hello and welcome to HCM,

You have symptoms of upper respiratory tract infection and uvulitis that is the swelling of your uvula.
You need to consult your ENT who may start a course of antibiotics along with anti inflammatory medication containing chymotrypsin to reduce the swelling
meanwhile avoid cold drinks and dont meddle with the swelling

hope you recover soon
