No this is not normal. IT could be GERD. You should mention this to your doctor. It could be something treatable and it could develop into something if you dont get it evaluated. You should play it safe and talk to your doctor.
Yes it is normal. If you must eat spicy foods keep some medication handy. It gets worse when you get older. I try to avoid spicy foods as well as acidic foods like tomatoes. If I get heartburn I pop a Tums.
