Acid reflux? I've had it before. Waking up with a very sore throat early each morning and coughing up greeny brown phlegm comes up in hard lumps

In brief: Sinusitis

Coughing up sputum and a morning sore throat are typical of sinus inflammation from a viral upper respiratory infection or bacterial infection.
Please see your primary care doctor to see if an antibiotic should help.
