could acid reflux cause a falling sensation?

Maybe: If the reflux causes pain and nausea, you could feel some faintness, secondary to a vasovagal reaction, but another issue could involve a gastritis or ulcer, which could cause bleeding and anemia, and this too could promote a generalized dysequilibration sensation. Contact your doctor and check this out.
