Consult an allergist: A high percentage of people with asthma have GERD and vice versa. In GERD one needs to worry over aspiration into the lungs as well in addition to the fact that GERD worsens asthma . I think it is time for you to consult an allergist to get you under better control. If possible, propranolol should be replaced with another drug for migraine because it worsens asthma. No drug for GERD?
