if you heat with electric, i bet it is dry air! it gets me every winter
sleep with a vaporizer on at night to moisten up your air

I agree with Brooke~Lynn. I have this same problem. We have added a humidifier to our electric heat pump. It helps but sometimes I still wake up with a sore throat. I take sips of water during the night and that also helps. It happens to me all year.

Dear Maggie HB User
sore throat is a sign of too much of a chemical

After headache, sore throat is the most common symptom a body gives of too much of a chemical exposure of some kind. Without fever, right?

Winter time more prevelant? Could be that there is MTBE exposures in the winter more than in the summer with the cloud cover, etc. holding down the ethyl ether chemicals that are added to gasoline and to jet fuel. By any chance do you live in a busy area or live near an airport?
