In brief: Get check up
Great job on taking such good care of your teeth and not smoking.
Make sure you are also taking care of your tongue and roof of mouth by brushing those areas as well. I recommend you get a complete dental evaluation and cleaning, as well as a medical check up to figure out what the cause of the bad breath is. Good luck!

In brief: Examination
Halitosos can be caused b y a number of different things, including diet, acid reflux, periodontal problems, and carious lesions.
You assume because you brush and floss that that is enough.. It is not. Visit your dentist to rule out any dental problems, and then your physician for everything else.

In brief: See your dentist.
Persistent bad breath can result from untreated periodontal disease.
Your dentist can diagnose and treat this. Some gastrointestinal disorders can cause your symptoms but you should rule out a dental problem first, especially if you do not seek regular dental cleanings. Cavities can also cause bed breath with no other obvious symptoms.
