Tonsil stones are the accumulation of food particles in tonsil crypts. Tonsil stones generally give out a number of symptoms such as a heavy bad breath, feeling of something stuck, metallic taste etc.
But another most common and severe symptom of tonsil stones is its severe ear pain. Yes, Tonsil stones and ear pain are interrelated.
Now you may get a doubt..
“My Tonsil stones are in the throat? Then why am I getting pain in ear?”
Tell me why, there is always only one common doctor dealing ear, nose and throat. (ENT). This is because 3 of them are closely related.
That means a problem affecting one of the 3 can eventually affect the other two things too. See Where can I get a step by step clear guidance that helps eliminate my tonsil stones?
The nerve pathways…
Yes, here comes the real reason. There are nerve pathways on the tonsil, throat that are leading to the ear. Thus if a tonsil stone on the tonsil touches this nerve of the ear, your ear will start paining.
Thus, the tonsil stones even being in your throat, start causing a severe ear pain. See Do tonsil stones go away on their own?

True story: Strange feeling in my left ear – it feels like I have glue in it or something and when I move my jaw or swallow it feels like something is brushing against my inner ear.
Sometimes, you can even have clogged ears because of tonsil stones. You will have a feeling like there is some glue present in your ear. This feels like a tonsil stones ear pressure.
Many people in such a case start poking their ears just causing the damage to the ears.

It’s your Mucus and Post nasal drip.

So this mucus travels even to ear and feels make you feel like your ears are clogged.
Thus, In such a case your ear pressure is because of your mucus and post nasal drip and not your tonsil stones. See Are my tonsil stones because of post nasal drip? What to do?
