My uvula is touching the back of my tongue. It isn't painful but uncomfortable. I'm curious if I should be concerned, and what could help it. Thanks. ?

In brief: Long uvula

We don't often see uvula's that so long they create uncomfortable feelings.
If you are concerned, have your dentist or oral surgeon take a look. This tissue could be shortened with a laser without much problem.
