Having reoccurring problem with breathing, large white stones from back of throat, tonsil infection, ulcers. Tonsil removed?

Hi, I was wondering if I need my tonsils removed. I have been having a reoccurring problem with my breathing and large white stones from the back of my throat. I recently went to the Doc and he told me that I had a really bad tonsil infection. I had large white ulcers on my tonsils which the Doc gave me medicine for. But for years I have been having this soreness in my throat only on the right side. I also was given an inhaler because I began to have difficulty breathing. Do you think that this is because of my tonsils?? Or is it from something else. I have also been having really bad headaches and ear aches

Hello ..
Welcome to Health Care Magic ..

I read your query and it seems that breathing difficulties associated with headache and earache is due to tonsil infection only because of its chronicity .
If chronic tonsilitis not responding to Antibiotics and NSAIDS and if symptom worsens as recurrent infection manifest frequently per year then i will recommend Tonsillectomy to remove large white stone like tonsilar infection .

I also suggest you to have ENT specialist opinion before planning for better treatment .

Hope this Information is Useful to you .
Thanks & Take Care.
