dyslexia? about 4 years ago I started replacing words

I have always had good vocabulary and grammar, yet about 4 years ago I started replacing word when writing or typing. I would be thinking of a word but write or type a different word. Sometimes it would be similar by a few letters or be a different word. Also occasionally I will look at a word, know what it is, it's meaning, and know how to use it. Yet it's spelling and look will be unknown to me, like a different language. I was wondering what this might be but was not sure in which topic to place, anyone have any ideas?

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i believe you need to be evaluated for dyslexia. There are people specialised and neurolinguistics who can help you find out the problem.

Take care.
