I have had this for a few years and mentioned this to my dr. Do they smell when they break them apart? He said it's from normal digestion. It usually happens to me when I eat alot of breads. I know exactly what you are talking about and don't worry, many people have them.
I've never heard of this before, but this seems to be almost the exact same thing I've dealing with right now. I had just posted here:
http://www.medhelp.org/posts/Respiratory-Disorders/I-have-had-a-horrible-smell-in-my-nose-Like-Fecal-Matter/show/933321 and this post sounds extremely similiar especially about the pieces of horrible smelling matter. I've been reading here all morning and many complaints about horrible smells are listed, but I hadn't seen a single one where it talked about the pieces of matter involved in them.
I haven't said anything to my husband about any of this going on, but I've been really worried about this being somethnig serious.
Do you have more info on this?
I finally figured out that these oddities in my throat are directly related to the amount of water I consume. If I am hydrated enough, I never get them. If I am dehydrated, I can be sure to get one. Now I actually use these little oddities to measure my hydration/dehydration. I went for years without getting one b/c I drank lots of water.
Mt daughter has them also. They are called tonsil stones. The doctor reccommends she use a soft tooth brush and gently brush the throat as tolerated. Listerine also helps. They are caused by food lodging itself in teh back of the throat.
Hope this helps
