My 12 year old son who was diagnoised with asthma this past summer,the cause is possibly silent reflux!My heart dropped when they told us this,we took him to an allergist to find out if allergies might be causing his asthma,he's had some swallowing issuses as of late,they're putting him on prevacid in the morning and zantac at nite to see if this helps.This sucks!

Sorry to hear your son has got this aggrevating trouble so early. I hope meds help him. Make sure he takes supplements for the mineral loss from the PPIs.

Good luck with your son, PH. My family and asthma doc are very sure of the connection between asthma and GERD. It's too bad he's suffering with the results of GERD so soon, but keep in mind that infants and small children have the surgery for GERD more often than adults!
Hopefully the meds will straighten his asthma right out.
We're with you! yeah yeah yeah
Take care,
