What causes smelly feces?

For six months or more I have had a strange chemical type smell to my feces. I have excessive gas a lot too. At first I thought it was my diet and used to ask my husband all the time if he smelled that checmical smell too. He never does. I also seem to have that strange chemical smell in my nose a lot (and I've been losing my smell for some reason, but I can definitely smell that!) I'm starting to really wonder if I should be concerrned.
