I am a 26m and I currently live with my 16yo brother. I started getting tonsil stones about a year ago. They would appear every couple of months. Over the past 6 months, my brother has also developed reoccurring tonsil stones. Mine come and go every few weeks, and so do his. We rarely eat the same foods (i eat healthy, he eats poorly). We use completely different dental hygiene products (i use all natural, he uses normal toothpaste+alcohol based mouthwash) We each normally drink milk and water, and occasionally a diet soda. I was never afflicted by these tonsil stones until last year, and I assumed it was from poor diet and heavy marijuana smoking, both of which I have quit for over 11 months. When I went to see my doctor regarding a serious sore throat, I told him about my tonsil stones and he offered no advice. Any ideas on what could be causing these tonsil stones and what could be the solution? Thank you
