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.

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.
