Ok I'm totally puzzled and looking for anyone who might have any idea what could be causing a very strange gas smell in my bedroom. Yes it sounds funny but I've had the fire dept. and a natural gas company come and test my house for gas and carbon monoxide...but they didn't find anything ...meanwhile I have headaches and feel groggy when my door is shut at night. The smell is kind of sweet but has a distinct gas oder to's very heavy or stuffy and room mate has also smelled it on occasion so I'm not totally insane......any information or possibilities would be appreciated as I am at a loss, but can not continue to live with it. Thanks

I'm not an expert but maybe you should check to see if there maybe a dead animal some where. They do have a similar odor. Good luck
