I'm sure Denise will pick up on this thread and comment - GERD certainly can trigger asthma symptoms as you can see from the above article.
There can be a two way thing however; the reliever inhalers, especially the long acting ones, relax the LES and can add to reflux. My asthma predates my reflux by about
40 years, but since getting reflux I have to be cautious with my inhalers which can make the reflux worse!
You kind of have to find the middle ground and compromise - I treat my asthma just enough not to annoy my GERD, but most people would have to treat their GERD adequately enough not to trigger asthma!
GERD (3 years and counting)
