In brief: Yes....

The presence of gerd can worsen asthma symptoms and it can be a cause of chronic cough.
So, asthmatics should be screened for gerd symptoms and treated if it is suspected.

In brief: Yes

Gerd and asthma frequently go hand in hand.
Gerd can result in asthma and in turn, asthma can be associated with developing gerd. There are nerve endings in the esophagus (swallowing tube) when irritated by stomach acid which can trigger arthma.
