Dry mouth, feeling of something stuck in throat, vomiting, swollen uvula. Treatment?

I woke up last night with a super dry mouth and went to drink some water. At the time I thought there was somthing caught in the back of my throat and couldn t get it out and ended up throwing up alot. Well after that I looked in the mirror and discovered that the uvula was super swollen and is still swollen this morning. How long should it stay swollen for and what can I do to make the swelling go down
