Tonsil Stones!

I know they’re gross. I have not had one in over 10 years. The other day one popped into my mouth and on the back of my tongue. Why would they come back? Does anyone else here get them?

I've heard of these but never had them before. From the article it sounds like the copious amounts of water I drink, plus regularly brushing and using mouthwash helps a lot.

Did it hurt, OP?

by Anonymousreply 101/08/2021

Ummmm they form continuously OP. You just need to clean your fingers and start massaging your tonsils and they’ll start popping out. You’ve probably got a load of them in there because you don’t regularly check for them.

Good lord OP, that mental vision of your experience just made me GAG

Is your breath terrible, OP?

by Anonymousreply 401/08/2021

If my breath stunk my partner would’ve told me so. I brush, floss and water pic twice a day. I used to get these as a kid and thought they were a byproduct of eating wheat bread! I had no clue what they were. I hate them they are nasty. And if you get them don’t ever chew them they stink!

by Anonymousreply 501/08/2021

I never missed a day of brushing and using Listerine -and I still got them. Truly horrible experience. I finally had to have my tonsils out -that put an end to them.

by Anonymousreply 601/08/2021

I only get them when I'm getting sick. OP, have you been feeling ill lately?

by Anonymousreply 701/08/2021

Yes I have had them and now have to battle them like crazy, I brush, floss, mouthwash, gargle with peroxide and still I get a buildup of white 'crud' in my tonsil so now I blast with a water pick every night. My tonsils are never sore and I touch wood never get tonsillitis or colds so no need to have them removed but tonsil stones are a bitch to keep away,

by Anonymousreply 801/08/2021

R5 YES! I thought it was undigested white bread when I was a teenager. One would fall in my mouth from time to time and that's the only white soft food I ate so it seemed logical. Then in my 20s I got a massive one that took me 2 days of poking with q tips and a tweezer to get out and..the taste and smell - the devil's ball sack after a 20 mile run. Horrendous.

OP it’s ok to post about this-we need to know whom to burn at the stake.

by Anonymousreply 1301/08/2021

They are formed by very small amounts of undigested food that get caught in the folds of your tonsils.

I have read that high sugar/carb diets can cause them to form faster.

I had a tonsillectomy in my early 30’s after years of getting strep 3 or 4 times a year. The health benefit was great but I was much more relieved that it was also the end of tonsil stones. Even when not swollen, my tonsils were huge (large enough that dentists and hygeinists regularly commented on their size) . So it was impossible to dig those things out of every deep fold where they were hiding.

Don't you get them from sucking too much dick, or is it not sucking enough dick, I always get that mixed up.

by Anonymousreply 2101/08/2021

Had horrible tonsiliths in my 30s and 40s. Then I moved and the pollen I was exposed to changed and I never got them again. Which is roundabout way of saying that allergies may have contributed to their formation. The only other thing that helped was a Neti pot, and slushing out my sinuses with some regularity.

Could be, I've never had one.

by Anonymousreply 2301/08/2021

Huh, I've never heard of these. But once in a while, I'll wake up with something at the very back of my throat which I have to swallow. I'm now hoping that they were one of these and not some gross bug, like I've been thinking up 'til now.

by Anonymousreply 2401/08/2021

I used to get these periodically, always wondered what they were. Like R9 i thought hey were bits of undigested bread too. Have had one in a quite a while since I started swimming regularly. Maybe the chlorinated water getting in my mouth is dealing to them?

by Anonymousreply 2501/08/2021

Can you eat them?

I mean someone else’s?

by Anonymousreply 2601/08/2021

I had them for a while. Dr had good advice—gargle with warm saltwater everyone you eat. Removes the stones and keeps areas cleaned out. The areas where they form will eventually close up.

by Anonymousreply 2701/08/2021

...gargle w salt water after you eat

You can try poking at your tonsils with a hard, squirting dick if you don’t have a water pik.

We were three people having a meeting in my office, at the table. I was reading something when, out of the corner of my eye, I thought I saw something fall from the mouth area of the guy, whose document we were reviewing, was talking us through it. He was a lateral level position to me, and our boss was there, too. I didn't say anything, but noticed he reached for a tissue.

A few minutes later, a foul fetor permeated my office.. I shifted in my seat, so as to raise my hand to my face in an attempt discreetly to cover my nose. The boss lady whispered something to Bob* and he rose and left. With Bob out of earshot, she asked me if I had any air freshener. I did not. So we opened the windows and door. Boss confided in me that Bob has tonsil stones and when one runs loose, they smell bad.

Bob returned after a few minutes. Not a word about this was uttered. But I never sat so close to Bob again.

*Bob is not his real name.

Ewwwwww R31! That’s a true story?

by Anonymousreply 3201/08/2021

I coughed up a HUGE one at the gym on the treadmill. It flew out of my mouth and stuck to the treadmill dashboard. It was the size of a big garbanzo bean. I also discreetly coughed one up on a date. Somehow managed to get it into a napkin then faked that I needed the restroom so I could flush it before the smell permeated.

I get a little one maybe once every 2 months that I thought didn't smell. I just checked and sure enough I had one. Got it out and smelled it because, you know, I had to. Sweet fancy Moses it was disgusting! I can't imagine what a big one would stink like.

by Anonymousreply 4201/09/2021

I get them too, and have for years and years. They are indeed gross, but I'll be damned if I'm getting my tonsils removed over them. I think it's mostly phlegm that calcifies after reacting with the enzymes in your mouth. I also tend to get them more when I have allergies or anything going on with my sinuses. Occasionally I will use a waterpik with a water/Listerine mixture and try to flush my tonsils with them. It seems to keep them at bay.

Good lord in heaven. These are like blackheads popped from giant open pores. Deep in the cake hole. I’m done for the day. Thanks OP.

by Anonymousreply 4501/09/2021

They seem hard to get out because you tend to want to just knock them off the tonsil, when actually they are in a little tonsil cave. Use a throw away skewer to push the part of the tonsil next to the stone and it will pop out. Yup, it's gross

Why the hell were there so many tonsillectomies back in the day? Didn't one of the Brady Bunch kids get their tonsils removed?

You get it because of poor hygiene. In other words, you are gross if you have any.

by Anonymousreply 5601/09/2021

My tonsils were removed when I was 4. It was common to have tonsillectomies/adenoidectomies done back in the 60-70’s, especially when a kid had recurring colds. Medicine did not consider them to be important at the time. They swelled and constricted the ability to swallow. Now, of course, medicine recognizes that they are important filters.

After repeated Streep infections had my swollen chronically infected tonsils cut out at the age of 21. Was done under a local I had just seen the film Coma and did not want to be put under general anesthesia. They strapped me upright in a chair. Injected morphine with a 6 inch inch hypodermic needle into each tonsil. The doctor then took a laser scalpel and like a arch welder burn cut the tonsils out. I was fully conscious I could smell my burning flesh. Luckily the laser cauterized the cuts so I only coughed up a little blood into the doctors glasses. He tossed the silver dollar sized bloody tonsils in a bag on to my chest..I was sent home and told to take Tylenol and chew ice. After three days in agony I went back to see the doctor. I was not only having trouble swallowing but breathing. I remember his look of horror when he looked in my mouth. Apparently I had serve acid reflux which was drenching the open wounds with acid as I sleept. They gave me oxycontin. Good times.

Don’t have them much anymore. But I did notice them when I was in an office and taking a lot. All of the sudden I would feel one come out and land in my mouth. I could also feel the air on the evacuated crater. That part was a relief.
