In brief: GERD

Gerd can be a factor in a number of conditions: sinusitis, asthma, sore throat, laryngitis, snoring and sleep apnea, cough, pneumonia, wheezing, copd, chronic bronchitis, lung abscesses, chevy pain, heartburn, barrett's esophagus and esophageal cancer.
Even GI specialists can fail to connect gerd with these other issues - they are primarily looking for malignancy.
