My sister has tonsil stones that cause her an immense amount of pain. She has tried every home remedy and gets no relief. She has a constant sore throat and bad breath. She's in pain on a regular basis and very embarrassed about her tonsil stones and how visible they are in addition to her bad breath. She's seen a doctor for it, but they said insurance wouldn't cover her to have her tonsils removed for tonsil stones. I find this hard to believe seeing that she is constantly at the doctor about this and feel as though surgery is her best solution.
