There is a very good chance that your asthma is made worse by your reflux. It's a common problem, and many asthmatics suffer from GERD. My asthma was HORRIBLE for the four years before my surgery. I was afraid to move forward with the surgery for many years, but finally, I decided I had to give it a try. I couldn't take the coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath any longer. I was taking too many steroids to keep my lungs open, and they weren't working all that well.
The surgery has been a godsend for me, and my asthma is much, much improved. I still have a bit of asthma due to allergies, but it is very mild and I don't have it all the time, like I did before surgery. I wish I'd had the surgery years ago. Oh well...better late than never!
Good luck, Mookiemoomoo!
