Hi misty and welcome,
Yes this is a very common symptom with GERD. Sometimes I also have problems getting down my food and even drinks as well. The only advice that I can give is to make sure you chew your food really good and make sure to always have a drink when you are eating just in case something does have a hard time going down. Hopefully, someone else can help out a little.
