Acute sense of smell

My sense of smell is driving me mad I smell things much more than other people. Just the smell of a Nartjie peel is enough to make me ill. Is this a symptom for something?

Hallo AJ
this could be a sign of increased hormones if you are female - many pregnant ladies complain of a hightened sense of smell. It may also be a sign of neurological disease like epilepsy or migraine! Please let your GP have a look and refer you for neurological evaluation if needed.
