I have throat pain when I wake up. Is it because I am positioning my head the wrong way when I sleep?

In brief: Acid reflux?
If you have acid reflux, a sore throat is a very common symptom upon waking.

In brief: Acid reflux
This is likely related to acid reflux.
You may want to try some Zantac (ranitidine) or Prilosec at night before you go to bed. You may want your local ENT to look down your throat with a camera as well.
