Bad breath from mouth and nose 3 years don't know what else to do!! Please help

Hello,

This is my very first post here so please forgive me if this post is in the incorrect place.

I have been suffering from bad breath for almost three years now. At first I thought it was a dental issue as I needed fillings. I have a private dentist who is fantastic and understands my situation and is supportive. He has checked my oral health and I now have all fillings sorted. He has confirmed with me the problem is not anything to do with my oral health. I have spent countless amounts of money on numerous toothpastes, mouthwashes and toothbrushes and tried all herbal remedies to try cure this problem and nothing has helped.

I have visited my GP on numerous occasions and been tested for a few things. I have been confirmed with IBS and I do have problems with bloating often, I have tablets to control this now and I have it under control although certain foods do kick it off. I also have systems of acid reflux; I have tried around 4 different tablets to help this, none of which have helped the reflux or the bad breath. I have been tested for Helicobacter and this came back as negative and I have had an intolerance test to wheat etc and this was negative, also tested and scanned for gall stones and negative.

I have recently also realised the smell is more so coming from my nose every minute of every day. I have been given a nose spray form my GP as every morning when I brush my teeth my nose runs and I cant control it it runs for around an hour after I brush my teeth each morning, which I am not sure if this is the factor for my bad breath and bad nose smell.

Its become such an issue for me, at work, my home life I try to avoid going out with my friends because I am so ashamed I feel like screaming at my office I am not dirty I do have a dentist and I do brush my teeth, floss and use mouthwash because its so hard to get through the day when they are all covering their noses. Friends try to drop hints around me like oh I need toothpaste does anyone have gum and Iím going the dentist tomorrow. I do chew gum again a crazy amount to try cover this but I cant control it coming from my nose anymore and chewing the gum can kick off my IBS which doesnít help.

I donít know what else to do I canít take it much longer and I have tried to take pills to end everything because I feel so worthless I donít know how much more I can take without finding the solution to this or what exactly is wrong. I would be so so so grateful if anyone has any idea of what could be wrong. I would be so grateful for any advice.

Thank you so much in advance for any help you can offer.[/SIZE]

Hi there,
I am sorry you are dealing with this. This is going to sound strange, but I once baby-sat for a little boy that had a strange odor coming from his nose. His parents finally took him to the dr. The dr. I think used a lighted scope and found a rotten bean way back in his nasal cavity! Sorry, that's pretty nasty! You know how kids are, he was probably messing around and whoops! there it went!

Now I know you are an adult and I'm sure you don't stick things in your nose, but maybe something inadvertently got lodged in there. I think you should see an Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialist (ENT) and hopefully they should be able to see with special instruments if there's anything amiss in your nasal cavity.

Good luck and I hope you can get some answers soon. Keep us posted!

Actually, a sinus infection can cause bad breath even without lodged objects. It's worth checking, anyway.

The only thing I can suggest is that you brush your tongue really well to get all bacteria off of it. also, drink as much water as you can, in order to get things moving inside you. i don't know about sinus problems, but i think those suggestions steering you into the direction of a ENT specialist, may help. also, floss every day, and smell the floss to see if there is anything stuck in your gums that is rotten, an old piece of meat or something. so, 1. brush tongue. 2. drink LOTS of water. 3. floss around your molars and see if anything is stuck in there. floss EVERY DAY. good luck.

Replace your diet with more fruits and non spicy foods. Do this for atleast a month in order to get good results
