Tonsil Stones Are A Pain!!!!

I've had a tonsil stone for about a week, and it won't come out... I can feel it when I swallow, but then when I try to get it out, I don't know where it is!!!

That's Gotta Be Frustrating!

Hi Kristina,

I'm going to make a couple of assumptions based on your post. It sounds like you've had tonsil stones before and that they typically come out within a week of when you first notice them.


When they've come out in the past, have they done so on their own, or have you had to do something to remove them?

If you've done something to remove them, what have you done?

Are you absolutely certain this is a tonsil stone?

There are other conditions ranging from relatively harmless to fairly serious that could be causing your discomfort. Your situation may well be worth a trip to the ENT to confirm that what's bothering you is, in fact, a tonsil stone and not something more serious. Your ENT may also be able to help you get rid of it.

Please post back with additional questions, but especially post back to let us know what you decide to do and how it goes for you.

Best regards,
Gary at KBBG
