Issues like burning in the chest, difficulty in swallowing, bitter taste during swallowing, regurgitation of food into the mouth are common. Certain factors may trigger the issues they are certain foods, medications, obesity, stress etc. Food items that trigger acid reflux are the first and most important ones is chocolate.
