Question: For the past week I have smelled the same odor no matter where I am. Smells like car exhaust. All the time. Never had smelling problems. This is totally unsettling. What might be happening?

Bad breath can be due to sinus infection or orodental problems like bad oral hygiene or dental caries or it can be due to gastric acid reflux or regurgitation.
Please tell me do you have any such relevant symptoms.
