thanks for your query.
your problems are mainly due to collection of mucus in throat and nasal congestion which usually happens after lying supine for a longer period of time.i would suggest you to do gargles twice a day,use nasal saline drops to avoid congestion ,try to keep your head elevated while sleeping by using extra pillow.
