Why is a sore throat worse at night/morning?

Hello all, I caught tonsillitis again (the type I have won't go away on its own, I need to take amoxycillin with each episode - but it generally clears up in under 3 days). One thing I don't understand about it all is why the pain is worse at night/morning?

I'm on my second day of the anti-biotics and the pain was torture this morning, as it approached 11am the pain noticabilly eases and I have a relatively pain-free, then as it approaches night (around 7pm) the pain seems to kick in again and I'm now due a night of painful swallowing.

Any idea why this is?

(not a major issue, just got me curious)
