    Has anyone ever coughed up one of these little suckers?

    I coughed one up about 5 years ago and thought that I had some crazy disease because the smell of that sucker was FOUL!!! Now every few months I'll feel one back there and eventually cough it up.

    Maybe twice years ago, but not that big. Never knew what it was, and never thought much of it.

    I never new they had a name.

    Yeah, in the past I have had a few of those, always on the same side. When I felt one in my throat I would blast it out with a Water Pick on low power. Worked like a champ. Now that I think about it I haven't had one for many years now.

    I had one in my teens, thought it was a peanut that got trapped in there. Nasty smell.

    +1. I always heard of 'em called "Tonsilolith" or whatever, not a tonsil stone. I remember my Brother Sam, and Drew now that I think about it. Both of 'em had 'em. They called 'em "Stinkies". Sam found em first. He said something was bothering him a bit, kinda nagging and uncomfortable. He used the backend of an old toothbrush to basically pop it out like a pimple. Nasty, aint even the word. He got a big one out once, and dried it out on the dashboard of his Honda. I swear on all that's holy, I didn't make that up. It sat overnight or the next day, and it was stone-like. Effin sick, man. Seriously.

    Those pics aren't mine. I have never had one that big. If so I probably would be looking for some treatment. The ones I have had were small and I never felt it while it was lodged back there.

    I too had strep often when I was younger. I wonder if that has something to do with it?

    I've had one or two before....years ago. I think I read once they are more common among smokers. That's all I remember.

    I get then every few weeks but my tonsils are enlarged from many cases of tonsilitis. That and wearing a nightguard for grinding my teeth (compartment syndrome in both legs had faciotomies done but still some pain at night )

    Poke um out with my index finger and gargle no biggy.

    Maybe I'll complain to my pcm and have them taken out before i separate.

    I've had some bigger than those pics tho and yeah they smell. :x

    I don't know.... but having tonsils gets you the stink nuggets. I don't think people who've had their tonsils out get tonsil stones.
