In brief: Throat burning

Most likely either postnasal drip or reflux.
Consider elevating the head of bed, zyrtec (cetirizine) before bedtime to decrease discharge, check for allergens . Treatment of reflux with either PPIs ( omeprazole) or H2 blockers ( ranitidine). For reflux avoid alcohol, smoking, caffeine, spicy foods. f/u wiht doctor
