Difficulty Determining Lines When Reading?
excuse me, I’m a 20-year-old student. Until I was now I had difficulty determining which lines I had read. especially in reading books with many lines I often jump up and down and often repeat the same lines. is it normal in general?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition you are experiencing, with difficulty determining the order of the lines when reading, is actually not part of a special disorder, and can occur due to several factors, including the lack of concentration, which can be caused by lack of sleep, lack of nutrition, and fatigue, lack of interest on something that is read, the size of the writing is too small, less lighting, and too fast to read. Another case, if you really can not read at all even though you have learned, then there is a disorder for that, called dyslexia.
Our advice, if you feel very disturbed by this, try to check yourself to a general practitioner first, to be sure through a history of how long this has happened, how often, what triggers and the presence or absence of other accompanying symptoms, besides that also maybe a few simple tests will be done to confirm the trend. The treatment you will receive later will depend on the results of the examination, including if necessary referral, whether it is to the eye doctor, neurologist, or psychiatrist.
In the meantime, try to slowly read, make sure the lighting is good and you feel comfortable when reading, get enough rest, and can drink coffee too if you please. So, hopefully answering your question.
