It's like I've forgotten where the keys are and have a hard time finding the right letter.Anybody?
So sorry that this happening!
Are you really tired mentally?
I know when I'm really mentally tired I get that way.
Hope that you are o.k.
There was a period in my illness where I had cognitive symptoms that remind me of what you are describing. For example, I would try to work my calculator in high school, and I would forget how to make it add and devide, and keep pressing the wrong buttons. Also, dialing wrong phone numbers a lot, even when I am looking at the number I want to dial. Mishearing what people are saying. Not remembering how the alphabet and the days of the week go.
I have to go for awhile.
I will check back in awhile to see if you have posted anything new about how you are feeling.
I hope that you are o.k?
cervical spine problems? If the nerves are compressed or damaged it can cause all sorts of problems, cognitive and memory too, it's almost like it mimics the leisons in the white matter in the brain in people with MS, CFS, etc. Thought of it after looking at your profile.
Hope that you sleep well.
I can't come on here late....computer in b'room... and hubby asleep.
Check on you tomorrow.
Been there .... and I have typed all of my life. I have always been an execellent typist. Now, I will forget how to spell words, have a lot of typos, transpose letters, and a lot of stuff like that.
A lot of my problems is that I am up too late typing. I can never get onto the computer until real late and I am so sleepy that I can't concentrate or keep my eyes open, let along my mind not even working!!
Then my arms gets so tired that I can not hold them up much longer.
Hi Lovethesun, I have the same problem.
I could accept it if it was transposing more than "normal", but I plain and simply type the wrong letters. I used to be a decent typist. Now sometimes I have to stop and think where a key is.
When I type letters I don't intend to it is almost like I am typing the words the way they sound?
Do you notice the mistakes as you make them? I see them as I type and can also feel that I am hitting the wrong key but my fingers do it anyway.
I seem to spend most of my time backspacing these days....
How is Linda today!
with typing and spelling and transposing #s for the phone. It makes me feel stupid and it used to bother me tooo much but now, I try to reread everything before I push send.I always was a bad speller so thats not new. I keep a small spiral notebook by my phone and everyones phone #s are on there because I can nolonger remember them. I even forgot my son-in-laws name one day at a family outing!!! ouch that was embarrasing! He laughed it off but I still have it carved into my mind. He's probably forgotten about it. We just do the best we can.and we love you no matter how you type now
I had a bad day physically yesterday(didn't hurt but both legs were out,along with balance problems and a left hand that kept dropping things.It wasn't late,only 6:30PM.Anyway,todays a better day.I can walk better.Linda
