Smelling Painfully

During a migraine, I smell everything, and even good smells are painful.  Somehow smells plunge into my brain like thousands of tiny daggers, piercing the most sensitive areas and overwhelming my already overstimulated senses.  Perfume, air fresheners, and cleaning products are some of the worst offenders.  Please don’t be offended if I must leave the room.  You don’t smell bad; just painfully.
