So after a fun filled night after drinking, I woke up in the morning to find myself with a swollen uvula. And once awake, i was gaging on it almost enough to make me throw up.
Turns out(after some looking tinto it online), that heavy drinking, dehydration, snoring, and allergic reactions were all general causes. Well, I wasn't having an allergic reaction to anything, but I had been sleeping all night with my mouth wide open and head back; so my mouth was overly dehydrated, as i snored, after a night of lots of alcohol.
The thing was massive too! Probably a good 5, if not even a grand 6 times its normal size.
Anywho, knowing we lots of members that love the consumption of alcohol, I was wondering if any of you had ever run into this issue?

Never once. I have suffered from lack of swelling in another area though.

Ah, that blows...or doesn't...

Don't know what an uvula is, but recently something on my finger kept on growing into something nasty and bleeding. In the end when I discovered that some of my fingerflesh was turning white and bloodless i decided to dig it all out with a toothpick! It worked, but boy was it bleeding. How are you people! I'm not at a period in time with much i-net access, so see you in the future sometime.

Your uvula is the little dangly thing at the back of your mouth.

The boxing ball? Well, just make sure you drink 2 glasses of water before you go to sleep (or take some large gulps from the tap), and sleep on your side, that way you'll drool all over your pillow, and you can lick it up when you wake up dehydrated!

On a related note, this morning, my girlfriend woke up, and said to me "Hey, I'm getting up." and I said "Okay, then I don't need your scarf anymore." and she said "What did you need my scarf for?" and I replied "To fight the forces of evil.". In my sleep, I must be a superhero.

That would explain the shadowy, pony-riding, scarf-wearing newcomer who showed up, beat up the mad scientist, gift-wrapped him for the police, and left mysteriously, at that epic battle last night while I was busy fighting off the army of giant evil zombie ninja robots. Goblin superpowers prevailed, but a mystery remained...
Giant evil zombie ninja robots are not to be laughed at. They're the size of skycrapers, but possess the stealth of Santa Claus and the brain-sucking power of a thousand zombified black holes.

This night, I fought legions of generic ninjas attacking my base, and at one moment, I fought Cyrax, broke off his arm, and started beating everybody up with that arm.

Just take it from experience and never vow never to use your powers for evil. A lot of superbeings I know could tell you stories. Crovaxman, for example, made that mistake, and ended up feeling very creatively restricted when he joined the forces of evil. I think he's still seeing that psychiatrist...
