Ok, here’s a new one...I am 61 and post menopausal. For a few weeks I have been smelling cigarette smoke, but no one in my household smokes. At first, I thought it was the new neighbors next door, but nobody there smokes either. I use Symbicort & Flonase for my “menopause asthma” and thought that the smoke smell could be a side effect of those drugs. I remember when I was pregnant I had an irrational sense of smell, I could smell things nobody else could. I am wondering if this smelling of cigarette smoke is yet another side effect of hormone imbalance. Just throwing it out there - I looked online and there can be some sinister causes like epilepsy, brain tumors etc. but I am not going to let my anxiety run wild with this - just thought I would ask -
