Indirectly......: Barrett's esophagus is an injury to the esophagus that happens when there is gastroesophageal reflux present. And, GERD can cause wheezing and cough. If the GERD is treated, the cough and wheezing due to the GERD will go away and Barrett's esophagus will be avoided so see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment of GERD!
