This could be related to his muscular dystrophy.It may feel to him as if the food is sticking but it could be that the muscles that needs to push the food down is not working properly. I suggest that you see a gastroenterologist - they may need to do tests like a scope or a barium swallow so that they can see exactly what happens when he tries to swallow. Try to keep to foods that he finds easier to swallow for now - let him take Fibrogel orange (soluble fibre) in fluid to keep his stomach soft. Is he seeing a neurologist for his muscular dystrophy?
