I learned to read when I was in Grade 2 (maybe dyslexic?), from that moment on I loved reading. I think the side effect is my unability to comprehend math equations. Even with many examples since childhood my mind would not digest any information I been taught to, this has brought embarassment and grief since many would think Im dumb. My brain just refuses to work.
Now I'm in college and when our prof. in Trigonometry lectures us, my mind's in daze. I can't understand it evn in highschool! but I have one achievement though, I made it so far !!
I was diagnosed in college after continually failing remedial college math. I tend to think in pictures. I don't know from Trig at all. I have issues with compass directions, multiple-step oral directions/sequence, Left and Right, spatial orientation, telling time and money - didn't learn how to count money or tell time til about high school. Don't know how to use a ruler. In any and all math classes I too was always afraid of being called on and hated going to the board! I also hated gym or physical education most times and at certain points simply refused to play, which just got me in trouble. I didn't understand the rules and patterns of most of the team playground sports and dances <in gym class> that other students picked up quickly.
The only way to know for sure about whether you have math LD or dyscalculia is to get tested by someone who has tested for and diagnosed math LD <as opposed to only dyslexia>. There are on-line and other "screeners" that can give an idea if a person should seek further investigation or not but those types of things won't help with accommodations at school or work.
Most states <I'm in the U.S> have variously called Vocational Rehabilitation agencies through which someone may get tested for free or at reduced cost, if they or their family qualifies, which is what happened with me - since I was a dependent and had almost no job history <never had any of the fast-food or service-type jobs as a teen and didn't learn to drive til after college>.
If you are interested, you can give us a general idea of where you are<region> and someone can maybe further provide some links or thoughts for you
