What Does Your Uvula Do
That thing dangling from the back of yourthroat, wiggling around if you breathe out with your mouth openâ€¦ what is ité Assuming you haven't been invaded by littlethroat monsters, it's just your uvula meaning â€œsmall bunch of grapesâ€� in latin, I guessbecause that's kind of what it looks like. That little bundle of flesh at the back ofour throats helps with four things that all happen to start with â€œSâ€�: swallowing,saliva, speech, and snoring. And humans are the only mammals that have them. The uvula hangs from the soft palate, thefleshy bit behind the roof of your mouth,
which mainly stops food from going up yournose when you swallow. It does this by covering up the nasal passagejust as your chompedup sandwich passes by. Parts of the soft palate produce a thick,gloopy kind of saliva to help food go down. But the uvula has its own brand of spit. Theinside of the uvula is packed full of glands that can quickly make large amounts of thin,watery saliva. These glands are connected to muscle fibresthat run through the uvula. When those muscles contract for example while you're speakingor swallowing more saliva is released. The shape of the uvula helps it swing backand forth, like a wet wrecking ball, spreading
the saliva around and keeping the inside ofyour mouth and throat well lubricated while you're chatting or eating. The muscles inside the uvula are also capableof rapid, repetitive movements â€“ just what's needed for complex speech and singing. They'reespecially helpful if you're trying to make this noise *purr* The uvula, soft palate and tonsils are alsothe first lines of defence against bacteria and viruses invading our mouths. If the uvula'simmune cells can't fight off the infection, it can get painfully swollen.
Enlarged uvulas are also found in people whosnore or suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, where sleep is interrupted by parts of thethroat cutting off airflow at night. The repetitive stress of each snore might be what makes theuvula so inflamed. A swollen uvula isâ€¦ unpleasant. It brushesup against the back of the tongue, usually triggering a gag reflex and making you feellike there's something large stuck in your throat, even when nothing's there. On the other hand, some people who don'thave much of a gag reflex get uvula piercings. It is possible to remove the uvula if it'scausing problems, and people actually manage
just fine with most of it missing. Often theirmain complaint is a chronically dry mouth and throat because that thin watery salivaisn't getting made any more. So even though the uvula does lots of differentthings, it doesn't seem to be vital for any of them, and we don't really know whythe it evolved in the first place especially given the problems it can cause. For now, the uvula remains one of many oddquirks about the human body. Thanks to patreon patron Rob Margolis forasking this question, and thanks to all our patrons, who keep these answers coming.

Feeling Worse After Treatment Maybe Its Not Lyme Disease
quot;I was always a healthy person. Always in the gym. Still am, when I can. And anytime something cameup, I was apt to see a because I always wanted tomake sure I was healthy. That's the gold of life. That's better than any wealthyou can have is your health.quot; quot;I had a lot of medicalprofessionals confused
with my health condition.quot; quot;I was feeling likesevere headaches, severe migraines,arthritis symptoms. I had a bilateral carpaltunnel syndrome release, which was unsuccessful. So he sent me to a Lymedisease specialist. quot; quot;He felt that itwas Lyme disease. I did the treatments and hewas getting ready to put me
on an intravenous pump forantibiotic treatment and that's when I started goingblind in my right eye. And that's when I thought, 'Wellmaybe this ain't Lyme disease, maybe this is something else.quot; quot;Come to find out, what I thought was Lymedisease it wasn't.quot; quot;I went to a neurologist and Iconsulted with an eye surgeon and that's when I wentfor an MRI and they saw
that I had a golf ball sizedtumor on my pituitary gland, which was crushing bothhemispheres of the brain and was wrappingaround the optic nerve. quot; quot;It kind of mademe feel disappointed because you would thinkthat a lot of people in these positionswould have grasped it or picked up on it sooner. But instead they felt thatit was all in my head.
And come to find out it wasIt was the size of a golf ball and it was a tumoron the pituitary.quot; quot;They removed approximately90% of the tumor and the medicationI'm on now helps to keep the growthhormone levels in check. If I would have been diagnosedsooner, I could have went on medication and shrunk itall together without surgery.quot; quot;I wouldn't want tosee someone else going
through the same thingthat I'm going through. I mean, I'm still here. But there's days when I can doeverything and anything and days where I can't evenget out of bed and if I was diagnosedsooner, I wouldn't be going through what I'mgoing through now.quot; quot;I have three childrenand a wonderful wife and I'm lucky to be here still.quot;
