Ok, this may seem to be an odd question but have any of you noticed a change in the way you smell? I'm not sure if its because I'm having a problem or not but I was curious. I've noticed in the last 6 weeks or so that my scent is changing. I don't even know how to explain it. I just know it's different. I know it's stronger, obviously, when I'm fighting a fever. On top of that, I've noticed that my hair is getting oily faster. I used to wash my hair every other day because it would dry out if I didn't. Now, the hair at my scalp is getting oily but the ends are dry. It started about the time that I noticed the change in my "base scent." Whatever is causing this change, I'm not sure. What I am sure of, I don't like the result. It makes me feel dirty - that could just be because it is a change in my body. Let me tell you what has changed since this has started. I quit eating dairy, wheat & chocolate. My doctor put me on Metformin because I have polycystic ovaries which comes with insulin resistance. With that medicine, when I first started it, came horrible bowel issues (on top of what we already have problems with). I was having a hard time keeping any nutrition in me at all. I survived on rice and mashed potatoes. So, I have a hard time with fruit and vegetables right now. They just make my bowel issues worse. My system is tolerating the medicine now. I talked to my doctor about this. With my CFS issues it allowed the side effects (bowel problems) of the Metformin to drag on longer than it would in a person without CFS. So.....anybody else noticed that their "base scent" has changed or could it be that the change in med and severe change in diet along with the bowel issues have caused this? Obviously, when I feel like I can step out of my house safely without having to run to the bathroom, I will go to the doctor but I thought I'd ask ya'll while I remembered to ask.
