From your description, it sounds like you are experiencing an infection, which may be in your sinuses or in the back of your throat. Someone will have to examine you and perhaps perform a sinus evaluation (x-ray or CT scan) to make the diagnosis.
Several of my friends have experienced the same situation, and we have looked at several areas in the medical books....we suggest that you inquire the areas of the following: acute fulminant sinusitis by Aspergillus (aspergillosis) and Mucormycosis; mycetoma; *fungal ball (cavity of the sinus). You can go to http;//www.asca.com/updates/1-1/10c.htm and go from there.
Well, those diagnoses are pretty severe...
As previously posted on this forum, I, and many others it seems, have a chronic problem with this. We have all been relieved to discover that they are simply food particles that are trapped back there (I can't remember what those caverns are called, not very many people have such large openings as me). Yes, they smell terrible. I have finally figured out (sortof) which foods may cause this for me. Family Practioner and allergist recommended garglling woth salt water (never worked for me). After years of trying to dislodge and get rid of them for the day with various objects like spoons, I found the perfect tool. A simple plastic citrus peeler works miracles- It's safe, it's thin, it's curved perfectly. Oh I still gag occassionally, but it's worth it. Now that I am aware of this phenomenom, I can pretty well detect them before I breathe on anyone.
So dont let those little smelly yellow waxy pieces rules your social life!
