By "spells" do you mean seizures? or stuttering? for did you mean spelling? Need more details. Suggest you always review you notes before sending. Especially with a dyslexia problem. Need to discus with someone who has taken a detailed history, done a good exam and ordered testing depending on what they think is going on. Your team can figure it out and give you the proper diagnosis.

Dyslexia is a common tern for anyone with a learning disability ,usually related to reading. It means nothing more.
