Ear, Nose and Throat plz help

This is the timeline of my problem.

Week 1: I have phlegm stuck in my throat. Only symptom. No fever, no cough, and it didn't hurt when I swallowed.

Week 2:  Still some phlegm but I had pain on the left side of my throat. Doctor said my throat was red so he gave me some antibiotics (amoxocillin).

Week 3: Still had phlegm in my throat but no fever, no pain, and no coughing.

Week 4: Same symptoms. I went back to the doctor and he said as long as my phlegm is clear not to worry.

Week 5: Went to another doctor for a second opinion. She said my throat is red and gave me some antibiotics called zithromax.

Week 6: Less Phlegm but my ears started hurting and I had some pain under my jaw. Like 2 lines. Went back to the doctor and she gave me a nasal spray to reduce the phlegm in my throat. She gave me another prescription for zithromax.

Week7: Burning chest and at times burning throat or dry throat. Feels like I been screaming. I feel pressure around my jaws. I went back to my original doctor and he gave me Augmentin (antibiotics). He said one of my tonsils are a little swollen. And that the lymph nodes under my jaw are slightly enlarged, but not much. I told the doctor its been 2 months but he does not seem worried.

Week 8: I became obsessed with my lymph nodes and started pressing them under my chin. Now one feels inflamed. I have shooting pains at times. My chest feels weird like congested. In the sternum area and my back itches.

Week 9: Went to another doctor and she says my throat is red. At this point I have a lot of anxiety and worry. She asked if I have acid reflux. And I do and lately its been acting up because of my stress. She thinks its acid reflux and also allergies that keep infecting my throat. My throat feels fine when I eat. I havent had fever or a cough. I do suffer from asthma and have been using an inhaler for 17 yrs. I sometimes have minor pain when I swallow and I still have phlegm in my throat behind one nostril. Its not a lot just a little.

What can be wrong with me. Both doctors I've seen don't seem to be worried at all. But I'm freaking out...
They wont refer me to a ENT
