Tired of feeling pressure on throat ara

I have had chronic belching and pressure on my throat but no indegestion or acid reflex. The pressure comes and goes and belching seems to relieve the pressure a little.  I have had this for 2 months now.  I have taken Prilosec and Pecid Complete and even Benedryl thinking it might be an allergic reaction, but nothing helps.  Please can you give me something to go on.

Symptoms in infants and children may include:

"Barking" or chronic cough
Reactive airway disease (asthma)
Noisy breathing or pauses in breathing (apnea)
Trouble feeding, spitting up, or inhaling food
Trouble gaining weight
With laryngopharyngeal reflux, adults may have heartburn or a bitter taste or burning sensation in the back of the throat. But they are less likely to have such classic signs of GERD. More often, symptoms in adults are vague and may be easily confused with other problems. The most common symptoms include:

Excessive throat clearing
Persistent cough
A "lump" in the throat that doesn't go away with repeated swallowing
Other symptoms include:

A sensation of postnasal drip or excess throat mucus
Trouble swallowing
Trouble breathing
Sore throat

  Hi, there is a condition  often called silent reflux as u do not have many of the typical symptoms like heartburn/indigestion....Laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) is similar to another condition -- GERD -- that results from the contents of the stomach backing up (reflux). But the symptoms of LPR are often different than those typical of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

With laryngopharyngeal reflux, you may not have the classic symptoms of GERD, such as a burning sensation in your lower chest (heartburn). That's why it can be hard to diagnose and is sometimes called silent reflux.
