Yes this could be what you are feeling.

Sometimes infection can elongate the uvula.

However, this should get better, if it does not there could be continued infection.

You need to see a doctor as soon as possible to see if this is the case.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

Also: Hopefully this helps and I have earned a 5 rating from you today.

Anything I’m able to take in the meantime to help this feeling? Thanksgiving is tomorrow so won’t be able to go till Friday
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

If there is infection to this extent urgent care is a good idea.

We don't treat here, but to answer the question, many doctors would recommend trying a salt water gargle, gargle frequently, along with a throat lozenge of choice.

But they would want to know if you have an abscess or other infection first.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
