My left hand is the one that is "bad" (slow). But when I am typing, it is always getting ahead of my right one, so I type "teh" instead of "the". It is the other way around from what I would expect (just typed "otehr" instead of "other").

pitch,

Are you a fast typer, I believe this is something that is pretty normal in typing....
that's why things are proofread for typo's it might not have anything to do the disease.
Just my opinion..... I wouldn't worry about it too much.
