Thanks for writing in.

As far as the metallic smell in the nose is concerned, although some people do report smelling metal after they exercise, we need to rule out other causes first.

This can be due to a recurrence of the sinus infection or a neurological issue.

To let me help you better, please answer the following questions:

* Do you feel your sinuses are blocked?
* Any headache, cough or blocked nose?
* Do you have any other symptoms like increased forgetfulness, problems in walking, talking or sensing stuff?
* Do you have any tremor?
* Any kind of vision issues?
* Have you undergone any dental treatment?
* Do you have any other medical conditions that I am missing here?

Waiting for your reply...
