I don't want to sound like im overeacting but I think my son may have some symptoms of CF. I know that I am a carrier, but I don't know about his father. So far his peadiatrician suspects it's only asthma and there is no CF, but he has just started seeing pulmonologists because he his asthma has became a lot worse (due to frequent bouts of bronchitis and colds, he's had about 10-12 this year)who wants to do a sweat test for CF, he sweats a lot, some nights he'll wake up and come in bed with me, he'd tell me that his bed is hot, when I touch his back his t-shirt is soaking in sweat. His stools float and are a yellow colour, sometimes when he coughs I pat his back to help him cough the mucous out, and he brings up large amounts of yellowish mucous each time. Should I take him for the CF test or trust my insicts and go with the peadiatrcian.
