This is my fisrt post and I’d like to start by saying what a terrific site this is!
I find posts supportive and kind, and I enjoy the humour some of you guys inject so skilfully to lighten the sometimes painful and emotive subject matter.
I am currently awaiting diagnosis, and have found this site useful to help me make sense of some of the scarier symptoms whilst I’m resting and hoping to feel better soon.
I am hoping that I have not got ms but I have begun to learn (through listening to you guys) the depth of pain and suffering some people have to endure on a daily basis while I am on my current journey. I will endeavour to use this learning to be a kinder person going forward regardless of my diagnosis!
However, I am having a ball with an incredibly heightened sense of smell…Ive looked for threads on this to no avail. Things I have always liked the smell of such as freesias, lillies and chocolate now smell sublime… with chocolate the smell is more amazing than the taste… hehe
Although icky smells are also more pungent I was fascinated earlier smelling some goats cheese…it was really earthy and rich.
Bubble bath and body lotion has become a ritualistic experience which helps detract from some of the more painful and nasty pains.
Has anyone experienced this ?
