I suffer from severe anxsiety and stress I’m on zolft for it I have health anxsiety

Thanks for sharing clear picture.

Well, it sounds to be perfectly normal. No need to worry at all.

There is no sign of any infection/ no inflammation.

Please be relaxed and stop worrying.

Each tonsil is composed of tissue similar to lymph nodes, covered by pink mucosa.

Tonsils vary widely in size and swell in response to infection.

You have normal healthy looking Tonsils. Please be relaxed.

You are healthy.

Hope this helped

Can my tonsil stones cause miner discomfort sometimes?

Well, It’s common for people with tonsil stones to not even realize they have them.

Tonsil stones aren’t always easy to see and they can range from rice-sized to the size of a large grape.

Tonsil stones rarely cause larger health complications.

But, sometimes it may cause discomfort.

Please be relaxed. No need to get panic.

God bless you and take care.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
