Lumps In The Uvula And Snore During Sleep?
Hello, I want to ask. R nAbout 6 months ago I had a sore throat. It hurts when talking or swallowing food. At night I could not sleep because my breathing was disturbed and I unconsciously snored. Even though before he had never snored while sleeping After a week of inflammation I recovered. R n r nBut since then, I feel uncomfortable with my throat. Every time I eat oil-containing foods, the palate of my throat seems like fat is uncomfortable. R nAnd every time I drink or eat food, it sometimes comes out of my nose, even though I’m not choking at all. R nI guess what yes? r n r nThank you in advance
Hello! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Snoring is the sound produced by vibrations in the upper airway area when a person breathes. Sometimes, people who snore get less quality sleep, so they can not be optimally active during the day. Snoring can be a sign of a blockage in the airway, ranging from disruption in the nasal region, disruption in the roof of the mouth, obstructed part of the tongue, or a disturbance in the tonsils with or without interference with the uvula. The uvula is a pharynx that hangs in the middle above your tongue at the back of your mouth.
It may need to be considered again, whether you see is a lump in the uvula or uvula you experience swelling. Swelling of the uvula can occur due to inflammation of the uvula. Inflammation can cause the ability to swallow to be disturbed. In addition, the process of breathing can also be disrupted if the swelling that occurs is quite severe. This breathing disorder is what causes you to snore. If when you look in the mirror, you do notice a lump in the uvula or disruption in the tonsillar region, you should immediately consult a specialist ENT doctor. The doctor will examine whether there are lumps and how to treat the lumps and symptoms that you experience. Swallowing disorders that you experience may also indicate an abnormality in the upper airway area associated with the digestive tract. ENT doctors have special tools to see this area more clearly, so that the disturbance you experience can be more clearly seen.
In the meantime, try to eat softer foods. Reduce your weight if you are overweight. Avoid alcohol consumption and smoking. Make sure you drink enough water. If you feel pain when drinking, drink it little by little with a frequency more often than usual. You can tell if you drink enough if your urine is clear or light yellow. When sleeping, try to face to one side and not sleep on your back. This can reduce snoring.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
