Plaque buildup in throat?

I keep getting a feeling like there's something in my throat. I have managed to hack up a couple of these thing's that I keep feeling out of my throat and I believe they are little formations of plaque. I haven't heard of this before and was wondering what I could do to prevent this in the future or how to get them out of my throat easier.

Re: Plaque buildup in throat?

What you're describing is a symptom of reflux. I'm not saying that's definitely what you have, but maybe it's worth checking out.

Also look into tonsil liths or tonsil stones.

I was unclear as to where you are feeling something stuck... and where you hacked it up from.

If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.

Question Re: Plaque buildup in throat?

I Have Been Experiencing This Since I Was A Teen, I'm 23 Years Old Now, But In Middle School A Girl In My Class Had A Huge Pop Corn Thing In Her Throat It Was A Whitish Tan Ball In Her Throat, She Was Crying For Me To Help Her But I Didn't Know What To Do For Her .i Was To Young So I Told Her I Had To Get On The Bus, Years Later I Found Out That It Was The Same Thing I Had Been Having In My Thraot Only Hers Was Massive. When I Frist Started Exploring What This Thing Was I Smashed It And Smelled It(for Some Stupid Reason) It Was In My Throat I Was Curious I Guess, It Smelled So Bad I Asked My Mom What Is Was And She Just Shrugged Her Shoulders. I Have Scrapped Plaque Off Of My Teeth Before And It Has That Same Smell As The Big White Ball Of Stink In My Thraot So I'm Guessing It's The Same Thing Only Built Up And Stuck On The Side Of My Thraot. Another Thing I Noticed Was That If It Breaks And You Accidently Swallow Before You Get It Out, It Will Make You Feel Really Naseated(spell Check) Sick To Your Stomach. It Is So Gross, Do I Need To Get My Tonsils Out, Or Is It Just Going To Keep Coming Back Regardless Until I Start Brushing My Teeth Better?
