Allergen?: If you are only having symptoms at night on a routine basis, then it is time to evaluate your bedroom for allergens... Do you have pets? Do they sleep on your bed? Do you have sensitivity to dust mites? If you are unable to find the culprit, i suggest seeing an allergist to determine what exposure at night might be causing your symptoms. You may also want to try sinus irrigation 1-2x daily.

Open Mouth +/-Reflux: It sounds like you may be mouth breathing during the night. Mucus flow slows when we are sleeping. This combined with open mouth will cause dehydration, color change and thickening of mucus, dry mouth, sore throat. You may also have "silent reflux" that irritates your throat and causes mucus production when you lay down.
