Hello My Name is Nicole and i need help desperately

I have been dealing with this odor for 3 years. Went to many doctors had tests nothing. I came across tmau Friday after a very bad day at work. Its so weird my kids and fiancee and roommate can not smell anything but when I am at work I have overhead people say she stink everyday nobody talks to me I feel like a freak. I was so surprised to see people who are dealing with this same problem. The odor i give pff is fishy or sewage. I shower everyday I am not dirty this just so depressing… I also work overnights with like 3 people and they have not said anything. I even asked the girl I work with if I smell and she said she smelled nothing. I just need advice please. My insurance doesn’t kick in until February. Anything i can do would be helpful.

Hi Nicole so sorry you are experiencing these symptoms. NO you are not alone. unforturnately I have been dealing with the same issues for over 20 years. Working around other people sent me into a depression. I would go home for lunch and shower. It’s a problem with the bacteria in our sweat/how our bodies don’t handle choline appropriately. Try to use antibacterial soaps- Dial is best for me, keep alcohol swabs with you to clean up through out the day, especially wiping areas that sweat as behind ears. around your nose, your neck. Do a quick clean up not just washing hands but washing arms and face after using the bathroom. It’s a big issue with the hair underarms and groin. I try to keep those areas shaved. use baby powder and if you are able use a deodorant with aluminum H. Make sure you are washing your hair as often as needed. There are certain foods to avoid especially caffiene. Look up foods with choline-- we need choline and it is in most foods but our bodies don’t metabolize it correctly from what I read. I read stay away from egg yolks, avocados, certain types of fish. There is a long list but you have to determine what will work for you, When you get the chance to see your physician-- let him/her know you have an issue with body odor more so than the regular person. My heart goes out to you. It’s usually a dermatologist that deals with the matter as far as I know. I have excessive sweating and I sweat even just sitting still. I don’t have enough time to tell you how humiliated I have been being around others, who cover their nose, move away from me, I spent a fortune in different liquid soaps, deodorant, antibacterial products etc. So feel free to vent if you need to. you have to work on taming this thing it don’t just go away. Thinking of you, your careplace friend

On Nov 3, 2016, I was told I will not be getting a kidney transplant because I have blood circulation problems.i have tmua with fish like odor for more than 30 year’s.I have tried everything possible in the medical field with no results. Sorry to vet.

In my 20’s , I developed venous statis in which the capillaries pop and my skin darkens on both my legs below my knees and above my ankles.

I have a inherited kidney disease as FSGS and minimal change , two kidney disorders. At that time, there was no treatment for me because my blood was normal but I had proteinuria alot of it.

My kidney disease didn’t really getbad until 2006, then I was referred to a kidney doctor. He prescribed predisone. It didn’t work on me. It was supposed to slow down the disease. But my problems befan to appear in 2012, when I started to gain weight, I thought at the time I was eating too much, but I later discovered it was excess water. Because later that year, my legs started to leak water. I actually had to squeeze the water out of my socks and trousers. Then I developed claudication which causes pain on my calf muscles in the back of my legs. I would walk a few steps and they would seize up. I would rest a few moments and the pain would go away. Then walk a few more steps and again experience pain.

Then in February 2014, my kidneys finally failed and I was put on haemodialysis. Then I lost circulation in my toes, then gangrene then amputations in May 2014 on my left foot then my left leg below the knee in June 2014Then my big toe on my right leg, on October 2014, and theno the rest of my toes in Nov 2014.

By July 2014, I lost 40 liters of of water or 88 pounds of water through haemodialysis.

I thought since I had 20 other medical problems besides my 2 kidney disorders that I wouldn’t qualify for a kidney transplant. Plus I have 47 chromosomes.

But at least, I now know, I won’t be getting a kidney.Unless someone invents a cure for poor blood circulation.

Not every one who has a chronic kidney disorder will have the kind of problems I have had.recently I was introduced to a herbalist from China by a doctor friend from India, we have to fly from India where I went for the treatment to meet with the herbalist dr sale bashiru in China.just in about 3 months later I was cured of this diseases with herbs and oil I’m symptoms Free. But I was told tmua might be on remission that there’s no permanent cure. But at the moment I don’t have no odor.
