so I've got history of acid reflux and a feeling of food getting stuck in my throat for about 8months.
I've had another topic oened for acid reflux for awhile, done gastroscopy, ate pills for reflux...but now I'm beginning to think since I'm off my pills for about 2 months it wasn't really reflux, neither inflamed throat that's causing my problem of eating, but it was TONSIL STONES all the time! I didn't notice it until they began to show more constantly and I noticed that when I didn't find any in my mouth for about 2 weeks I was able to eat normally without a feeling of food being stuck in my throat, but when they showed all those problems started. My doctor obviously didn't think about it, cause back then I didn't give it much attentionand I didn't even mention it to my doctor, but then I did a little research on the net and I see it's getting worse now and all the treatments I had might have been for nothing since I didn't really have reflux (which my doc later also confirmed me twice), but those things were left untreated.
So my question to those experiencing this, did any of you find some natural remedy to get rid of them? I had asked an online doc about it and he wrote me I should have endoscopy done, but I dont really see a point in it since I had gastroscopy about 2 months ago and all I got back was inflamed throat and I had to take pills for reflux for another month (I guess for nothing since I didn't really have it, or at least in a worst condition)
now I'd appreciate any of you telling me your opinion what should I do? I know that if I go to my doctor she'll most probably send me on surgery to have my tonsils removed, cause as I understood there's no really any medicine to get rid of those annyoying white 'things' (from reading online) or is it?
You know I wouldn't be stressing about it so much, but I'm already on antidepressants and last 2 weeks it's so bad that I won't eat anything much from solid food, cause I always have a feeling of it sticking there on the right side of my throat and staying there for days..I have it now and it's been so for the last 2 weeks. And I guess its not the food, cause I ate toast and stuff and since this stuff is harsh to swallow whatever food would be stuck there should be 'pushed' further down by the food I ate, isnt it so? So my last guess is there are tonsil stones back there, cause about 5 days ago I had one IN my left tonsil and I tried gagging and stuff and got a few pieces of them out. There was practically a 'hole' in my tonsil and still I could get it all out.
Also I was thinking anyone having this, how often did you get the stones? cause so far I noticed there was a moth gap and in between I was able to eat normally for about 2 weeks.
So please once again, anyone with problem like this advise me. I'd really appreciate it, cause I'm going nuts with this feeling of 'food' being stuck in my throat and I keep thinking about it for days when it doesnt go out and keep swallowing and it doesn't help and it's so irritating and it's not helping my depression any better, cause I keep on panicking about it.
