In brief: Yes
So called "silent heartburn" is very common.
Its manifestations may be chronic, otherwise unexplained, cough, voice chances, recurrent sinus infections, esophagitis (inflammation of esophagus visible on upper endoscopy), dental problems (caries), chronic excessive throat phlegm production, regurgitations etc.
