? GERD: or Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease can cause the constellation of symptoms you mentioned and definitely can worsen asthma symptoms.You want to see your doctor, meanwhile, take your asthma medicines, controller and rescue medicines, as prescribed, try OTC antacids/PPI as omeprazole, unless contraindicated, read the labels carefully, best wishes
