    Salivary stones?? Need guidance please!

    I'm hoping someone can help. I'm currently 33 years old and within the last 20 years I have experienced what one doctor called salivary stones 4 times (this most recent time being the 4th). All four times my gland under jaw and swollen and whenever I ate I would experience a stinging sensation. It would go away within the first week, week and half. This time however will be my one month anniversary (ugh) tomorrow, and I am going through hell. I can barely eat, have lost 15 pounds because of it, it's just horrible. I've been to the doc 3 times and each time they said eat candys (which is excruciating), lemons, water, hot compress. I'm getting a white secretion coming from gland under front of younger when I "milk" the gland. I don't believe it is pus (no smell, sorta tastes salty). I have a ultrasound scheduled for mid feb followed by a meeting with ENT specialist. That's almost a month away and I don't know how I'm going to make it till then, does anyone have any advice?? Is there anything I can eat that won't cause pain?

    Also I should add that at the far back side under my tongue, I guess it would be around my gland, there is a large hard mass, however I am pretty positive it has been there for years and I just thought it was a bone, but now I'm thinking it make be the jackass stone causing me so much pain.

    Thanks in advance for any help, stories, comments, anything you can do to help
