Gas Smell - Not there

I’ve been on Dilantin since I was a teenager. I am now 48 & seizure free since on the meds.
The past few months I smell this gas toxic smell. However, my wife & family says there is no such smell in the house.
Anyone else have this experience?


Yeah, my child has seizures

Yeah, my child has seizures where she has smelled terrible smells that aren't there (olfactory seizures/ partial seizures). Your medications might need some adjustment or you might need to be re-evaluated if it's been a long time, etc...
