Tonsil stones anyone?
So this is really gross but I have dealt with this problem all of my life. I occasionally cough up these pale yellow seed-like things. Actually it’s been happening more often. As a child I referred to them as “sinus seeds” but after some research have come to conclusion they are “tonsil stones”. They don’t seem to be harmful just really REALLY irritating. Not to mention embarrassing!! Doctors say there is no real cure for them. Some recommend getting your tonsils out but that seems like too much trouble and money wasted.
I have started to notice that it seems like I get them more when I drink lemonade or limeade. What would be the reason for this? Does anyone else have to deal with these nasty little suckers?
