What causes pressure in the throat?

I have pressure in the throat area, doctors have said that it is caused by reflux and I do not believe it is just that because this started after neck surgery and no medicine has helped. I ve had an EDG, with the passing of a balloon which has relieved the pressure in the esophagus and a swallowing test and checked the thyroid. Is there an explanation for this condition?

Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, yes it could be the reflux disease of acid and it is the condition which could cause many symptoms and it is nothing to loose if could treat this condition so better to treat this condition on tentative basis and best drug would be Tab Omeprazole 40 mg once in day hope this information helps.
