Yes, that can be normal.
It can be from the diaphragm itself.
Sometimes there can be fluid in the bottom of the lung area that obscures it as well, but then the xray would have mentioned a possible "pleural effusion".

If it is just the diaphragm, they aren't going to mention that on the xray, as that would be "normal".
It could be from underinflated lungs (if you didn't take a deep breath and hold it).
Then you don't have any significant lung issues. Pulmonary fibrosis can be seen with significant scarring throughout the lungs on the xray.
Most serious things would show up differently on the xray.
And if there was something suspicious, your doctor would be ordering a CT of the chest.
This sounds like GERD.
Shortness of breath could be coming from the lungs, but given your normal xray, probably is not lung related.
Yes, if it is mild, then ideally it would not progress with medications and changes in your diet and exercise.
No it is not.
