Apparently, the persistent odor of burned pot stickers that has been plaguing me since my sense of smell all but disappeared, is actually Phantosmia. It means that my brain is tricked into thinking I'm smelling something that isn't really there.  It is either just a weird side effect of an upper respiratory infection and should fix itself  eventually, or I have a brain tumor. Either way the household is relieved they no longer have to wash the entire kitchen with vinegar.
