I get them all the time as well. They such and I hate the feeling of having them in there.. always feels like I have something stuck back there. =/ Now I have a cyst on my tonsil thanks to an infection. Doc said it would just go away on its own if it doesn't bother me... but I'll probably end up getting my tonsil out sooner rather than later because they are inflamed often =/

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

OMG these are a thing?!?

I get them.

I'm in the same boat! I had no idea they were a 'thing' and I totally get them. Mine are definitely allergy/sick related.

No advice but I had issues with them several years ago, maybe 5-6? So gross and they drove me crazy, would dig them out with a q-tip. Haven't had any for years and not doing anything major different that I could attribute it to.

I had a couple of them before I got my allergies under control with the meds I take now. I would only notice them when I sneezed and one would pop out. Yuck.

Yep, I have had a lot of issues with them too! I don't think you are supposed to dig them out....but I can't stand the feeling, and they are often sore. So. Oh well. I find I have more issues with them when I have a lot of sinus drainage, I have a throat infection, or I eat a lot of crap.

And yeah, they smell atrocious.

Ugh, yeah, but I didn't know there was a name for them. Look on the bright side, next time you're feeling inferior to some drop-dead gorgeous model type, you can mutter, "yeah, bet she gets tonsil stones".

I gave up and had my tonsils out. One of the best medical decisions I've ever made. My food tastes awesome now.
