Our expert says:
MB, it may definitely be due to a virus of some sorts, but one would expect the paediatrician to pick up something like that. The problem with GORD is that it may damage the lungs and this is why having the tests done is important. Maybe the safest would be to get a second opinion from a different paediatrician and if he also thinks it is GORD, to see a paediatric gastroenterologist. Good luck.
