I just finished doing a sleep study. One was psg and the other was mslt? They were checking for narcolepsy, but my admitting dx was hypersomnia. Anyways, I know with narcolepsy you can have hallucinations, auditory, visual, as well as olfactory. I have had at least one of each. The one dealing with my sense of smell is more of a distortion though. What should be a very unpleasant smell tends to smell rather delightful. I think it's called eusomia. Examples are usually dealing with poop! I smelled bacon at my in laws and they said there was no bacon but was probably dog poop I smelled. The next instance I walked inside my house and I smelled a strong scent of pancake syrup...I don't allow that because our twins paint the house with it....it smelled delicious though. It was everywhere, the smell was. I told my husband and he said the only thing I could be smelling was the babies because he had just changed their diapers! The other instance was this morning. I woke up to the heavy scent of pancake syrup again. I told my husband again and he said this time itcould only be the litter box. After a couple of hours the syrup smell went away and the litter box replaced it. Can you have scent distortions with hypersomnia like you can with narcolepsy?
