my husband has had a heartache and he is now smelling things that no oneelse can smell, do they smell things that are not there
When you say heartache, do you mean a heart attack or angina? Either way, I am not familiar with a change in smell or a more powerful ability to smell things after either. Perhaps his physician can tell you more about this anomily.

It's funny you ask this.
I had a heart attack last month, and for the first 2 weeks after the heart attack I could smell things I never smelled before. I couldn't explain the smell or tell you what it was, but a few times I could smell something weird. The smells are gone now, or at least I can't smell them anymore.
Maybe the heart attack can mess with a person's senses? Maybe make you have either powerful sense of smell or smell something that doesn't exist???
I hope someone with a degree and answer this one for us.
