    Swollen Uvula

    I realize I'm opening myself up for a countless number of jokes but goddammit this thing is annoying.

    For those not in the know, uvula = the dangly thing in the back of your throat
    Mine is about 4x its normal size and can be found resting either inside my throat or on the back of my tongue. I woke up with it like this, had a few glasses of water and its not going away.

    What the $#@! do I do about this? It's really messing with my gag reflex. Any ENTs out there?

    I've had this happen after a huge night of drinking. It usually goes away late that day or by the following morning.

    I don't know if that's what caused it in your case, though.

    Swollen uvula - uvulitis

    At times, the mucous membrane around the uvula may swell, causing the uvula to expand 3-5 times its normal size. When the uvula touches the throat or tongue, it can cause sensations like gagging or choking, even though there is no foreign matter present. This can cause problems breathing, talking, and eating.

    There are many theories about what causes the uvula to swell, including: 1) dehydration (from arid weather); 2) excessive smoking or other inhaled irritants; 3) snoring; 4) allergic reaction; or 5) a viral or bacterial infection.

    If the swelling is caused by dehydration, drink plenty of fluids. If the cause is a bacterial infection, gargling salt water may help. A swollen uvula is normally not life-threatening and subsides in a short time, typically within a day. However, it can also be a sign of other problems. Some patients with a history or recurring uvulitis have to carry an EpiPen containing Adrenaline (Epinephrine) to inject themselves whenever the uvulitis begins. If the swelling has not subsided within 8-12 hours, or if it is accompanied by other symptoms (such as fever or pain), it is best to see your health care provider.

    Yeah I get that sometimes if I drank/smoked a lot the night before. I think it is because I was snoring my ass off on those heavy drinkin/smokin nights.

    I get this occasionally. Mine is an allergic reaction, most often to mold. It typically goes away the same day, though it can linger for a day or two. If you tend to breathe through your mouth, you are more susceptible.

    This is actually exactly what you should do (the benadryl part, not the sucking $#@! part). Make sure you're hydrated as well and it should go away.

    Oh, I'll be fine. The bachelor on the other hand, is the one who needs to step it up. The soon to be wifey is actually trying to make this a combo bachelor/bachelorette party. Maybe this is best man territory. Either way, it might very well be the worst bachelor party ever. Or maybe they'll be hot and naked.

    I had that happen in college. (No comments.) We hosted a huge party, and I got completely wasted. I woke up at noon the next day, and it looked like I had a golf ball suspended by a rubber band at the back of my throat. When it continued to swell, my girlfriend insisted that I needed to make a trip to the ER. (It was a Sunday.)

    Nobody there took me very seriously, but eventually, a doc came in and lectured me as to how I MIGHT have uvulitis, but it's normally a kid's condition. Eventually, he said "let me take a look", followed by a startled backwards push of his little rolling chair and (no kidding) a very loud

    "GOD DAMN THAT'S THE BIGGEST UVULA I HAVE EVER SEEN".

    He called every nurse in the ER over to take a look. After that, he gave me a Rx for some antibiotic, and I lived.

    It could be tonsillitis.

    Doesn't necessarily mean a tonsillectomy unless you get it often.

    I had this happen in January when I ended up with a sore throat and hacking up green and yellow mucus. The swelling went down after like 1 day but it sucks balls to have that thing resting on your tongue.

    I used to get this from sleep apnea from mouth breathing to not die.

    got a cpap machine wallah!!! no more swolen uvula.


    [ open on National Uvula association flash card ]

    Announcer: And now, a public service dramatization from the National Uvula Association.

    [ dissolve to Babs and her sister sitting in their living room ]

    Sister: Gee, Babs, you look like something the cat just dragged in.

    Babs: I know. I feel crummy. But I just can't seem to put my finger on what's wrong.

    Sister: That's too bad, Babs. Has it ever dawned on you that it just may be your uvula?

    Babs: Gee, no, Sis.. I must have stupidly glossed right over my uvula.

    Sister: I had a hunch you might've. That's why I made an appointment for you with a top uvula specialist. [ doorbell rings ] Who makes house calls! Right now!

    [ Doctor enters the living room ]

    Doctor: Hello, I'm the doctor.

    Sister: Hi.

    Babs: That must be him! [ coughs ]

    [ Doctor sits next to Babs on the couch ]

    Doctor: I won't beat around the bush, Babs.

    Babs: Is it bad?

    Doctor: In a nutshell, your uvula is on the fritz. Which reminds me of a little joke. Knock knock!

    Babs: Who's there?

    Doctor: Babs' uvula.

    Babs: Babs' uvula who?

    Doctor: I don't know, Babs. But I do know this - you've really let your uvula go to the dogs.

    Babs: Yes.. I have..

    Sister: I'd like to share this with you, Sis. [ opens a greeting card ] "To Babs: It'll behoove ya', to care for your uvula! Love, Sis."

    Babs: Boy, do I hear ya', Sis! From now on, it's strictly good, clean fun. For me and my uvula!

    Doctor: That reminds me of a little joke. Knock knock!

    Announcer: Who's there?

    [ Doctor, Babs and her sister laugh at the surprise interruption ]

    Announcer: The preceding dramatization was brought to you by the National Uvula Association.

    One time when I had a cold, I went a little overboard with hocking stuff up, and it stretched out my uvula. Tough to talk with that thing on your tongue.

    i had mine removed in 2000, along with my tonsils... i was snoring loud as $#@! before and was waking up with my uvula down my throat every a.m.

    allergies significantly decreased with removal, too... apparently, my $#@! was all $#@!ed up.

    Yeah, but has it improved your deep throating skills at all?

    Yeah, but has it improved your deep throating skills at all?
    No deep throating at all.

    I had my uvula taken out as well. I had a deviate septum that had gotten progressively worse after breaking my nose a couple of times. I snore less. Or at least my wife thinks so.

    For those not in the know, uvula = the dangly thing in the back of your throat
    Mine is about 4x its normal size and can be found resting either inside my throat or on the back of my tongue. I woke up with it like this, had a few glasses of water and its not going away.

    What the $#@! do I do about this? It's really messing with my gag reflex. Any ENTs out there?
    Every time I see this post, I have to take a second look to make sure I am not reading "Swollen Vulva"

    Is it any better now? The uvula, I mean.

    I think it is because I was snoring my ass off on those heavy drinkin/smokin nights.
    Everytime it has happened to me was when I was daruuunk.
