Avatar n tn How can I find a psychiatrist and/or counselor who knows both ADD in adult women, and Social Anxiety Disorder well enough to help a person who suffers from both to get through the Social Security Disability process? This will be in two parts because I exceeded the maximum length.
Avatar m tn Hi, my five year old step son has always been hyper active and some what defiant, we will taking him to have a psychiatric evaluation for possible ADHD, but recently ( in the past 4 months) we have caught him hitting him self in the head, when we ask him why he is doing this he tell us that "there is too much noise in my head" we asked him to tell us what the noise sounds like and he let out a very loud scream!
Avatar n tn Ever since I can remember, when I urinate, my urine forms bubbles. Not so many form as to resemble soap, yet there are more bubbles than there would be in just normal water. I remember watching a commercial when I was a kid saying that if you had bubbles in your urine it could mean some sort of kidney disease. My question is, should I go see a doctor?
Avatar n tn My pre-teen daughter has been dx with sensory intergration dysfunction and ADHd ( inattention ). Last year she attended a special program for Gifted children with LD,and made the honor roll but she was very unhappy because she felt teased by other children at the school. She found it very hard to make new friends.
Avatar f tn Genetic studies also suggest that some forms of ADHD and OCD are genetically related to TS, but there is less evidence for a genetic relationship between TS and other neurobehavioral problems that commonly co-occur with TS....The gender of the person also plays an important role in TS gene expression. At-risk males are more likely to have tics and at-risk females are more likely to have obsessive-compulsive symptoms." https://www.ninds.nih.
5757880 tn?1395581622 About 80% of individuals with ADHD have sleep disorders. ADHD needs to be treated at bedtime, so if her meds have worn off much earlier in the day, add a dose so that it will be effective at bedtime. Decreasing ADHD symptoms will allow her to fall asleep."

Avatar n tn My son is almost 13 years old and very active. He also has ADHD and takes Vyvanse. He had an EKG and it appears initially that he has an enlarged left ventricle. He had a echo yesterday. We are concerned. We took him off of his medicine. In the last few days, he has been uncharateristically tired. Today he took a 2 1/2 hour nap. We are awaiting the results of the echo, shoudl we be concerned?
Avatar m tn I take a muscle relaxer for back and neck pain. They can use adhd drugs for concentration. They may send you for a Neuropsche Evaluation to see what cognitive problems you are having.
Avatar f tn do you have a newer cable box? take the little card that goes in it to work with you :) then TV won't be an option. i feel this is unacceptable. you are not paying her to veg while your son watches TV. it also makes me wonder what else she may or may not be doing against your wishes or behind your back.
Avatar m tn In a smaller percentage of cases, antihistamines, tricyclic antidepressants, antiseizure medications, and opioids have been shown to worsen tics. Some forms of tic may be triggered by the environment. A cough that began during an upper respiratory infection may continue as an involuntary vocal tic. New tics may also begin as imitations of normally occurring events, such as mimicking a dog barking. How these particular triggers come to form enduring symptoms is a matter for further study.
443100 tn?1210625462 Maybe you or your son (at 3 i don't know if he will do that, maybe not) can expect some computer questioaires or filling in circles on forms with a number two pencil. Maybe you will see him in a room with a big mirror wth some puzzles or toys. Expect more than one visit. Expect to sign releases of information for every doctor since his birth, Expect some questions about your pregnncy. Did he take those "heel *****" tests at birth? They'll want these records, too.
Avatar f tn The closest fits or Autism or Adhd. Is it possible to be diagnosed with ADHD this young. I also have ADHD, by the way. So it would be more than possible for her to have it. My problem with saying it is Autism is the fact, that her speech is picking up, she is understanding better, she is not in her own world, and her A typical tendencies are slowing down, if not stopping alltogether.
Avatar n tn We've seen doctors of every form they've noted that he has tangenial thinking. I had him diagnosed with ADHD and placed on Adderall and its helped alot but he still has alot of trouble in school. He is horrible in math and handwriting and always failing these subjects and won't do board work. Everything from Aspergers to simple ADHD to possible sociopath has been suggested.
Avatar n tn It never hurts to be patient and supportive when it comes to toilet training, and if your son were younger I would not suggest any specialized evaluation. It is his chronological age that suggests an evaluation might be in order. However, it's important to recognize that, due to his developmental status, he is in most areas like a younger child. Autism is one condition along a spectrum of conditions called Pervasive Developmental Disorders.
Avatar f tn They kept saying they think he has ADD/ADHD, etc and Ritalin was mentioned by them as a form of treatment. It's like at school he is a totally different child. So we went to the psychiatrist and he said he was not ready to put him on medications, he was not sure about the ADD/ADHD and wants him to go to an occupational therapist and get evaluated for Sensory Processing disorder b/c that often resembles ADHD. I get the feeling that the school is not happy with me about this choice.
Avatar f tn Depersonalization also might be a symptom of other disorders, including some forms of substance abuse, certain personality disorders, seizure disorders, and certain other brain diseases. Depersonalization disorder is one of a group of conditions called dissociative disorders. Dissociative disorders are mental illnesses that involve disruptions or breakdowns of memory, consciousness, awareness, identity, and/or perception. When one or more of these functions is disrupted, symptoms can result.
Avatar n tn I'm seeking some information about the new drug for treating ADD and ADHD called Concerta. Besides its advantage as a long-delivering time release medication, I was wondering if anyone has any infomation about its effects on appetite. Ritalin and its gerneic equivalents are, of course, well documented as appetite suppressants, which is one of the negative side effects in using Ritalin for growing children and teenagers.
Avatar m tn I have heard the symptoms of OCD, ADHD, ADD, and Depression. They all seem to fit what I am going through now. I have never had much self-confidence and I'm incredibly scared of revealing myself to people, especially my parents. I honestly have no idea where to go to find answers or how to confront my parents about my problems. Any help would be very-much appreciated.
Avatar n tn b) What if our son is some weird hybrid of diseases - what if he's 20% asbergers + 15% ADHD? What do we do then? Are there medications that can be safely taken in that situation?
Avatar n tn My daughter has tried putting him in time out and other forms of disipline but nothing works. He is very easlily agitated if things don't go his way. He jumps off furniture such as the bed or couch. He is very active and climbs everything. He throws things. He can speak well for his age and is very smart. He requires constant attention or I am afraid he will kill himself. Is this normal behavior or in your opinion, could he have sid?
Avatar n tn These children are then labeled from that point on.If you decide to seek further evaluation for ADHD,I would make sure you find someone highly qualified in dealing with disorder.
894766 tn?1241540001 ) She has not been officially diagnosed with Aspergers, but her psychologist and psychiatrist (she sees for her medications) both believe Aspergers is a realistic diagnosis for Katie. She has been diagnosed with ADHD and OCD and has been being treated for that for quite some time. She will be going for extensive testing in about 10 days. We are hoping to get the official diagnosis so she will be able to get some assistance at school.
Avatar n tn Dear Sir/Madam: I am 39 years old and three months ago I was diagnosed with ADHD, a disorder that has caused extreme problems for me since childhood and throughout my adult life, which began with my expulsion from kindergarten. I was prescribed a drug called Adderall (30 m.g. RX) after the 10 m.g. and 20 m.g. doses proved completely ineffective. I currently take 1 (one) 30 m.g.
5757880 tn?1395581622 Last night, at the wraparound meeting at the school they realized from the OT evaluation, that there are definite issues regarding my son and when his pysch fills out the forms, they will begin looking at testing him formally for an IEP. The only drawback to that is the OT person at the community schools roughly saw my son for 30 minutes while in class and told us he was fine, obviously she was wrong and I’m uncomfortable with the idea of her working with my son.
1390055 tn?1365618655 It was clear to my physicians that ADHD was still a problem. So they decided to try an ADHD/Anti-depressant combo, and from what I'm told, there's a possibility I fried my brain doing this. But I was only doing what I thought was best for me, but it's only the doctors that thought what was best for me in all honestly... At this point, I was now 17, the year was 2004, and my ADHD med included with the Zoloft initially was Seroquel.
739092 tn?1232235090 When my daughter was little my husband and I agreed that we wouldn't hit our children so we tried all other forms of disipline. We tried re-directing her attention to something that wasn't dangerious or against the house rules, we tried sitting down with her and talking to her about why she was misbehaving and why we were upset with her, we've tried taking the things that she uses to be distructive away, we've tried rewarding her for pro-longed good behaviour.
Avatar f tn However, while it is not unusual for a child to display various rates of developemnt in the various spheres of development, it does make sense to pursue the Speech/Language evaluation and therapy. From your various very detailed descriptions of your daughter's progress in various areas, I do not see her language behavior as indicative of any serious emotional condition. Could it be symptomatic of some type of learning disability?
Avatar n tn They have ranged from inability to focus, hyperactivity, aggression, preference of being around adults instead of children and so on. The first thought was ADHD...but after two years of working hard with him...ADHD does not seem to fit. I have researched anxiety disorders, dyslexia, oppositional defiant disorder, autism and so on. Nothing seems to fit just right. So here is what we are currently facing... At home my son has improved tremendously.
Avatar n tn Your description does not indicate Asperger's with any certitude by any means. To figure this all out it might be wise to seek an evaluation with a developmental pediatrician or developmental mental health professional.
