There are several possibilities here, all of them potentially LIFE THREATENING AND IN NEED OF IMMEDIATE ATTENTION.

1) You may have an abcess forming that needs to be treated before it potentially threatens to obstruct your breathing.

2) You may be having an allergic reaction to something and again, it may obstruct your ability to breathe.

It may be nothing of great concern, but until you are evaluated by a professional. HOW ARE YOU GOING TO KNOW? You need to be seen by an otolaryngologist (Ear, nose and throat specialist, or at the very least by an emergency room physician.

I disagree with the above answer. I used to have a swollen pallet that practically touched my tongue but it would clear up as the day went on. It was caused from snoring. It turned out that I had sleep apnea and sometimes I would snore so hard that it caused my pallet to swell. It was a weird feeling too as it felt as though I had something stuck in the back of my throat.

If your problem is not happening upon waking in the morning then I would probably follow the advice above and get your butt into seeing a doctor quick. It could be nothing but why wait and take the chance??
