In your throat!: Your digestive tract and respiratory tract are very connected. You eat and breath through your mouth :). Significant problems in you upper GI tract (esophagus and stomach) can have very real impact on you respiratory tract! example, people with bad reflux can have worsening of their asthma..There are many more examples.
