How to detect presence of muscular dystrophy?

my grandfather and his two sister had muscular dystrophy although no one in my family now know which one it was. given that my grandfather had it seems more likely that my mother also carries the gene and that i now have a 25% chance of also carrying it. what i cant find is the symptoms that appear before the muscles waste away.
