    well guess what, i finally got it out. Was drinking lots of water and apple cider vinegar. Somehow i coughed it out and i coughed out maybe 3 pieces. I smelled it and wow.... it stinks.
    If it stinks, like satan's anus, then yeah, in all likelihood its tonsil stones.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tonsillolith I can pick mine out by applying pressure on both sides of the crypts. It's quite relieving to get them cleaned out.
    I had no idea people actually thought these were dead leukocytes. Odd.

    Phatty, it most likely has nothing to do with oatmeal but you could TRY NOT EATING OATMEAL if you genuinely believe there's a link. Many people have tonsil stones with or without eating oatmeal so keep that in mind.

    I was at an ENT years ago for some reason when he plucked some out during the exam. I had never seen them or experienced them, consciously, until then. Now I get them every couple of months.

    anybody think it is fun coughing/plucking those little buggers out? i think it is as enjoyable and relieving as cleaning out earwax, snipping nose hairs, and taking out bellybutton lint.

    Wow, there are quite a few people on this forum with experience with tonsil stones. Does anyone know the prevalence of tonsil stones? From what I am reading here, it would appear to be higher than I had previously imagined...[​IMG]

    from the number of people who seem to have been afflicted, I am a little worried that they are caused by the style forum.

    i get these from time to time as well. i found that when i ate less dry, grainy, or carb-intensive food i got fewer tonsil stones. in general its not just oatmeal thats causing it but i could see how something like oatmeal could contribute to it.

    I had no idea these were called tonsil stones. I had always assumed they were made up of dried up phlegm, parts of food, and bacteria. They do stink pretty bad, and are a bugger to cough up. I use to have them quite a bit, but haven't felt one for at least a year.

    lol, yes they do smell like a putrid sewer of crap.

    i get these every once in a while, but i cannot feel it for days before i cough it up, just the hour i cough it up.

    i feel something stuck in my throat and i have to ahem and cough and then it pops out onto my tongue.
    sometimes i get big whole pieces, looks like a white yogurt covered granola cluster or something.
    i played with it before like disecting it to see if it is a piece of food or whatevers, it is not food, it is made by my body. it smells like crap.

    but oh boy, is it fun to cough those things up. i actually enjoy it, whenever i get that opportuniti y once in a blue moon it comes up and i start to feel it in my throat.


    epic post...

    btw, I coughed up a nasty one today, about the size of a pencil eraser. It was disgusting. I took a picture of it, but the camera had a tough time getting the resolution to clear up, so the picture doesn't capture the true brainy features of the tonsilollith

    I need to eat less white bread and white flour. Whenever I eat a lot of sandwiches with white bread, these things come back. I know now what the cause is... the result is pure filth

    I remember watching a video a while back of a dentist pulling out about a dozen globs of this shit from a patients mouth.
