PND: You might be suffering from a chronic post-nasal drup. This can be due to allergies or infection. A sore throat with or without a productive cough early in the morning is not uncommon in this condition. Ask your GP to have a look. Treatment differs based on the underlying cause.

Morning sore throat: Couple of thoughts. You may be allergic to something in the home, so that you’re being triggered overnight and not during the day when you’re out of the house. You may have reflux (GERD), which tends to be worse overnight when we’re lying down flat as opposed to during the day when we’re upright.
