Midwifery student , Mama to my 4 amazing kids.
I have been to the docs about 4 times with the same problem and everyone thst has said they have had em have had their tonsils removed, going back to the docs today. The first doctor said that i may have a cyst behind my tonsils in which a gunky stuff is collectiong in the crypts on my tonsils but the last doctor labelled it as acute tonsilitis, very confusing. I have been told to gargle asprin, gargle salt water and been on a couple of courses of antibiotics and nothing is working!! anyone got any ideas as to anything that may work?
