Uvula Touching Tongue

Hi everyone, hope everyone is staying as well as they can be.

I am 7 months into ME/CFS and for the past 2 months I have noticed my uvula is touching my tongue. I am pretty sure that prior to this, my uvula has never touched my tongue in my entire life (unless it was for a very short period). At first I thought it was a random event and will eventually subside, but now I am wondering whether is has any clinical significance - maybe reinforcing ME/CFS being a structural issue.

Thanks guys and stay well.

I had the same thing when I first came down with EBV (and developed ME). More recently, I experienced a lot of throat inflammation and a larger uvula and tongue. Tests showed that the EBV was active again.
