What causes hanging of uvula on the tongue?

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here..My uvula is hanging on my tongue. This has never happened before. Does this have anything to do with an injection I received a day before, from a neurologist. It was a steroide with nerve block by my sciatic nerve.

Hello,

Steroids does not cause this large uvula. If you did not face this problem before, you need to see an ENT specialist to examine you first.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
