Tonight I found out that I have tonsil stones

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
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.

Duh!! I have plastic ones under my bathroom sink. I'm going to try it tomorrow. Thanks for having common sense, lol.

Dental picks help me get them the metal kind

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.

I've noticed that if I have a stone my throat had been sore stone goes away so does sore throat ;-)

Quoting Anonymous:

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.

Quoting crescentstar2:

I don't know but I hate them. They are irritating and hurt :-( I also use crest 3d mouth wash no alcohol kind maybe cause its peroxide it helps keep my tonsils clean

Quoting Anonymous:

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.



Quoting crescentstar2:

After my wisdom teeth came out I don't get as many. I've had one sense my teeth out .

Yeah I read that it was food build up and bacteria. It is extremely gross.

Quoting spooky415:

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.

My brother used to have them bad, so my grandma suggested he gargle with salt water. He said it really helps as long as you aren't sensitive to salt water and dont throw up lol.
The water has to be warm though.

Dh does a thing where he drinks crushed garlic, lemon juice and some salt- he mixes it all together and drinks, he says it works, but you will have to brush your teeth afterwards because of the garlic.

Mine are the ones that dentist use on your teeth when cleaning, they are kinda hooked but I straightened one so its as long as a tooth brush so I can see back there to get it out

I get them too... 

there are foods you can avoid to help prevent them and gargling can also help

Mine gets sore when I am in the cold too long. Which sucks cause I can't sleep if I don't have a fan on.
