Doctor insights on:
Tonsil Stones Feeling Of Something Stuck In Throat
Stuck: Because something is stuck deep in the throat. See ENT doc to consider tonsillectormy.
Tonsillar infection: Stones can persist for long time periods in tonsillar crypts. They should not create the feeling that you are describing. If this persists you should be examined and find out exactly what is going on.See 1 more doctor answer
Can tonsil stones cause a feeling of obstruction in the throat and can it make it hard to eat solid foods?
No: The presence of bacterial colonies or food particles in the crypts of the tonsillar surface erroneously called tonsil stones should not by themselves cause obstruction in the throat. However, if the tonsils are very large, then with or without these above stated problems on the surface of the tonsils, you would be obstructed and have difficulty swallowing.
Feeling of incomplete swallowing. Tightness in throat. Large tonsil crypts & sometimes tonsil stones. What could cause these symptoms?
See below: It sounds as if you have chronic tonsillitis and may need them out.
IT CAN: The tonsilith, or tonsil stone can cause irritation and pressure. Best to see your otolaryngologist for evaluation.
My throat is too sensitive I offen get tonsil stones n pain too I m non smoker/drinker, My tonsils r small I don't eat spicy. Y I've always throat prob?
You might: Have gastroesophageal reflux with throat irritation. Get to an ENT surgeon. He can pass an endoscope and give you an accurate diagnosis and proper treatment.
Remove them: Get a penlight and a mirror and half-unbend a paper clip. You'll get good at it. This works wherever the little smelly things have gotten lodged. If it's truly a nuisance, a otolaryngologist can laser-resurface your tonsils.
My boyfriend has bad breath and little white things in back of his throat. Could these be the tonsil stones, and what do we do about it?
See the doctor: There are many things that can cause halitosis, and since this appears to be a change in the way his breath usually smells, and because of the whiteness that you see in the back of the throat, he should see his doctor to be evaluated. Although these are not likely to be tonsil stones, they do need to be evaluated. Good luck.
Can tonsil crypts (holes) from having tonsil stones cause you to bleed to death? Seeing how it is a hole in your throat. Mine hurt now and then.
Just a nuisance: It would be extremely unlikely to have any significant bleeding from tonsil stones. This is a common problem with irritation, discomfort, and mild bleeding at times. See an ENT for guidance on management of tonsil stones and consider tonsillectomy in some cases.
I noticed some tonsil stones in my throat. How should I remove them.? I tried with qtips but I gagged so much I couldn't even touch it. Can they go
Tonsil debris: The tonsils have many folds and crevices that can allow material to be trapped in there-sometimes leading to symptoms such as bad breath or a scratchy throat feeling. You're right about the gagging -it can therefore be an issue to remove them. I recommend a water pistol, or a plastic ziplock bag with a hole in it. If that doesn't work see an ENT. Sometimes tonsils have to be removed for recurrence
My right tonsil is larger than my left. I have tonsil stones in the left one. My throat doesn't hurt and I am not sick. I have taken some pictures.?
Can tonsil stones cause a dirt-type taste in the back of your throat more so when swallowing for 1+ years constantly? (just about every day)
My uvula is sticking to my tonsil and I can feel it in the back of my throat I also have several craters and tonsil stones keep coming...what do I do?
Need to examine: The symptoms you described warrant examination by an ENT doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.See 1 more doctor answer
