Sounds like you may be experiencing nasal obstruction, forcing you to mouth-breathe at night.  You might also want to consider measures to increase the humidity of your bedroom, but the first thing to do is to have your nose examined and, if obstructed, have it treated either medically or surgically.

Good luck.
