I have experienced the loss of the ability to smell for a number of years even though I was diagnosed with PD only three years ago BUT I often have phantom smells (wires burning, ammonia, permanent wave solution, smoke and other smells I can’t describe.) I wonder if I am alone in this or have other PD patients experienced this.
How about it folks? Anyone else experiencing phantom smells like those Sharon describes above? Please write in a comment to let Sharon and the rest of us know your experience with phantom smells.
