msolomon : I'm quite sure my tonsils are the trouble yes. I try to eat healthily, and i don't smoke either.
I understand that there are far worse things in life than that, but it prevents me doing a lot of things, mostly because it was the root of depression for me.
Thanks a lot, you helped me a lot, but I feel like going to see either a dentist or an ENT is going to be difficult, I don't quite accept the situation, I guess being a girl and 17 doesn't help :/

It could also be your sinuses. Sometimes mucus can form and just sit there, and you not even realize it. And yes, it does stink. I recommend buying a Neti pot, use it every morning and see if things improve.

Hey, hoooope: Stress will cause stomach acids to act up and give you bad breath. You're obviously stressing out a bunch. Everyone here has great suggestions. I'm glad there's a DH (good job) here who went through a variety of causes. I just hope you take some of the suggestions and follow through with them.

Try oil pulling with coconut oil for 20 minutes first thing in the am. I swear by it! It costs about $7 (virgin coconut oil). It can't hurt to try it.

southernnaturelover: Oh, okay, thanks for your answer But I am quite sure my tonsils are the trouble

PeaceOut001: I will, I just need a bit of time, i'll wait till I'm 18

sunshine809: I must admit it sounds weird, and I'm ready to use salt/baking soda or whatever, but unfortunately not oil x)

Thank you all for your answers

I have a question: how can you clean your tongue effectively?

Default Recently Cured

I have been suffering with bad breath since 2009. Had many tests done but just like everybody else they all came back negative. I had sinus tests, sulfur tests, GI tests, dental X-rays - just to name a few. I stopped eating sugar, gluten, brushed and flossed regularly. I have a clean bill of health. I even went to the dentist and had a tooth pulled because of it. This was not the cure.

Finally, I got dental insurance because of new job and decided to go back to another dentist for a comprehensive exam after which the dentis it was best to get a bridge to fill in the gap. This required him to file down two of the adjacent teeth in preparation for the crowns to be put over them.

One of these two teeth already had a crown on it from a pulp cap I had done in 2009. When the dentist removed the old crown from my teeth, I immediately started tasting something that I could imagine smelled like feces and putrid garbage. The smell was foul. The doctor told me that I had a massive cavity on the tooth under my crown, the smell of which was escaping as I talked, breathed deeply, had my mouth closed, etc. X-rays do not pick these types of cavities up.

The bad smell and taste was gone almost immediately. I have two temporary crowns on while I wait for my permanent crowns to come back. I went to work the next day and for the first time, nobody held their breath or stood far away to talk to me.

I have been looking for a forum to share this with other people who also suffer from bad breath of unknown origin. If you can afford it, talk to your dentist about having your crowns replaced. This insurance has been a godsend.
