acid reflux cause shortness of breath when laying down?

i have acid reflux problems and for the last several months have been sleeping on 2 sometimes 3 pillows to help with reflux at night. but lately i feel short of breath when i lay down flat and even when on 2 pillows. for the last few nights i have basically been sleeping sitting up and am tired of it. would the acid reflux be causing me to be short of breath almost suffocating feeling when laying down flat?
