459210 tn?1237385203 my question is this, how do you get tested for add? where do you get tested? and which doctor gives you add medicine if you need it? what is the test like ? do they just ask questions? i know i have it and it would be nice to read a book...
Avatar n tn Certainly you exhibit some of the symptoms of ADD. You are also of an age that did not focus on girls in public schools who had ADD. All the attention tended to go to those hyper little boys. So its entirely possible that you were overlooked, specially if you had the intelligence to "get by". A site that you might be interested in checking out is - Its for adults with ADHD, but a lot of it applies. Take a while to go through it.
Avatar n tn Two other ideas. One is that with her intelligence she gets bored fairly quickly and the words in her head is simply the way she is dealing with the boredom. And she may get so involved in daydreaming or finds the work so boring that she just isn't finishing it. If she is reading on the 5th grade level, there is no way that, "words bother her and call her stupid." But she may be missing out on the instructions? The other is, of course, the possibility of ADD.
Avatar n tn I had relief after telling me he never had such feelings for humans, but shuns human contact. No interest in girls. I am afraid if he is pushed for human contact, it may be aggressive. He also becomes attracted to certain interests. He has become infatuated with bears, computer equipment, etc.. It all changes over time, and these are like episodes. He will carry pictures of the stuff around with him and converse with it as if it can listen and understand him.
490665 tn?1210337612 was wondering if adult add goes un detected for quite a while, its just i suffer with anxiety and have been told its a side effect of add or adhd, i have always been quite hyperactive as a person and as a young person was very unruly and troublesom and did not quite understand why i was like that and why i was doin things wrong, i always have compulsions to get in trouble and still do, i also suffer with a bad temper but i dont mean to have these outbursts they just happen!!
Avatar m tn I spoke to a mentor about this issue and he doesnt take it seriously, he tells me that these are not unusual symptoms. I have made severall ADD tests online, the result was that there is a high possibility that I have ADD. Now my question to you is , are this symptoms of me having ADD, and if yes what should I do ? Should I take this serious ??
272759 tn?1270489194 -) I can't wait to find out our babies gender, we already have a girls name picked out (we've had the name for years) but never came up with any boy names. Anyone else thinking about baby names yet?
Avatar m tn I was very prone to acne for a very long time; it's much less now; still get odd one out I'm 31 years old. I wodner if this could be some std symptom or just some acne pimples developing due to the stress of me thinking about the std.. Many thanks for your feedback guys. I;m acutally really worried as I never had mutliple partners so my knoledge on std's is very limited!
Avatar f tn Hi girls. Im 20 years old and currently 24 weeks pregnant with my first, due April 29th.
Avatar n tn My question to you is, is compulsive lying and impulsiveness general symptoms of ADD ADHD or is it a deeper behavioral medical problem. My daughter intends to come home at 2.00 pm but then stays out. I believe she tries to come home, but I know she is very impulsive and does not make good choices (thinks things through). Also she has lied to me throughout her life, some of it totally unecessarily.
Avatar n tn I am 43 never been seen for ADD but pretty sure I have it. my 10 yr old does.. so anyways... as for that I was wondering if that could be the reason I can't sleep at night.. It's like I try but can't then in the day like around noon I get very tired , enough to fall asleep at the wheel it seems sometimes. It's like I feel like I've been drug-ed to fall asleep. why is that? It is happening more often now the drowsy feeling during the daytimes.
443968 tn?1288616289 Thanks for all your support. Girls I have no symptoms!!!! Anya- Good luck for tomorrow. Everything will go fine. My prayers for you and for those who are going for u/s this week. aweeonetolove- Welcome to the group.

Avatar n tn For an article on ADD/ADHD in girls go to It gives an easy-to-read characterization of the three types of the condition as they express themselves in girls.
Avatar n tn Its very easy for girls to get overlooked by their teachers cause they are not bouncing off the walls. ADHD is almost always passed down by parents, which can make it hard for them to deal with it. You might consider talking to your school counselor. Your school is really the one (besides your parents) that can get things started. Good luck!
272759 tn?1270489194 Hi girls, I did an hpt this morning and BFN> no sign of AF though. This is very frustrating! I havent really had any preggo syptoms since mondayish. I am so confused. i did fall asleep on the couch last night at 9pm....and I do still have the little bumps on my nipples...I guess i have some hope but its slowly diminishing.
Avatar n tn 20pm and i have a history exam tommorow and i got thinking about how i couldnt focus and started looking up ADD symptoms -i interrupt other people -i overeact and can go from normal and one person will say something that annoys me and ill start shouting at them -my thoughts wander in class -my room/school bag/class notes are very messy and disorganized -my friends say im hyper -i really often lose really important things like things for school or passed down jewellry etc -my parents tell me i n
Avatar n tn Oh, the Concerta/Ritalin products are normally used for ADD, and the Adderall/Vyvannse products are normally used for ADHD. Hope this helps. Please do let me know if it is a overdose of Concerta, it helps me - help others.
Avatar f tn To me, these symptoms are pretty big ones that you have ADD. a common mistake people think is that if you have ADD, you have the H componet (hyperactivity). that is not true at all. I do not possess the hyperactivity componet, which is why I think I was tested so late ( i was diagnosed as a teen). this may be why you are just noticing symptoms now in high school because things like concentration and work load are raised significantly.
Avatar f tn to be honest i dont think this guy is ever gonna change. once a weirdo always a weirdo. hes obviously been interested in younger girls for awhile now soo i cant imagine him changing. its really disgusting that he would be looking at a 5 year old anyways. i could understand maybe him loooking at an 18 year old girl who is grown up and an adult and mature. this guy is interested in younger girls well hes gonna be in alot of trouble if he ever decides to abuse a kid.
Avatar n tn I constantly examine my penis, I know I should go see my doctor, however have yet to make an appointment hoping these minor symptoms go away. Also I ate mushrooms on my last night of the trip and masturbated for quite sometime. Could excessive masturbation caused the irritation and redness? Thanks for any help you can give, even though I'm sure you'll recommend I see my doctor. I have a feeling it is just stress, guilt, use of condom(reaction), and possible over use...
Avatar m tn Well, you certainly do have many of the symptoms of ADD or inattentive ADHD. I have many links on the problem, but these 3 are pretty good ones. And, you might want to consider sharing them with your parents.
Avatar n tn made me feel good they suggested being a patient advocate and would but now advocate for myself. just need some input on how long did your cycles remain the same or change? hoping for non exist soon but have a 17 yr. old in the house and think shes setting me off with her hormones. can i kick her out? JUST KIDDING LOVE HER TO DEATH.
Avatar m tn However, before I put my thingy in I would check for sores and such and all the girls I boinked didn't have any. I did not have any symptoms. Also, my last STD test was last year (March 2015). It was a full STD checkup. During that time my herpes results were as follows: HSV Type 1 IgG Ab 1.08 HSV Type 2 IgG Ab 0 I googled online about the 1.08 equivocal results and some said Gardasil can cause a false positive (I had Gardasil a month earlier before that STD test).
Avatar f tn Sorry for this long post. I'm soon going to be tested for since I have EVERY symptom of MS.
Avatar n tn hi I had an abnormal period on 19th to 22nd, my usual is 4 days every 28 days, this was period on 19th for 1/2 day rest of time was wearing pantyliner?? I have had a doctors urine test negative and a home test negative, my boobs are leaking milk, my tummy feels fuller, pain in left of pelvis, and watery discharge? Could this mean anything else? so tired and confused. I do have a ultrasound booked but tthat wont be for a few weeks.
251790 tn?1317316467 I'm 7w3d and at first I thought that I was just really bloated but then it never went down, so I already have a bump and can feel all sorts of pressure down there. As for symptoms, etc, I have had some pretty strong symptoms (stuffy nose, sore lower back, cramping, unbelievably sore boobs including white bumps on my areolas, major nausea although I haven't gotten sick yet, major fatigue, frequent urination..especially coming into my 7th week, being hungry more but being able to eat less...
Avatar m tn I thought gardasil was just for girls? Should I look into getting a shot? Not to belabor it, but should I still be concerned or get a test if I don't see symptoms in the first three weeks from the potential risk? Grace, from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for your knowledge and, above all, your compassionate kind words. You are amazing and immensely appreciated. I hope your life is filled with peace and happiness.
