Positive sweat test after nbs?

Ok, so apparently cycstic fibrosis is part of a newborn screening... And my sons must have been negative, because it was never mentioned. But now he has respiratory problems, recurrent resp distress. He has had pneumonia 2x, bronchitis, bronchilitis, etc. Hospitalized 3 times in the past year and a half. Doctors are leaning toward.asthma but have decided to do the sweat test, just to be safe.

Im scared. Has anyone in here had a positive sweat test after a negative new born screen?
