Hi there fellow steemians. Let me share you my first "Tonsil Stone" experience.
It was very annoying, irritating, and can lower your self-confidence. It started when I felt something stacked in somewhere part of my throat. The feeling was something like a fish bone caught up and hanging at the wall of my throat. It is not that painful, but I tell you, it’s irritating. Then it started building up odor. Brushing teeth and mouth might help, but not for long. It smells like… “you know what I mean”. If you know the meaning of STENCH, that is the exact word for it.
Afterwards, my wife also notice the smell and I also started to feel the bump on the upper right side of my neck where the tonsil is located which tells me there is definitely something is building up in that area. At first, I thought I have a cancer, but I tried to justify the symptoms in some other way and I concluded it’s not a cancer, Thank GOD.
So, I came up with this self-medication method (I don’t recommend it but you can try with cautions), I begun to massage the bump part very gently while looking at the mirror with mouth widely open to see the tonsil part. And after a while, a hard yellowish thingy was showing up on that portion. I thought it might slip back from where it was holding, I hurried and added more pressure on massaging the bump area. And finally, the tag of war ended and the big smelly thingy came out.
“WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGE AHEAD”
As a result, the stench odor gone for good. Well of course, I got my self-confidence back and I am me again. But I know it will come at another time for sure, “WHY?” I think this is the answer and might help us in the future, click the link below.
