So I had a little too much to drink last night (wet t-shirt contest night at a lesbian bar; it really merits a thread all its own). OK, a lot too much to drink.
Anyway, when I woke up this morning, my uvula was swollen to the size of a shooter marble. I’m practically gagging on it every time I swallow. I can totally see it in the mirror when I open my mouth, swingling obscenely like a fleshy pendulum. I’m seriously grossed out by my own appendage here.
Now, I’m asking for experiences and WAGs, not medical advice, and I realize that YANAD (unless you are), but…is this normal? How did this happen? Did I just swell it up by snoring all night? Did I irritate it with booze? Is it a gentle reminder from my body, saying “hey, you could easily have asphyxiated last night, buddy?”
Help! (gag) :eek:
