Body odor phobia

Has anyone here ever had something like this? Where you're paranoid about your own odor (whether you can detect it or not) and whether other people can smell it or not? I know it's been the major, debilitating aspect of my mental problems. I can't hold a job down or go out in public, closed spaces because of it. Everytime someone coughs, sneezes or gags I think it's because of me (almost without fail). Even though, most of the time. I can't even smell my own odor. It's really ruined my life. The worst part is I don't know whether it's delusion or not.
In a way, doctors are worse than Lawyers; Lawyers can screw you with your own stupidity. Doctors screw you with their stupidity.
