Could I have a thyroid issue if I sometimes can't swallow my food and have to rub it down?

In brief: Unlikely

It will be very unlikely to have swallowing difficulty due to thyroid enlargement unless it's significant.
Check with your doctor first to see if thyroid testing is warranted.

In brief: See your doctor

Could be an obstruction in the back of the throat or lack of saliva.
But the thyroid gland definitely will also be examined. See your doctor for an evaluation.
