Tonsil Stones

I had to stop both gluten and cashews to get rid of this affliction. Perhaps you are reacting to some other substance. I took a food sensitivity test which pointed me in the right direction. Don't give up.

Just an FYI - the post you are responding to is 6 years old. I don't think that poster has been on for a few years.

Wow! I had no idea these were related to celiac. I've had these since I was a kid. It makes me wonder just how long I've been celiac, since many of the symptoms I have, I had even as a child (only to a lesser degree). I'm middle aged, and it's a little scary to think that I've been sick my whole life without knowing it.

Where was it mentioned that it relates in any way to Celiac? I have never heard this.

 

Usually there is a criteria of 3-4 cases of tonsillitis or strep in a one year period for a Dr. to take tonsils out. It is MUCH harder on adults and there is a higher incidents of bleeding issues in adults. Also, they crypts often reappear making it not worth the procedure.

I haven't seen that "tonsil stones " are caused by Celiac. It's just people on here saying they have them. I think in any population of people, some will have them. So..... Let's do the math....out of almost 14,000 views of this topic - assume some are duplicates - maybe 1000? That means that out of the 13,000 people who have viewed this - 15? Have commented that they have tonsil " stones".

Granted that math isn't very good but...... Nope....I am not seeing a correlation. :)

I think people want to blame every physical ache, pain, illness, global warning and pet overpopulation on Celiac. The fact is, we all get different " illnesses" or " conditions" and so do people who don't have Celiac to blame.

The OP said, "I have read previous posts on the forum and realize that a condition that has plagued me since childhood called tonsil stones or cryptic tonsils is related to celiacs." 

 

I was just reacting to that post.

Your tonsils are part of your lymphatic system and the stones can be causes by a few different things.

Here is a really good read on it:

http://www.therabreath.com/articles/news/the-science-of-bad-breath/the-science-of-tonsil-stones-7206.asp

I have cruddy tonsils, but have found that when I maintain a regular exercise program, they clear up and are nice and clean and small. It takes me about 2-3 weeks of daily 30 minute walks on the treadmill where I break a good sweat before they clear up and look pretty again. If I don't keep the exercise up, they go back to being cruddy. The article in the link explains how exercise can improve your lymph flow and improve your tonsil health. ( I have never used the product in the link by the way, I just thought the article they wrote was a easy read and explained everything well)

    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
