If cough starts after smelling smoke or perfume , then it's unlikely to be related to GERD. I am sorry, but I don't agree with your doctor.Here I assume you are pretty sure about the history.If that's the case then seeing a allergy specialist would be good idea before considering GERD as underlying cause.
