    Random things when writing

    My husband has started to experience random things appearing when he writes or types. For example when he was filling out paperwork at a doctor's appointment, he noticed he had written two random characters in front of his address.

    Downsides to Training to Become Ambidextrous

    Hi, For the past 3-4 months, I have trained myself to be ambidextrous thinking it would improve communication between the right and left hemispheres. I wrote till my non-dominant hand was proficient which took about a month. Until a month ago, I gradually stopped writing with my non-dominant hand. However, I still conducted everyday activities with left (nondominant) hand such as using chopsticks or other utensils. Just recently, my head has been starting to hurt and I don't know if this is due....
