could a sore throat in the morning and dry mouth be a sign of dehydration?

Yes or: You may be a mouth-breather when you sleep and therefore your mouth would be dry and your throat could be sore. Also medications may dry your mouth and irritate your throat. If you try hydration without success, see your physician for an examination.

Dry mouth and sore : In addition to dry mouth due to mouth breathing or medication, a sore throat can be an indicator of acid reflux. It is best to see your physician regarding this. A dentist may see the damage and assist in the diagnosis of your problem.
