Is GERD anotother typical symptom of APS?

I'd seen several references to GERD in people's accounts on this site and having looked up what it is, I now realise I have what's called silent reflux, which is basically GERD without the heartburn (this finally finally explains my persistent cough and constant throat-clearing, after 30 years or so, hurray!). I haven't been able to find any links on the Internet between reflux, whether the GERDy type or silent, and APS though. Any ideas?

Forget this question, I've come to the conclusion that GERD is such a common and banal disorder that there are bound to be plenty of APS patients who also suffer from GERD, without it being specific to APS!

I do believe that there is evidence to suggest the APS patients are also commonly diagnosed with GERD, indicating that there is a possible link.

Thank you for your answers. I suppose GERD could go on the list of "symptoms Olympics" suggested in one of the blogs on this site, but having consulted my doctors I'm a bit dubious about the link. Thanks again!
