Question: interpretation problem in what i read

 NJINDAL333 - Sat Nov 22, 2003 11:05 pm

I am a doctor . I have recently completed my MBBS degree .
I am suffering from a problem which I couldn’t solve. I also visited my seniors but they couldn’t detect my problem.

sir, my problem is I can't interpret what I read. I can not understand even comics. when I force my mind to understand the meaning it starts yawning followed by headache, nausea. I am suffering this problem last 3 years.
before that period I was topper of my college.
I don’t have any other problem in hearing , speaking, in touch sensations or any other neurologic disorders.
I am fully desperate and you are my last hope

User avatar NJINDAL,
Look up the word "dyslexia". It is the inability to interpret what is read. However, what you describe looks more like a psychological problem preventing you from reading. Does this happen with all types of reading. Does it happen with studying more? Is there a history of a psychological trauma related to studying and reading that happened 3 years ago?
These are some of the questions that could help you reach a conclusion.
