A 28-year-old female asked:

Is there a connection between tonsil stones, bad breath and persistent globus sensation? (the globus is not bc of swollen tonsils etc- it is deeper).

Perhaps: Please see your Dentist to rule out a dental cause for your ad breath. Please see ENT to evaluate tonsils (which may be cause of bad breath) and to try to determine why you have what you describe as a globes sensation (something swollen in throat). You need these two different physical examinations to diagnose your problem.
