Can i have dyslexia?

My mom has dyslexia. When i was little i dont think i showed any signs of dyslexia, i mean i would mess up some words occasionaly. Im in 8th grade & 14 and in all advaned classes & taking geometry honors. Recently i've noticed some words & letters getting mixed up when i read or write. the other day i was writing down a date (1968) and i wrote 1689 instead. I'm reading a book for a book report too and when i read sometimes the words look like they're moving or printed in a wave instead of a line. I can only read a few pages at a time or i'll start to get a headache. Is it possible for me to have dyslexia?
By the way i have not hit my head recently or anything.

Re: Can i have dyslexia?

It's pretty unusual for an adult or teen to just spontaneously develop dyslexia.

It could be that you need glasses. Even if you think you are seeing ok, vision problems can cause fatigue and headaches. Have your eyes been checked lately?

Or, it could be that you do have a little dyslexia, but you managed fine when you were younger, and the amount of reading you're doing now is overwhelming your ability to cope.

Or it could be something completely different.

Mention it to your parents, get your eyes checked. If that doesn't help, consider an evaluation for learning disabilities.
