Muscular dystrophy

My son is 4 and he seems to be having problems with weakness and coordination in his right arm and leg. Should I have him checked for MD or could it just be his developmental age?

As always when you, as a mom have the feeling something is wrong with your child. I will say get it checked out..it may indeed be his age they do have growing pains ..with any weakness I think a visit to the doctor is in order.Good luck let us know what they say ..
