Difficulty swallowing, long uvula, feeling of obstruction in back of throat

I have been feeling sick with cold/flu-ish symptoms for a couple of days and the past 2 days it has been weird to swallow . It maybe post nasal drip , but my uvula is very long and it is touching the back of my tongue . It is uncomfortable to swallow and before I noticed the length of my uvula, I thought something was stuck in the back of my throat.

Thanks for your query
I can feel your concern
You should be examined by an ENT surgeon , if definately this is the cause of obstruction then you would need an operation for its correction.

Have a proper clinical examination
Hope it helps
