Hi. There may be two things going on here
You may have a problem with gastric acid reflux causing the throat problem and that may also be what's causing you to wake up during the night, but you may also have a sleep apnea problem.
You could try a week of daily Prilosec or Pepcid AC to see if that clears things up but if it doesn't you'll need to have a doctor evaluate you for the need for a sleep study
Let me know if you need more information please
