diagnosed with cryptic tonsils/they are bleeding
My family doctor has referred me to an ENT for my cryptic tonsils. The problem is that they can't see me until July 24th.
I am a 39yo female and have had problems with my tonsils for the last 20 years. My family doc told me years ago that if I came in one more time with tonsillitis she was driving me to the hospital herself, after that I would just not go to the doctor when they got infected.
So here I am, years later, they have continually gotten worse and I get the tonsil stones, now all the time. I started to extract them myself with a q-tip or tweezers when they become to large or stuck.
Now my left tonsil is so sore, it bleeds, a LOT, by the slightest touch or if I eat something that is hard. I bleeds for hours.
