Gastric problem

Question
Hello,
My daughter has always stomach problems that have worsened recently. I wonder if an infection in the esophagus (examination in progress) may cause a decrease in breathing because antibiotic treatments for her lungs turn out to be not effective anymore.
Thank you.
Answer
Hello,
It is difficult to answer your question without knowing the exact nature of the examination. It is probably no infection of the esophagus, but can be a search for gastroesophageal reflux. In cystic fibrosis, it may exist a gastroesophageal reflux that can promote respiratory problems.
Best regards
