Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you.

No GERD does not cause ''air entrapment inside stomach.
Severe form of GERD can cause asthma like symptoms.

You are suffering from GERD for only the past 2 years. If you take medications and modify lifestyle, you can even prevent the development of Barrett's esophagus. Barrett's esophagus develops in only about 10% of those with GERD and that too when it is for a longer duration and not controlled with medications and lifestyle changes.
