BOSTON, Mass. — When a Boston man received a jumbled text from his pregnant wife, he knew something wasn’t right.

She sent these texts during a visit to the doctor to find out about her due date, according to Fox News:

“every where thinging days nighing”

“Some is where!”

But her husband knew the autocorrect feature on his wife’s phone was turned off.

Sure enough, they went to the emergency room, and tests indicated she had a stroke. She was treated and recovered with no complications.

The story was reported this week in Harvard Medical School’s Archives of Neurology.

Doctors said the phenomenon is known as dystextia, and in this case, the first evidence of a stroke came from her texts.

And experts say dystextia is expected to become more and more common.
