Question I am not sure? - February 7th 2011, 03:26 AM

Ok, so I am not sure if this is the right place to put this but it is related. I am wondering if this is what I think it is. Sometimes when I read everything looks like a bunch of letters and when I do math sometimes everything is jumbled up. I think I may have some sort of disorder or something but I am not sure. I am really ashamed of it and I don't like telling people but I need to know. Thanks and sorry for wasting your time.

This is not a diagnosis, because you need to speak to a professional to get one, but you could possibly have dyslexia.

It sounds like Dyslexia and/or Dyscalculia (basically like dyslexia but in numbers.) But since I'm a doctor I can't diagnose you. I suggest you talk to your parent/s, or a teacher about your concerns and maybe go see a doctor if possible who might be able to take steps in the direction of diagnosing you.

Sounds like Dyslexia, my friend has the same problem. But I wouldn't know. Maybe see a doctor?

There's a plethora of possible explanations, anything from the learning disorders already mentioned to William's Syndrome, specific language impairment (SLI), alexia, strephosymbolia, and the list goes on and on. Many of these disorders have very similar symptoms so they are differentiated on the basis of the areas of the brain affected, performance on diagnostic tests, onset and so forth. Many of these have sub-groups, such as surface dyslexia, neglect dyslexia, semantic dyslexia, phonological dyslexia, deep dyslexia and attentional dyslexia. So even though dyslexia or alexia (differentiated by onset) may be a reason, there's still the task of determining which type it is. Some disorders don't have such complex classification, such as William's Syndrome or even simpler classification, strephosymbolia.

Unfortunately, on the Internet, there are many factors that are needed to be known that you cant provide and we cant know from merely asking you questions or having you freely post.

Or, it could be a visual disorder that has nothing to do with your brain. Or, there can be combinations.

if it is math dyslexia or dyslexia , dont feel ashamed of it, i have math dyslexia and it does get very fraustrating and confusing but it shouldnt be anything to be ashamed off, maybe talk to a teacher and see if they can refer you to a educational physcolojist. (my math dyslexia was not picked up on until i was 16)

If you have a learning disability, please DO advise in your counsler if you have one, because it's their job to GUIDE you. Also, talk to any of your teachers about this problem with him or her. If it's math dyslexia, your teacher can take the neccesary steps to aid you in math because you need extra attention. Do have someone refer you to a someone who specializes in learning disabilities It's perfectly okay to have a disability, you can get on by with a little help in the world Lastly, talk to your parents about this!! There is NOTHING to be ashamed of, even I have a disability too and I find that when I get the neccessary help, I am able to perform well in school.
