    Ew I have the worst tonsil stones.

    Plus a sore throat. With the tonsil stones and sore throat they're making my tonsils very infected and hard to breathe. D:

    I have always had really big tonsils ever

    since I was little and I would have constant sore throats and had strep 3 separate times back to back in one summer. It was awful. When I turned about 15 I started getting these horrible little foul smelling balls accompanied with horrible bouts of nausea and I had no clue what...

    Anyone have any luck getting rid of them?

    :/ I haven't got these in a good 6 months, woke up this morning with quite a few. Thinking it's due to stress. Anyone know how to get rid of them? I've never seemed to have any luck

    Actually my teenage daughter has suffered much

    with tonsil stones. At first, we discovered that drinking water with 1/8 tsp baking soda, will help the tonsil stones to fall out on there own (drink at bedtime on empty stomach). After 1-1/2 years of being tonsil stone free, she began to get them again. She had them...

    I Have Tonsil Stones!!!

    About six months ago my tonsils felt sore, so I asked my boyfriend to flash a flash light down my throat so I could look at them. I looked in my throat and noticed white bumps. I thought I had strep throat. As I moved around in my mouth, the bumps started to move and like suck...

    I'm 15 and I've had tonsil stones

    for about 3 years now. As of this moment I have got a real nasty one about the size of my pinky nail. I went to a medi clinic to get it checked out but once we got there the stone was in my tonsil under a flap, the doctor couldn't see it. I've come there once before for the...

    Tonsil Stones

    I've had tonsil stones for many years. I got my tonsils removed but the problem persisted. Gargling with a mix of water and vinegar helps a lot. I also use a nasal irrigator but the vinegar works wonders.

    I Have Tonsil Stones

    I've had this problem since I was 5 or 6; I'm 45 now. I've had my tonsils taken out twice, if you can believe that! Supposingly, they grew back, so the doctors say. I have no tonsils on the sides of my throat, but I still have a pocket down in the back of my throat that holds the...
