Q. I have a very acute sense of smell. Most things that have a smell cause me to have Migraines every day.
I have heard that a chiropractor is who I need to treat me for this problem. Anyone else here have this problem? What have you done and were you able to treat it?
|A1||I can't remember where I heard about the chiropractor's involvement but it is really unpleasant. I tend to make life unpleasant for others to, just not to have a migraine. Things like cooking popcorn, perfumes, trash and many other things will give me a migraine (not a headache) right away. It may be called Hyperosmia (abnormal sense of smell).|
|A2||Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system. so i'm not sure what a chiropractor can do for you...but your condition sounds unpleasant. it might worth a shot.|

|A1||HI betty,thank god he has a friend like you--I dont like saying this but,your friend is killing himself,and the sooner you try to get him into a hospital the better--it not going to be easy-but you can only try.At this point he is at risk of LUNG CANCER--A VERY BAD INFECTION--AND CARDIAC ARREST,because of his weight,eating is an addiction,and people die from it,also people die from respiratory arrest because of his weight--stay strong--mrfoot56|
|A2||there are about 50 different causes that can cause bad body odor. things like acidosis, gangrene, and there's even a rare condition called Fish-odor Syndrome. that syndrome causes people to smell like rotten fish all the time (even after a shower). but in order to find a cause for the bad odor- you need to look for more symptoms. i think a dr. will know what to look for.|
