Common Questions and Answers about Add symptoms in women

Avatar f tn Especially if the ADD was not caught till adulthood (this is very common in women). When you were a child, it was difficult to diagnosis ADD (especially if you were intelligent). If you were a hyper little boy, you got the attention. A little girl pulling B's and C's didn't get noticed. Personally, I think that is still going on a lot today. A wonderful site for adults is http://jeffsaddmind.
976897 tn?1379171202 I think this is why so many Doctors dismissed heart problems in women with typical symptoms and some still do. However, it has been realised that since women have taken the roles they have in the work place, heart disease is definitely on the increase for them. It seems the more stressful the job, the worse their condition becomes. Hardly surprising when you think how many look after the children, get them off to school, go to work then get home to feed them etc.
Avatar n tn tina, chistine...me again. Okay, I found some notes. Look up "hypothyroidism and PCOS". I don't have a web address, but one of my printouts is headed "Natural Health Solutions for PCOS...Health review #12. The symptoms listed may have you nodding your head. It suggest a TSH test. Futher is mentions "Normal TSH (results) are too wide". They suggest 0.50 - 2.50 verses .50-5.00. Also, check out "estrogen, menopause and thyroid" (goggle it).
Avatar m tn It remains at rock bottom or not even measurable BELOW range. I have done some research of the top 10 symptoms of low T in women and she has about 7 or 8 of the ten symptoms. THat being said, many of these symptoms are also parallel low Thyroid which we know she has and is being treated for. However have any other women out there been diagnosed ith Low T? If so have you been treated? what worked? How did you find a Dr to treat you? And how do you feel now?
231441 tn?1333896366 For a many decades it has been observed that the symptoms of MS flare-up in times of lowered estrogen. And often the symptoms are better with very high estrogen. Classically MS is at it's best behavior during pregnancy - a time of extremely high estrogen production. This production falls to normal levels after delivery and the next 4 months or so is a prime time for either the first presentation of MS, or for a major relapse.
Avatar f tn I have found very little information on the net about post micturition dribble in women - all the articles seem to relate to men. How common is this specific problem in women, or is it always lumped together with general urinary incontinence? I am aged 66 and have suffered from very mild stress incontinence since the birth of my three children, but in the last few years I have also developed a very annoying post micturition dribble.
Avatar n tn ) The quick reply is that your risk was too low to even have HIV testing, regardless of your symptoms. Interesting to see those statistics on HIV in Scotland; that's less than one third the rate in the US. And surely the large majority of those women are commercial sex workers, injection drug users, immigrants from HIV endemic countries, or partners of known HIV infected men. The chance your sex partner had HIV undoubtedly is even lower.

1530986 tn?1292029309 Th chances of conceiving in a given month are only 25% so unprotected sex doesn't mean pregnancy. Add to that, there are many reasons why a women could miss, or be late on, a period.
Avatar f tn //www.help4adhd.org/about/what/WWK8 And, as I said in my earlier response, you do have many of the symptoms. and the only way that you will know for sure is to get a diagnosis. However, women tend to kind of get ignored by many doctors. You want to make sure that you see a doctor that deals with adult ADD/ADHD. Your primary physician will probably have no clue. Second, you need to make sure that you know alot about ADD. Make sure you read the last links I sent you.
Avatar n tn and this is an especially weird disease, in that some people can have cirrhosis and have no symptoms, and some people can have stage 0 or stage 1 (low to no liver damage) and have many symptoms... many docs and researchers think it's because it's the virus itself that wreaks havoc with the immune system, etc...and that;s what's causing many symptoms...
Avatar f tn I agree with the new psychiatrist that I have all the symptoms of ADD or even ADHD, but I also have the symptoms of schizophrenia. So what is it? Or is it possible to have both? He wants to put me on a drug for ADD but from what I've read, those drugs can exacerbate schizphrenia symptoms.
Avatar n tn This tends to be especially true of women, who often have much less noticeable symptoms in childhood then suddenly realise they have huge problems in adult life (I'd count myself as one of those!!). I'm guessing from your user name that you're male, but I suspect since women tend to be more likely to have Inattentive ADD, it might be true of males with Inattentive ADD too (although I have no solid evidence to base this claim on). The symptoms you describe sound very similar to mine.
Avatar n tn The pysc doc told me I have ADD and alot of docs misdiagnos because bi-polar and ADD have alot of the same symptoms. You sound alot like me and my symptoms. I have been reading a book that has been very helpful and amazing and think you could benifet from it." Driven to Distraction" Recognizing and coping with ADD By Edward M Hallowell,M.D.,and John J. Ratey,M.D.
Avatar n tn It is hoped that the information contained in this article will assist women in their discussions with their physicians, and that they will be better able to make informed decisions about the benefits to themselves and their families when pursuing a course of treatment for their AD/HD symptoms. It, however, should never be considered a substitute for medical advice.
Avatar n tn For an article on ADD/ADHD in girls go to http://www.addvance.com/help/women/daydreamer.html. It gives an easy-to-read characterization of the three types of the condition as they express themselves in girls.
Avatar m tn I currently read that 75-90% of women who contract the herpes virus don't get any visual symptoms and don't know they even have it. Can this be correct or possible?? Is it possible for a woman to go 6-7 years without knowing they have herpes? I take everything I read online with a grain of salt, but I've been trying to educate myself lately. I've done research on males with herpes, but I'm not too familiar with how things work for women.
Avatar f tn Thank u so much but do u know anyone who test negative at 3 months and his result is change at 6 months stress killing me I cant sleep almost cant eat and I have all the symptoms in first few weeks of incident and throat sore I stll have help me
299260 tn?1304219705 I agree with mommyin09, we're here to listen and support and would never be in a position to tell you to get rid of your husband! TTC can be stressful enough sometimes, and then when you add in all of the other things in life, it's only natural to have rough patches. I hope things continue to get better. jmh2005 - That's good that you take a prenatal everyday. I hope you find some answers on the aspirin.
478429 tn?1265247987 Most of the women in my February group jumped ship early, but my little one is hanging in there. I'm scheduled for a c-section on Valentine's Day unless baby turns, although that's unlikely at this point. I can hardly believe this journey is about to end and new adventure is going to begin. I am so incredibly grateful to the many amazing women I've met on medhelp who have encouraged and supported me along the way.

299260 tn?1304219705 For instance, a number of essential oils aren't good for pregnant women. Also, too much vitamin A, even in over-the-counter preparations (usually called retinyl or some version of that word), should be avoided. Even witch hazel, according to a seemingly well-versed woman in the health food store, should be used with restraint. I am currently using Weleda's rose soap and rose eye cream, both approved by the database.
299260 tn?1304219705 ) Having very little to no symptoms, kinda makes me think it didn't work, but we'll see. I'm trying to still think positive. Well I better get ready for work. Keep your fingers crossed for me :) Hope you all have a wonderful Monday...
