Muscular dystrophy is a weakening muscle condition that makes you feel like you’ve hit a roadblock. The face, arm, leg, spine, or heart muscles are all vulnerable to muscular dystrophy. Because of muscle mass loss and weakness, these muscles face many physical limitations or lose the ability to function altogether. This may also lead to a shortened life span.

The most common symptoms of muscular dystrophy are:

  • Muscle weakness
  • Joint stiffness
  • Difficulty walking
  • Enlarged calves
  • Issues developing motor skills
  • Fatigue
