6 speed pops out of first gear, whats wrong?

I have a 2000 F250 with the original transmisson and motor (125,000 miles). For a while now my transmission will pop out of first gear intermittently and when it does you better hope your hand is out of the way or it's likely to get broken. Also very seldom the reverse does the same thing but much less violently. To get around it I just shift from low to second. Anybody know what this might be. My thoughts are it's either syncros or shift forks, but I'm no mechanic either.

I'm not sure what the problem is but I have a 99 that done that for awhile and just the other day it popped outta 6th going 70 down flat highway and now it won't pull in any gear. It just makes a weird grinding/rubbing noise when you let out on the clutch in every gear, and my clutch pedal is completely normal. Any suggestions anyone?

sounds like you tore the springs and center out of your friction disc

Popping out of gear is an internal trans problem.
Not pulling at all can be tranny or clutch.
