Its so wonderful you figured out what was causing this horrible problem for you. I have this awful problem as well but still desperately searching every day for the source of it. My ENT says he didn't see any crypts when looking down my throat so I never really went the tonsil route. But I often wonder if that could be my problem and there somehow hidden. I am definitely going to try the same thing when I get home tonight and use a flashlight. When tryin to do it with the naked eye in regular light its hopeless, I can't see anything.
I have that same really stinky stinky feet smell that seems to fill up a room when I'm in it. People move away from me when I speak, and at work they move away from me even if I come anywhere near them. At least a good 50% of my day at work is holding my breath. Its so horrible this problem.
