Add symptoms girls

Common Questions and Answers about Add symptoms girls


459210 tn?1237385203 there are also some really good ADD/ADHD sites that have a checklist of common symptoms, I could not beleive it, I ticked every box. the interesting thing is that ADD is genetic and if you have it one of your parents do.
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.
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 ??

Avatar m tn Just to add some more information; this girls was someone I don't don;y who I met at a club that same night. I went to the doctors 2 days ago she only looked at my penis; and not at the pimples on ym thights; when i mentioned them she said; they are probably just that..pimples; without even looking at them? I'm very very worried as I have an stable relationship and I don;t it to get ruined by a stupid drunken night.
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.
774736 tn?1311334985 All my family and friends especially my male friends, (suprisingly even female friends) think I'm faking my symptoms, and their saying that anxiety isn't a credible "mental disease", or that it's a womans condition. It's really offensive to me and other people suffering from this mental problem. I've been told several times that I'm only using this as an excuse to get my way or to get out of doing something.
Avatar n tn com site as it's a tremendous help to understand anxiety/panick symptoms during your perimenopausal symptoms. Long story short, I got anxiety due to a back injury which, of course, causes a tremendous amount of stress on the body..hence, anxiety. However, I have been getting my anxiety (tightening in chest, throat, butterflies in stomach, dizziness, etc.) and began researching for almost a year on perimenopause.
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 Alrite, I am 15 and for the past couple of years I have come to realize that I think I have add, because I try as hard as I can to pay attention and class and I will then 10 mins later the randomest **** pops in my head and some days I just worry about all kinds of stuff and just alot of things distract me. I also forget where I put my stuff all the time, my phone, my wallet, and everything.
272759 tn?1270489194 many of my earliest pregnancy symptoms were like the flu. i remember telling the girls on here that i am either getting really, really sick or i am pregnant! good luck to you! mandy-that sucks about your job! if that is the way that the company treats you, then you are better off elsewhere!
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 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 n tn My son is also on strattera and he still has alot of problems. One of the other girls on here says she likes concerta. I have also heard of this one called vyvanse. I would lokk online and see all the risks on them all and then talk to your doctor about wha he/she thinks is best for you child. Good luck.
Avatar f tn Reason I watched him so carefully was because my husband has had a problem looking at other women and girls ever since I have known him.Even after all the talks and tears I cried he never seems to stop.But even I noticed that some of the girls he looks at are way underage.And what started me keeping an eye open at all times we because he molested his sister when he was younger.It started when he was 15 and his mom put a stop to it.Even though that was not intercourse it was still just as wrong.
1472248 tn?1292614695 Yes, I think that my son has ADD. yesterday I read many articles on the web concerning child behavior, I saw the check list and I found he has almost to 9.9 symptoms of inattention, but I do not think he is hyperactive (2/9). I think we should see a neuro pediatrician as advised by Dr. Shamma from medhelp ystday but my husband has another opinion. he dont want to create an additional anxiety to our son he said. he prefers to start by cooperating with his teacher.
Avatar n tn Dear Doctor, After hours of reading all of the forums I decided to post this question as I believ I have minor symptoms. First a little history on myself. I am 28 Male, I was diagnosed with ghonerea approximately 4 years ago in which I took Cipro and all symptoms went a way. Recently I visited Amsterdam and since I have gotten back I have been very stresed as I have noticed a minor white bump, (looked more like an ingrown hair) in the middle of the shaft about 1 inch below the head.
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 Sorry to add a related comment, the open forum was full yesterday. Cugirl, yes, I am swelling a little but really not too bad. It gets worse when I have a lot of sodium that day. There's nothing we can do except for taking in more fluid. The nurse said you should be happy because it's just water weight...
251790 tn?1317316467 they all said that they had elevated symptoms--their symptoms came much harder, much earlier. they tested positive very early in their pregnancy. do you suspect twins?? this is just their experience, but since they all said the same thing, i think it's a pretty good specimen. twins would be so much work and expense, however, they would be twice the fun!
Avatar m tn I'd also like to add that I developed a sore throat the night before last. It has subsided since. Not sure if this is common or not.
Avatar f tn I too am add and my mother was and the older tricyclical antidepressants have been amazing in my family for add symptoms so she now on that but we just started that a couple of weeks ago. She says it does help with her anger.
207227 tn?1271420578 I have a medical background and very knowledgeable about things medical. My daughter has been showing symptoms that are half ADD/ADHD related and half Bipolar Child related. The symptoms are about half of each. I have taken her to a psychiatrist who said she MAY have a mood disporder (unipolar) and put her on Trileptyl. She had an allergic reaction to this and we had to stop it ASAP.
