I hope I can give you a glimmer of hope. Sometimes you can have some of the symptoms of CF and not have CF. My daughter has two polymorphisms called M470V (she got one from me and one from dad) and she has had some major respiratory problems including RSV, Pnemonia, repeated ear infections, Chronic sinus infections but she doesn't have CF. She definately has asthma though (her dad's family has a history of it.) Her doctor is actually a CF doctor and she says basically M470V may act like CF in some ways but it is not CF.

On her 1st birthday we took her to the hospital because she was having trouble breathing. Before her second birthday which was last November she was in the hospital 8 times. We were beginning to think we might never get it under control but after a year I think we might be getting the right combination of medicines. She hasn't been in the hospital in 4 months now.

Anyway I just wanted to share with you that it is a possiblity to have some of the symptons of CF without having CF. My daugher is on Flovent, Xopenex, Atrovent, Zyrtec, Zantac, Rhinocort, Omeprazole and whatever antibiotic they have her on at any given time. This time it is Cipro.
