In brief: Bad breath
Consider the possibility of your severe bad breath coming from your tongue, gum, tonsils, other parts of the mouth or sinuses.
Oral bacteria can thrive under a continually-forming tongue coating of food debris, dead epithelial cells, and postnasal drip. When left on the tongue or gum, bacteria can produce foul-smelling sulfur-containing compounds. Remove bacteria and food debris from your mouth.
