I'm choking on my own uvula over here

I have no idea what the deal is, but since I woke up today, my uvula has decided to be incredibly relaxed and is hanging down to far.

What causes this and how do I get it back where it was?

First tell her to get off your face.

Oh, you said uvula. I thought you said vulva.

hmm:

uvula ( P ) Pronunciation Key (yvy-l)
n.
A small, conical, fleshy mass of tissue suspended from the center of the soft palate.

Try flexing your soft palate... or just learn one of those fun languages that uses the ever-so-elusive uvular fricatives muggins was complaining about.

Worst comes to worst--cut it off... who needs it anyway

Put your tongue on the roof of your mouth. Now attempt to suck your tongue down your throat. You should feel the soft palate.

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

Why would someone pierce their uvula? I would always feel like gagging!

I had my uvula removed awhile back. It always surprises people when they don't see it (usually only dental related people get that far down).

I thought kvrdave was older than that Your testicles just dropped. That's a normal part of becoming a man. You just gotta get used to walking around with your uvula flopping about. Switch to briefs.

Why is your dentist looking at your uvula?!! Next time, don't get the gas!

A heavy bout of snoring will cause the uvula to distend and relax. Rough night?

I feel for you. I had a procedure a few years back where they stuck a camera down into my stomach. When the drugs wore off and I woke up, my uvula was resting on the back of my tongue - constant gag reflex.

The good news is it went away after a couple days.

if you're choking on someone else's uvula, you're using too much toungue.

Why? Was it related to some illness? Or did you just get sick of your uvula one day and decided it was time to part ways?

It's not far from the teeth.

At least I don't have Matta's dentist

(someone can post the link about the guy putting his sperm in patients mouths)

I was having problems sleeping-apnea, etc. So they ended up taking the tonsils and uvula out and doing some nose work. Deviated septum and turbinates trimmed.

Fun fun fun.
