i have had this same problem off and on since i was 18. it took me a while before i looked in my mouth to see what was going on. i would just work them out when they bothered me. once i looked at the problem i found that i have a dozen holes that discharge and three that discharge heavy. so what i started doing was using a blunt tool like a pencil or such to press my tonsils and force these things out. cause i do it regular some times its just a milky white liquid that comes out instead of the hard nodules. recently i have started using my water pick on the lowest setting and placing it in the holes to remove any accumulated junk. i to have been told its normal and its just food but i tried cleaning out the pockets in my tonsils after meals and i still had the problem. i seem to get these things while i sleep not from food. no matter how much i clean them out if I'm going through a period in which they are real bad nothing will stop my breath from stinking.
