Avatar n tn inattentive type, hyperactive-impulsive type and combined type. From your description your son may have inattentive type. Neuropsychiatric testing can be helpful to clarify different reasons for poor academic performance but a good history is the main diagnostic issue. Please discuss these results with your pschologist and physician for further clarification.
Avatar n tn I wasn't diagnosed until recently, at the age of 45, but outwardly my symptoms look different as an adult than they did as a child (and yet nobody recognized it back then!). When I was young, I couldn't sit in a chair without jiggling my foot, for instance. My nerves were always on edge, and I wish I'd realized sooner how much good exercise could have helped. I exercise more and have a job now that has both brain work and physical labor.
18004103 tn?1462248643 I should add I chewed tobacco during this time and I also used adhd medication. Since this incident occurred I quit both. After a few years I slowly began using a small does of adhd meds and I began hormone rep. therapy (TRT). TRT can raise RBC count and hemocrit..my hemocrit is 51.4% (even before TRT) and has stayed the same. My most recent blood work showed a slightly elevated RBC. I didn't worry because I exercise religiously.
Avatar n tn My son is 7 and was diagnosed over a year ago with ADHD combined type. What I have recently noticed is he will constantly repeat a two or three word phrase over and over and over until we have to tell him to stop. He also will be sitting there watching TV or eating and he will just yell. Like AHHHHH! Then stop and thats it. He won't say anything, he's not upset or afraid or anything... its almost like when a kettle needs to give off steam.
Avatar n tn My son is 9. He was diagnosed ADHD combined type with compulsive destructive(?) disorder. He is not on any prescription med's. He does however take vitamin supplements for memory, focus and concentration and Calm Child for the evenings to help wind him down for bed. He is very very smart and artistic. He is an avid reader. My son is very tender hearted and takes everything personally, good or bad. But he has another side that comes out of nowhere and we are losing control of it.
Avatar f tn I have a 3yrs 5mo daughter with Turner Syndrome, ADHD, PDD NOS, SPD, Anxiety Disorder, ADHD combined who last year we noticed a leg discrepancy. We took her in and was told we caught this very early was X-rayed and sent to Scottish Rite, Dallas TX (Nov 08). There we were told this is not TS related but had no explanation for the odd discrepancy as her left femur is longer than her right but her left tibia is shorter than her right, therefore making her right leg slightly longer.

Avatar m tn My 6 year old was recently diagnosed with ADHD combined type and complex motor tics. I am reaching out to all of you because I feel like he could be misdiagnosed. He's having a difficult time in school with making noises, facial grimicing and his new obessions- arm pit farting and noises that sound like a gulp and another one that makes a sound like bowwww. He's been having a lot of trouble with these issues. As a baby he had benign mycolnic seizures quite frequently.

Avatar f tn It is really difficult to determine to what extent if at all the medication or his ADHD is affecting behavior. You mentioned that your son was previously diagnosed with ADHD combined type but you didn't state why. I think that it would be a mistake for any child to be on psychotropic medication for an emotional issue after being diagnosed with ADHD not to be receiving counseling. It is within this context that you would be able to better determine what is causing is what.
Avatar m tn My 12 year old son seems to have issues relating to people socially. He's bright and funny, but can't be in a room with other people without doing something annoying and won't stop. You can't have a conversation with him without him trying to poke you, speaking excessively loud about whatever he wants to say, or physically trying to bother you.
Avatar f tn So i have a question about combined testing. In my country there is no type specific test. So i have to rely on combined test as it is expensive to send blood abroad for type testing. Can combined test give false positive?
Avatar m tn My son was diagnosed with adhd inattentive type by his psychologist and his doctor is running more tests to rule out nothing else is going on. There are so many meds out there any suggestion.
Avatar n tn This may sound like a contradiction but I been diagnosed as having ADHD and Schizoaffective Depressive type. The contradiction seems to come from ADHD is a decrease in dopamine and Schizoaffective is an increase in dopamine levels. To resolve this it may have something to do in my case with Acetesomethingorother neurotransmitter. Is their any literature on this topic of studies of people having both ADHD and Schizophrenia?
Avatar m tn s (very high functioning ASD) and ADHD. He is taking medication for ADHD. He is struggling to stay on-task while working on English assignments, a subject he doesn't like. The problem isn't that he's a poor student; he's actually quite good at reading all varieties of Literature, understanding its complexities and understanding grammar rules. He was turned off of English as a subject b/c of his struggles with writing assignments, but that is improving with tutoring help.
973741 tn?1342342773 Medication is amazing for treating add and adhd. But what about therapy? Do you think it helps? Lots of kids with add and adhd have social skills issues, organizational skills issues, self esteem issues. What could therapy do to help them? It's often an additional expense for parents or to the patient if they are an adult. Is it worth it?
Avatar m tn I have a child who was diagnosed with combined type ADHD at the age of 5 years old. Her doctor is now suggesting that " in addition" to ADHD my child might have PDD-NOS. My child is now 8 years old. My question is whether a child can have both diagnosis of ADHD and PDD-NOS. I told the doctor that I did not think that she has both. The doctor suggested that the additional PDD-NOS diagnosis would get the child more services from the school.
Avatar n tn My 13yo son Sean was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes nine months ago. He is also significantly ADHD, requiring daily medication in order to be able to function socially and academically. We have found that the ADHD meds and the insulin are difficult to schedule because the ADHD meds suppress the appetite, and now that he has diabetes, he cannot skip meals.
Avatar f tn I have several questions regarding treatment options for adults with PDD and ADHD. My brother was diagnosed with PDD-NOS and ADHD when he was five years old. He did not receive pharmacologic interventions, but received intensive Occupational, Physical, and Speech Therapy. He is now 24 years old, and has done incredibly well. He currently attends college at the Art Institute of California in San Francisco.
865817 tn?1255282081 Medication can definately help some afflicted with ADHD. However,a combined approach of behavior therapy/accomodations (particularly in the school setting) are essential to success. 5 years old is a young age to diagnose ADHD, and although it may indead be a correct diagnosis, I would suggest first trying modifications to see if that alone can help. Your school can work with you to establish an IEP with these modifications. For our family, our decision to add medication was not easy.
Avatar f tn I have 3 children my 9 year old is ADHD combined type, 7 year old is ADHD aggressive, an my daughter is ADD with bi-polar.

Avatar n tn (ADHD-C) Individual meets both sets of inattention and hyperactive/impulsive criteria. And by the way, if he does have ADHD, then he does need to be moving to concentrate.
