Can a tonsil stone cause slight sore throat or that side, painful ear, slight loss of taste and globus hysteria?

Tonsils: Your question was cut off. Tonsils can get "tonsilar Crypts" in them, which is like 'craters in the moon." These are places where food can get stuck, cause "stones" and bad breath, etc. If you are getting chronic discomfort and white areas, it is best to see an ENT (Ear nose and throat) specialist to evaluate you and treat you best. Best wishes. ...Read more
