Could I be dyslexic?!?

Question by : Could I be dyslexic?!?
Iam a 22 year old female, and I just recently underwent an extensive cognitive exam to determine whether I may be affected by Inattention or ADD. The exam covered a vast amount of ground, but it seemed that my main areas of problem arose during the verbal/ vocab and spelling portions. Sometimes I have a hard time with pronunciations of words that I may know and use in writing. I think it’s important to mention that English is my second language and I’ve been speaking it for 11 years. I graduated high school with honors and at the top of my class. I attend an Ivy league university and I just recently graduated with honors and have since moved on to work on my masters degree at the same university. I am hoping to attend law school after.

Today, during the exam, I was asked for definitions of some difficult vocabulary and later I was given a spelling test. I was so nervous and frustrated during both that I contemplated leaving the session. I get really worked up and stressed when I feel like I should know something, but go “blank” when the time comes.

I have been doing well in college especially with a heavy reading load. however, I’m concerned that I don’t function efficiently when it comes to school work. this made me pursue the exam to determine whether there is something wrong. I usually perform very poorly on standardized testing, especially on the reading and comprehension potions. But, I seem to be doing fine in college.

I’m worried about my future when it comes to the LSATs and also law school.

Do you think I may have dyslexia? or could this be an anxiety issue? or inattention?

Dyslexia usually pops up when teachers at the school realise that the child is having problems. Normally picked up around the age of 6 or 7. Common signs of dyslexia are spelling words backwards: dog instead of god. Sometimes they cannot see the differences between letters and numbers: mistaking 5 for S, or E for 3.

In a way I think that you may be answering your own question here. The fact that English isn’t your first language. English is also my second language (I speak 3 fluently) and sometimes I also have difficulty pronouncing words, especially more complex ones (I say them phonetically and people have to correct me sometimes). It’s got nothing to do with stupidity or dyslexia, it’s just your trying to make sense of an English word in a foreign language.

Perhaps you are just nervous when it comes to spelling. You subconsciously believe that you are at a disadvantage. I sometimes get stuck because Language A is my home language but because I was schooled in English and Language C only I have problems spelling my home language. I was schooled in English and did my tertiary education in English, but in the area I work most of my staff and clients speak Language C. In my head, all languages are at loggerheads with each other. Sometimes I only know terms in a particular one and it can get quite confusing trying to make sense out of 3 languages which are battling each other in my head.

I don’t think dyslexia is your problem since it would have popped up in childhood already. I think you may just be nervous and put yourself down. The fact that you are already on your Master’s is an indication that you are intelligent and can comprehend. When you are nervous you can tend to go blank. It happens to all of us – just try to relax. I know its hard. And unless you’ve been using a lot of spell check I can’t see anything wrong with your use of English.

Good luck!

Do I have adhd or post traumatic stress disorder (ptsd)?

Question by : Do I have adhd or post traumatic stress disorder (ptsd)?
As a child I was always extremely hyper and would easily fit the definition of adhd, but during my childhood my father passed away (about 7 years ago, i was 10) and after that I basically became the complete opposite. I’m the same way to this day. Not necessarily lazy, just extremely inattentive. I tend to live inside my head a lot, daydreaming constantly if the event at hand doesn’t entertain me. I haven’t been able to put my finger on it but I always feel depressed and disconnected mentally and extreme anxiety tags along with that. Maybe these are the symptoms of ptsd and not adhd, or perhaps both?

I really have to struggle to remember any memories that aren’t extreme. Like subtle memories such as something not traumatic or life changing. I used to smoke weed a lot and one time I went back to my house after hanging out with some friends and just laid in my bed meditating about old memories. I had a bunch of flashback like memories but they weren’t negative in any way. The main thing is that I remember all of my elementary school teachers faces popping up one by one until their faces were engraved in my memory like I’d just seen them yesterday.

This might sound really odd but if anyone out there can help I’d really appreciate it

Q&A: Heart palpitations that feel good?

Question by Anonymous: Heart palpitations that feel good?
Now, some definitions say palpitations are usually the heart beating irregularly fast or hard and/or being aware of your heartbeat. This is more of a single, sudden big beat amongst the normal ones.

One day, two weeks ago, I didn’t feel very well, so I laid down to try and get some sleep. I was just on the edge when I got this sudden shock to my heart, waking me up. Kinda like the feeling you get when you forget to breath and your lungs give a little tug to remind you to. I was deep in thought while drifting off, so I just figured I forgot to breath. It kept happening, though. A little adrenaline surge every 10 minutes. This was just while I was lying down, however, which prompted me to stay awake, which prompted me to think more about it, which prompted a panic attack and I wasn’t able to go to sleep for about 36 hours feeling like sh-t.

Well, I finally went to sleep and it ended. I went back on blood pressure meds (and occasionally aspirin) for about a week (I quit long ago because my BP managed to balance without them). And it hasn’t been that bad since. However, each night when I lay down, I still get that heart palpitation – but it’s different. It only happens once or twice; it’s not strong enough to actually wake me. The weird part is (and the reason for this question) is that, when it happens, it spreads this sort of wave through my chest, and it feels really good. Kind of like a heart orgasm or something.

I’m getting some blood and allergy tests done soon, and am looking to bring up a few things that could have started all this to my doctor so he doesn’t just send me out the door with pills for anxiety.

So, has anyone ever heard of something like this? Not so much the day it started (I looked and it appears to be quite common amongst a variety of ages) but the part where it feels good? That’s just damn strange.

Thanks for reading.

Answer by Waytootiny
I had something very similar and when I was finally able to get into the doctor with it still happening they figured out it was a fast double heart beat which felt like a skipped beat with one pronounced thump then normal for a while. What this eventually led to was my heart going into this messed up double beat non-stop. Eventually I called the medics they came hooked my up to a monitor and found a pulse of only 32bpm (Extreme bradycardia) . Later that night around 4am my heart stopped altogether so I was dead for a minute. Talk about wow! Luckily I was in an icu where they were able to shock me back to life, and now I am using a pacemaker to keep it from happening again (I’m only 41). Needless to say get it looked at before any needless drama. Good Luck.
