Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic

GERD(gastro esophagial reflux disease) does not cause cough, it only causes burning sense of chest, upper abdomen, pain abdomen, diarrhea, vomiting are other associate symptoms of it.. The reason for the cough is due to respiratory tract infections,.. hence you must be clinically evaluated... consult a physician.....

Thank you...
