Does anyone have a problem with tonsil stones?  I am wondering if it's caused from acid reflux because I do have this problem.  I started developing tonsil stones about 4 months ago.  Not sure why they are developing all of a sudden.

Nope.

 

I live with GERD and i've never heard of any link between them and acid reflux.

 

However it is known that they are calcification of a cyst? I believe thats what it was. No known causes from what i was able to find.

I have heard people describe tonsil stones.  I have experience with my daughter's Eosinophilic Esophagitus.  creamy spots in the tonsils, bad breath, and she has coughed up chunks of ??.  Some doctor's said she had tonsil stones before her EE diagnoses.

The bad spell was from the white bloods cells (think puss) and the chunks fo WTF?? was actually food bits that had become stuck in the esophagus. 

 

My advice, get to an gastro doc that can figure out what tonsil stones are and make sure it is not another disorder that is so closely linked to Celiac.
