I have had sinus problems my whole life, getting sinus infections every year or sometimes twice a year, constantly having drainage in the back of my throat) and it was only annoying until a few days ago. Four days ago, I learned I had tonsil stones when I coughed up about 10 (no photos provided). I went to the doctor and she said it was because of a virus causing me to produce more mucus than normal. I was given a medicine and took it and the mucus amount went down a lot and I started feeling better and thought my tonsil stones were gone. However today, I coughed up two more. So, I decided to see if there were any I did not find on my previous visit, so I could make sure there were none left. I ended up removing 22 tonsil stones (photos provided to prove I am not exaggerating). While removing one, my tonsil started bleeding. I am not even sure if they are all out since I got the majority of those from one side of my mouth and my throat has hurt after both times I have gotten them out. Anyway, my question is, is there a possibility my sinus issues are linked to my tonsil stones, and would an ENT help me remove them since I have so many? Is there a possibility I have tonsillitis?
