So for the past couple of days since we've been home from vacation, I've noticed that in certain places in my house I smell something different. For instance, when I walk past our stairs, I smell feces. Not fun. And today, while watching TV I had an overwhelming smell of feces, that lingered. I have two small children, and hubby couldn't smell anything...also, no diapers were dirty.
Then tonight during dinner, I had a pepsi with our meal. Half way through the glass of pepsi, I noticed that it began tasting "fruity" - definitely not how pepsi is supposed to taste.
So needless to say, I'm freaking out that I'm smelling and tasting things that aren't there/that are supposed to taste differently.
2 years ago I had a CT scan of my brain because I had "phantom smells" and my doctor wanted to rule out a tumor. The scan came out 100% clean. Now I'm worried I have a brain tumor/lesion. I had an unusual bout of diarrhea 3 months ago and after numerous tests including a colonoscopy, my doctor diagnosed me with IBS and put me on medication. The medication worked...but I'm worried it's masking some type of intestinal cancer or lymphoma that has now spread to my brain.
Someone please calm me down. Any experience with this stuff? Am I just being paranoid?
