Just a Mrs. Malaprop or Something Worse?
I'm 18 and I know I'm a bit of a hypochondriac.
I'm a big talker, normally if I'm answering a question I vocalise most of the thought process so I tend to speak for long periods of time and sometimes in a very complicated manner.
In general, I do not have problems reading outloud or forming sentences but I do occasionally have word confusion or mispronounce words. I have always had this a bit but I have noticed that this has been getting worse.
Examples of confusion I have are swapping letters between words: apples and oranges was pronounced "opples and aranges" or I will say "cup" instead of "bowl". This confusion occurs mainly when I'm speaking.
When I am writing I only have normal spelling problems but often miss out whole words when writing essays.
These kind of problems used to occur very occasionally but I am now up to weekly instances of it or worse.
This is not a crippling problem at the moment but it is irritating and it seems to be getting worse.
I am just wondering if this is a case of me being lazy with words or if it could be a underlying symptom of something that I should get checked out.
I also have bad eyesight in my right eye and relatively frequent headaches in my right forehead but near perfect in my left.
