In brief: See GI doctor

You may have esophagitis (inflammation of the esophagus) due to acid reflux.
There's a small possibility you have a condition called eosinophilic esophagitis if you've had recurrent episodes of food getting stuck, especially soft solids (like rice, pasta, breads, etc). Best way to diagnose this is with an upper endoscopy.
