Wow guys! You have helped me sooo much! I have just discovered that I have "tonsil stones" Ive had them for as long as I can remember. Well today I finally "coughed up" the biggest yet, like an inch big! I decided to webmd it and google it and thats it! I was diagnosed with acid reflux 2 1/2 yrs ago, and diagnosed with lactose intolerance and an intolerance to red meat about 6 months ago.. I noticed that I havent had them in a while, recently I have been eating dairy (with the help of a lactaid pill) and boom! I had one grow and coughed it up! GROSS but true! I do get that nasty taste in my mouth, ear pain, throat pain ect when its growing... I wanna rid myself of these but not sure about surgery? But this one was huge and Im tired of them! Has anyone tried anything other than surgery?
I don't really have an alternative. I will say that I had my tonsils out as an adult and the surgery and recovery were rough, but I was NEVER sick again. I had tonsillitis 5-6x a year and now I have a head cold maybe once every year or two but never with that throat pain...
