just the word smell your brain goes crazy ,its refreshing to see progress
