Tonsil stones: Masses of keratin (the internet is wrong about their composition) accumulate in some folks' tonsils. Most of us hack the smelly little "tonsilloliths" up without realizing it, but they can scrape around and invite bacteria into the injuries.

Next, bolster your salt intake to 2x what you normally take. ...Read more

Glaucoma usually causes painless vision loss over a long period of time & the visual field ceases to exist (like trying to see your hand from the back of your head).
You're describing 'flashes' due to irritation or excitement of your retina (the film in the camera of your eyes).
Although very common, some people have a risk of retinal detachment. See an ophthalmologist to have a dilated exam. ...Read more
