You probably haven't had many conversations about your uvula. You know the little punching bag at the back of your throat. Well yesterday I woke up with a swollen uvula and it was really weird. I could feel it laying on the back on my tongue. It was even making me talk a little weird. I don't have a cold or anything and it didn't hurt. I wasn't about to check WebMD because it would probably signal my certain demise.
Today I am fine but it was really weird. Maybe I slept with my mouth open or something. One co-worker thought maybe a spider crawled in and bit me. That I can't even think about. Has this ever happened to you?
Now let's discuss uvula heath.
