Could this simply be
lpr/gerd - 100.0%
anxiety - 0.0%
phsycogenic - 0.0%

It all started a year ago when i was stressed and started missing periods, i was stressing so much about it that they never came while trying to deal with this issue i got more and more stressed.. Then i started planning a wedding and started feeling like i had a lump in my throat it felt like there was food or something stuck there and then it moved into my chest!! i had previously suffered with heartburn so my doc put me back on nexium 40mg daily and sent a referral for an endoscopy. i had the scope and there was no major findings except they suspected mild acid reflux. my colleague was den diagnosed with throat cancer and the lump in my throat got worse. i went to see an ent specialist who was so rude told me there was nothing wrong with me and sent me packing! after 3 months i was seen again by another ent doc who said my right tonsil was slightly enlarged so she wanted to take a biopsy the word freaked me out and cause me a lot of more stress.. i went back for my app and they didnt take a biopsy but did a scope of my throat and said my adenoids were very inflammed they put me on betnasol and sent me on my way, with no relief from the steroid drops i went back to ent who done an audio exam and said id some ear damage from previous ear infections.. the pain in my right throat/ear/and neck got worse overtime and it felt like a burning sensation i googled constantly and the more i googled the more i was convinced i had lymphoma/thyroid cancer etc etc.. i went back to ent who did another scope and said my eardrums were quite retracted and my adenoid and right tonsil were inflammed and also my pharynx to take avamys spray daily and use neil med sinus rinse daily, i have beed doing now for 3 weeks and still no relief.. Now the ent reckons i have lpr instead of gerd and that could explain the inflammed tonsil adenoids and referred ear pain!! i never get a break its constant, now my right collar bone is protuding and my right submandular gland is inflammed. im at my wits end and am taking an anti depressant for all of the abover issues. i am awaiting word on an app for a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy but i really dont feel the issues lies there, i was terrified they are misdiagnosing me!! the feelings i get in my neck throat and behind my right collar bone are beyond strange and i dnt feel i can keep dealing with this on a daily basis.. Anybody ever suffer like this please i would be so glad of your input..

Have you had any tests to diagnose reflux? I believe the most conclusive test is a 24 ph test, which is not the most fun thing to undergo, but it might provide you with some answers. You also could consider a barium swallow or endoscopy.

I'm sorry to hear of your problems, nikkid. 
I don't have any words of wisdom, but I can understand the fear you're feeling, as I've been dealing with an undiagnosed issue for over a year and a half.  (Swollen lymph nodes, burning pains, swollen-feeling legs.)
Its frightening when you know that something is going on, but you're treated like some hypochondriac...just wanted to let you know I feel your pain!!
