No: The bad breath is not due to prior infection with mycoplasma. You need to be thoroughly examined first by a dentist for gum disease, and then by an ENT for sinus disease, and possible by a GI doctor for esophageal diverticulum. Ideally your pcp may be able to screen you for all of these. Discuss with them first.
