Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
Having abnormal and strange smells, especially a burnt smell can be a sign of an underlying brain pathology. Problems involving the temporal lobe of the brain, such as temporal lobe epilepsy
(a subtle form of fits
) can often present with such symptoms.
In my opinion, it would be better to have an EEG (a test to detect any seizure
activity in the brain) and a brain scan done, to rule out any brain pathology.
Wish you all the best.
