same story here. although I think I had a small amount of odor my whole life, I went through a tramatic time when my mother was dying of cancer. it is since then that my odor has been bad (about 5-6 years). I started having anxiety attacks from outta nowhere but once I realized what it was I was able to get more control over the attacks. the odor still lingers though. I think there is a connection between stress/anxiety and the odors.
