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.

? Mouth breather: during your sleep, which causes dryness of your throat hence the symptoms, you may want to an ENT specialist to help you out, best wishes
