Heartburn wakes me up at night and I have it daily. I also feel like food is lodged in my throat and I can't swallow. Endoscopy was clear. Why?

In brief: More testing needed
Other issues may be involved such as esophageal spasm, achalasia, or scleroderma just to name a few.
Additional testing with esophageal manometry, 24 hr pH study may be of benefit. You may also want to try taking a ppi i.e. Nexium (esomeprazole) twice a day to see if that would help.
