Waking up with a dry sore throat almost every morning?

Goes away after drinking water, so it is not like sickness sore throat.

Winter time btw.

P.S I always drink a lot of water even before bed time.

    Probably snoring or breathing through your mouth at night.

    Your throat got dry during the night. Drink a glass of water after you wake up in the morning. You might often wake up in the morning with a dry, sore throat in the winter time, because you're probably running the heat during the night, and the heat dries out your throat.

    Maybe you're a mouth breather and it's irritating your throat because of the dry air in the house? Just because you drink a lot of water, it doesn't mean your throat wont get dry over night.

    Otherwise, i have no idea what's causing this so if you're concerned, consult a doc?

    Ummm...maybe it's because you're dehydrated.

    You say that you drink a lot of water before bedtime, but if the problem goes away after drinking water, then it's logical to assume that the problem is that you're not drinking enough water.

    You need to drink water throughout the day - and plenty of it. The medical profession used to recommend a person drink eight 8-oz glasses of water per day - you could start with that.

    Do take a glass of water in with you when you go to bed and if you get up during the night, take a few sips before going back to sleep.

    Regardless, you also need to drink water first thing in the morning.

    Upping your salt intake a little should help, also. One of the many functions of salt is that it holds water in the body.

    Sounds like your house is dry. Run a portable humidifier in your room at night.  The noise can also help you fall asleep.

    Air in homes tends to be drier in the winter; home heating systems usually is cause. 

    You might want to try a humidifier in the bedroom. Don't overdo it, you don't want to turn it into a swamp and get mold growing, but I might help your symptoms a lot

    Probably post-nasal drip. Take Sudafed for a few days.
