In brief: Yes...

Reflux can cause bronchospasm which, in turn, can cause coughing.
The treatment entails treating the reflux aggressively as well as bronchodilators and steroid inhalers for the bronchospasm until the reflux is under good control. Your doctor can diagnose and treat this so see your doctor so therapy can be instituted asap.
