|hi. I am trying to find out if what I am experiancing is normal or not. Lately in the morning when I wake up I have this feeling there is something stuck in my throat and it drives me crazy. Finally I will cough up this nasty yellow hard chunk. It smells really awful. If I squeeze it in my finger it does smash so its not like hard as a rock but it sure isnt like normal mucus. Its really nasty and I want to know what it is. If anyone has any ideas let me know.|
|these are called tonsilliths or tonsil stones - just google these terms and a lot of info will come up.
They are annoying but harmless from what I gather, they are bacteria that builds up on itself inside of your tonsils.
I freaked out the other night when I felt this hard lump on the side of my throat and soon found lots of these "stones" in my tonsil.
I am being super vigilant now - they can cause bad breath and are really gross!
I hope this helps.
