Question What could this mean, upper presure is high? manometry test related

I had my manometry test done today(3rd time now), and have the probe inside now for the next 24hrs.
I asked the technician who did the osephagal manometry test , so what does it show. he said LES is slighly loose, but he asked do you feel any tightening sensation in your throat because the pressye at the top around the throat is extremely hight. He said it should be max 90, but it is 310. I am a type of person who really worries, so said to him that a year ago I had the tightening and the globus lump in the throat feeling which got better with 2X nexium a day, then he said do you feel the globus feeling again I said no.
What could this be, I am so scared now, that could it be something bad in the throat?

I have to say I am ever so tired about these health worries, and when someone says this to me I get really panicky?

I would say that you were and still are worried, and it is causing your muscles to over tighten. I would not be worried about a high reading of pressure on your esophagus near your throat. It could all just be stress and worry.
