Most people still don't get diagnosed (I didn't until I was 34 and I had to get it done privately).

Directions are to me what words are to the severely dyslexic. I can't answer this but I have the same problem as you.

It is beyond a bad sense of direction - and people find it hard to believe that I can be so bad!

SPECULATIVE SCIENCEMy sense of direction is poor to the point of being ridiculous - far beyond what most people mean when they say they have a poor sense of direction.

I have to do even the shortest journeys 10-20 times before I can remember the way, and I can easily get confused going from one room to another in a large house.

(especially my husband who is a cartographer and never lost). I started searching the net today on the subject, but so far I haven't had any luck finding any scientific explanations for this "condition".

I always describe it to people as similar to dyslexia but with directions - almost feeling like I am lacking a 'magnetic centre of direction' in the brain - so you could be on to something. One article I found suggested that sense of direction is related to the function of the brain's hippocampus area, so I'll just start searching for more info on that.

BUT I can't seem to find my way around - even though I know it should be a quite simple matter? Of late I've been trying to consciously memorise the intersections, turns etc during journeys but sometimes if the journey is too long I can hardly remember half of it at the end... I have a horrific sense of direction and i thought it was just me.

I'm certain that I have direction dyslexia now that I know more of it. I didn't know had this problem until I began driving 35 years ago. :( I have problems with parking a car as I sometimes can't distinguish between turning left and right. I was lost yesterday going home from a concert and I was so embarrassed and upset over it. I have always had these problems having passed my driving test and moved to a new a nightmare.

I often get lost in my hometown and I have lived here all my life. May have a poor sense of direction, lose things often, and seem absent minded. I also describe myself as having directional dyslexia.

It is Dyscalculia May be unable to comprehend or "picture" mechanical processes. Poor ability to "visualize or picture" the location of the numbers on the face of a clock, the geographical locations of states, countries, oceans, streets, etc. I haven't found much on the web about it and wish someone would do a study!

It can get dangerous at times, like when I end up in a scary section of town, even when I'm in my own hometown.
