    Hmm, do you do a lot psychical activity during the day, or consume to meals (like candies or snack high in salt and sugar)? That can be a reason. How many glasses of water are you drinking during a normal day, are you reaching 5-8 glasses of water? Well in my personal experience every night before I go to sleep a drink about 20-30 oz of water. Another final question is your mouth dry? and saliva sticky during night when you need to drink water? I'm currently working on Dehydration.

    That's a good question. Not sure whether that is a medical issue or not. It happens to me at times. I take it to mean that I pay more attention to thirst at night. However, if you're truly, abnormally thirsty consistently or it's a change for you, that may be something to take to your primary care physician. Always good to rule out a medical reason.

    Perhaps you don't drink enough during the day and the relaxed state you enter at night finally reminds you to do so. wink try drinking more during the day...and no salty snacks before bedtime.

    I do not do much physical activity during the day although I do chase a 2 year old and have an 8 week old baby!  This has been going on for years.  I do not drink much during the day then at night I wake up thirsty and drink over a litre.  My mouth feels dry at night.

    It could be sleeping with your mouth open causing the dryness in your throat an mouth.I have this problem and I keep a glass of water with a lid and straw to quench my thirst when I wake. Good question.

    It could be that you slow down at night and are able to realize it. You could be on the go constantly, making you not stop and think, "How am I feeling right now?"... my suggestion is to drink more during the day and see what happens.

    It could be one of two things, either you don't drink enough water during the day and your body is sponge dry at night and begging for water, or your blood sugar levels are high. I'm diabetic so i know about that.

    Drink more through out the day. Cut out salty foods at night time and if you find the the air in your house is dry that could do it too.  But of course I am not a doctor.  So you should always ask your doctor if you have medical concerns.
