Tonight I found out that I have tonsil stones

They are small yellowish white balls that come up from the back of your throat. They smell bad, too. For the last few days I have been hacking cause I felt like there was something in the back of my throat. Tonight I look and there's 2 white balls lodged on the left side, looking disgusting. One was kind of big so I took a qtip and took the big one out. The other one was too small and the big one broke off but I got some of it. It's fucking disgusting and now I don't even want to eat. I want them out so bad but I keep gagging and even threw up a little bit. I read that If I get my tonsils removed, they will go away. I do tend to have problems with them anyway.

Get Breath Appeal. It's a tooth brushing system that's more like mouth wash. Some how it breaks the stones down and you won't get as many. I swear by the stuff.

I tried, they lodged in there and I just gag and puke. I will gargle or wait for it to fall out on its own.

Quoting mishamama:

Take them out.

Maybe that's why I stopped getting them. I got them as a child and I got my first wisdom tooth pulled at about 15, the others at 25. Now I'm 30 and they just started up again a couple of months ago.

This is going to sound disgusting but I had really large tonsils. When I was in high school I noticed these gross white things in them...I freaked out and dad took me to the doctors.

Ugh. It was food. I had food stuck in my tonsils.

Mine never hurt...I don't think. I do get sore throats a lot , though. Never thought this could be the reason why. I use mouthwash daily, Scope alcohol free, also.
