No Permissions to open anything....

It did this randomly, i cant open any documents (mainly text docuemnts)
If i try to here is the error message:
The document “” could not be opened. You don’t have permission.

To view or change permissions, select the item in the Finder and choose File > Get Info

And yes i went in the perms and my account was set to Read&Write.
I havent been in the prefrences for weeks. it did this out of no where. I cant even open files from my SFTP client, this is severe and i need into my server files.
Thank You
