IDK if this is in the correct forum, but I had no clue where to begin.

I'm a 35 year old male, in good physical shape, no current medical conditions beside seasonal allergies & the only medications I take are zyrtec, nasalcrom, & baby aspirin.

For the past 6 months or so, I have been increasingly transposing numbers when I write or type. It's beginning to affect my work because I have to record a lot of phone numbers every day. This has never been a problem for me before and seems to be limited to strings of numbers, not letters or words. I don't have any history of dyslexia or any learning disability.

I do smoke a small amount of pot each evening, but I have been doing that for the past 15 years, even through college, and it has never seemed to affect my memory or concentration other than while I'm under the influence.

Did you ever find out what was happening? I have noticed the same thing happening to me. I used to only transpose numbers when I got typing real fast, but lately have starting transposing letters as well. I read that dyslexia can come on later in life after a head injury or illness, but my reading hasn't been affected, only my typing.
