Regarding your response "“Thanks doctor. Sorry to be a pain. I have health anxiety. ". Its not a pain for me, its a question that alarms me to inadequately managed anxiety and ocd which may be progressive and debilitating if you are sitting there worried about fatal bleeding from "tonsil stone holes". Please seek mental health support urgently.
