In brief: Yes

There are cases of acid reflux in children that trigger asthmatic symptoms.
In these cases treating the reflux often improves the asthma. This may also be true in adults. Chack with your pcp.

Acid reflux is a well known trigger for asthma and when uncontrolled can definitely worsen your symptoms.
You need to control the acid reflux to help reduce your asthma symptoms and irritation ... There are many ways to reduce reflux, including diet, life style modifications and medications.

They are definitely not the same disease, but controlling reflux will help control and decrease asthma symptoms. It is not a treatment for asthma but reduces the severity. Just like avoiding strong odors and perfumes.
