Help please!!! Left side of Throat pain for almost 2 years!

I have been having an CONSTANT pain on the left side of my throat since June 30th, 2010. I am not sure the exact location of the pain, whether it is my throat, tonsils or something else, I just know that there is pain there on the left side, it usually hurts more when i woke up in the morning, and it hurts when i swallow, a lot of times it just hurts the whole time!!!

I am very worried about this because it has persisted for SUCH long time. I have seen several physicians, including an ENT who inspected my throat with a black scope to look inside but he found nothing. He said it looked normal except that it was a little bit inflamed, which could be caused by acid reflux. He gave me some medicine but it seemed like it did not help at all!!!

Right now, im feeling worse, im feeling more painful and im more nervous now because im afraid the pain will never go way or it is some kinda cancer or something. Im just so eager to know what could it be, what could it be that cause me painful for so long CONSTANTLY!!!

I am unsure at this point. I've done my own research, seen several physicians for different opinions but still no answers. I do not know what else to do, so I am hoping that someone here may give me some input, advice or maybe share a similar experience of their own, please help everyone!!! any suggestions will be appreciated, im just so lost right now... 

Anyone have the same problem????????
