Re: Tonsil stones or food?
You might get a better response under the ear, nose and throat topic section. I had these for years and finally had a tonsilectomy 7 years ago. While I'd been told by a family practice doctor once that it was just food, I'd begun to notice that after I'd get a really bad sinus type headache that my tonsil stone production would increase. My ENT told me that all that nastiness went very deep -- my tonsils were golfball sized and FULL of it. So seriously doubt it was food.
My main concern was that I'd gargle with salt water, use a q-tip to extract them -- was very concerned with bad breath -- and my tonsils were starting to bleed. I was worried somethine was seriously wrong with me.
