    Uvula is sticking up.

    Hi there,
    I am new here, but have a question regarding the uvula to anyone who may know a bit about it. My own Uvula is sticking up and facing forward. You could even say it has shrunk in size. But the doctor told me it is resting on my tongue and not to worry myself over it. I am worried though of course as it often indicates neurological conditions. When I say aaaa my entire soft palate raises up symmetrically and my uvula goes up with it and sometimes straightens again whilst doing htat. I can also see it physically moving. I do suffer fasiculations randomly across my body but not all the time. They are just 1-2 seconds in duration and in a different spot each time. My doctor thinks it may be Reflux related. But he also said I am a bit of a mystery. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
