Drying the cords while sleeping

Please someone help me
I lie in bed and I start feeling my throat getting hurt by the air especially behind my Adam's apple. When I wake up is so disturbing because I know I dry my throat for 8 hours :feelsbadman:

    By the time I wake up, my throat feels like the Sahara Desert. Some might think it's because I snore, but I stayed up all night one night to see if I snored, and I didn't.

    You should probably have a bottle of drinking water by the bed and take a couple of swigs of water through the night if you can. Otherwise, you're going to do some deep breathing, maybe a little bit of snoring, and you're going to wake up dry as a bone.

    If I have an air umidifier it will be better? Because it hurts before I sleep, its like the air is more dry(it's winter here in Brazil), but my parents don't feel as much as I do.

    Winter is hell in an arid climate... the heaters dry the air, unless you have a humidifier connected to your air exchange system. Barring that, put a cool mist humidifier in your room at least and increase your water intake.

    Several factors can affect this 'dry feel' of the throat.
    do you generally drink enough water in a day? (about 2 litres or so).

    Keeping the environment at a healthy humidity is a very good idea in general. So go for it!
    I have a dry throat now and then, and sometimes i placed a bowl of water on the heater to humidify the room.

    All the best,

  • In the winter when the forced air is drying everything out, I put a bowl of water next to the heat vent. When it gets low, I refill it.

    Peace, Tony

    I drink 3 to 4L of water hahaha! I talk with my Physiotherapist (well-informed person) and problably is the acid reflex thing. I drink one or two glasses of water after lunch and sleep 30 minutes after dinner, I stopped doing this starting from now, if I don't comment in this subject anymore it is because it worked.

    Thanks everyone for helping me with that quickness :smiley:

    Yes, I thought about that later. Acid reflux does have a "burning" feeling that can be mistaken for a terribly dry throat.
