There is a math disorder, it's similar to dyslexia, and it's called dyscalculia. There is a program to relearn around it, similar to how dyslexics are taught to read.

Read that and see how much applies to you.
If I ever go back to school I'm getting myself formally diagnosed with dyscalculia. The easiest way for me to explain my difficulties with math is this: I look at a page of simple math. While I'm trying to solve the problems, ALL the letters and number get up off the page, dance a little jig with each other, then everything goes back to different places. YOU try solving 2+4=? wehn the 2 looks like a 5 and the 4 looks like an A.
