See full answer: In brief, it is known that significant reflux and regurgitation of stomach contents can kick off and exacerbate an asthma attack. You need to get better control of your reflux if that is what it is. I would suggest to you that reflux is a structural disease and that surgery in the right setting by the right surgeon will offer much better control than medications.
