Asthma and Food Triggers

I have recently discovered I may have a condition called laryngopharengeal reflux. For years I considered it normal for me go have breathing symptoms after eating or in extreme temperatures and attributed it to asthma flare-ups. 4 years back I started asking my doctors about it the symptoms they suggested a food monitor/elimination diet. I was allergy tested and was only allergic to one food. My pulmonologist suggested it is a stomach issue that won't go away. Any amount of asthma medication does not help this specific issue..So I'm now on a acid reflux medication that may take time to improve my symptoms/breathing issues (non acid acid reflux). Hope this may give somebody else insight into what may cause asthma like symptoms.
