Not usually - unless the reflux was so bad as to cause gastric contents to regurgitate into your mouth and nose. Even then, would likely occur as a single episode, not as continuous nasal congestion and runny nose.

Some sxs of acid reflux may include heartburn, regurgitation, cough, nausea, belching. Have you been evaluated for COVID 19?
