In brief: Other sources

You may have sinus problems, or stomach problems.
Don't limit halitosis to just your mouth. That is just where the odor is coming from. Although many times is a dental or hygiene problem.

In brief: Very common.... :-((

You had mentioned " good oral hygiene" .
Unfortunately this term does not exist in the world of odor producing bacteria in your mouth... I sometimes ask my patients if they can explain to me the difference between "car wash" and "car detailing" .... So to get rid of bad breath- you need " mouth detailing" and not " mouth wash" . We do full mouth detox for bad breath elimination.

In brief: Sinus problems

Sinus congestion or low grade infections can cause bad breath.
It would be good to have an ENT doctor look at your mouth and check your sinuses.
