Avatar m tn Well, daydreaming or inability to concentrate is certainly one sign of ADD or ADHD. It might be worth your time to check out the following link and if it seems possible that you have ADD, you talk with your own doctor or college counselor. It is very possible that a small amount of medication at the right time could make a big difference for you. Here is the link - http://www.help4adhd.
Avatar n tn Our child does have facial twitching, shoulder shrugs, and various other things, as well as ADD symptoms like daydreaming in class, not completing assignments, being forgetful, etc. I could list them all but I'm sure that's really necessary. They did an EEG and blood work and urine tests to rule out other things such as lead and copper and such. Can anyone please help to explain all this and why it's so much - or are they all related?
Avatar n tn My question is: is there any correlation between adhd and absence seizures...can adhd be mistaken for absence seizures?

Avatar n tn My daughters symptoms went away quickly my son need a pretty high dose because his symptoms were more severe. The tricky part in this is the ADHD because the ADHD meds can make OCD symtoms worse! They are stimulants. Try only the seratonin med first. Sometimes ADHD can be solved with only this. You need a good Neuropsychologist here for the Tourettes/ADHD. They are the brain chemical experts. Not a Neurologist. Insist on an MRI w/ your Neurologist though!
Avatar m tn Since I wake up until I sleep I am always daydreaming/ imagining. I spend 95%of my time daydreaming. When I am watching TV, when I am walking, when I listen o music, etc; I am always daydreaming. Sometimes overall at night I even laugh very loud and talk to the persons that are in my head. I talk to them. I cannot stay in reality, not even for 5 entire minutes. I always have to imagine something.

Avatar m tn i have done extensive research on this and havent found anything that matches, i do not have adhd or add. i have however found a few others that are facing this same predicament. all of us do not know what this is.
473760 tn?1215219977 I have this problem, and I was honestly just wondering if any of you out there have the same issue. Sometimes during the day (any time of day) out of nowhere I start daydreaming. I day dream about all kinds of things...and I mean ALL kinds of things. Regardless, when I get into this state I find it very hard to get myself out.
Avatar f tn Wow, this describes how I was in school exactly. I would try so hard to pay attention, and I could for awhile and then I would be daydreaming again. I made A's and was not a behavior problem at all. It is really hard to keep interested when you can't pay attention. I was a very well behaved kid until I was a teenager. It was just too hard to pay attention in school so when I was a teen, I just kind of gave up trying. I was finally diagnosed ADHD when I was an adult.
918457 tn?1244645682 Ok, don't follow the multi-tasking comment....I've been dianosed twice with ADHD at two different hospitals. I can multi-task better than anyone i know. The more thats going on, the better i work. It's the focusing on one particular thing thats a problem. Other small "symptoms" of ADHD that I know of that I do: cant listen to the same song or watch the same show for longer than a minute before turning it.
Avatar n tn When thinking about adult ADHD, keep in mind that it has to be a condition that has been with you since childhood (if the symptoms have come on suddenly, then it is not likely to be ADHD), and a general rule of thumb is that adults with ADHD have symptoms significant enough to interfere with their being able to achieve in accordance to their intellectual potential. Your situation is frustrating and confusing I am sure, but the symptoms you describe may not be ADHD.
Avatar n tn Concerning you being unable to stay focused, with the limited information that is provided, it is hard to say whether you have ADHD. ADHD appears more often in boys than in girls and causes disruption in school, occupation and at home.
Avatar m tn Honestly, I don't really know a lot about OCD. I did notice, though, that some of your symptoms are similar to symptoms my sister has. She has been diagnosed with ADHD and Asperger's (form of autism). I really think you should find someone who can listen to you and find a diagnosis that will hopefully make more sense to your situation. Once that can get accomplished, they will be able to help you manage these symptoms better.
Avatar f tn I'm a fourteen year old girl, and ever since o can remember, I've n bed been good at concentrating. Even with small tasks, like getting dressed, I often get distracted and end up doing something completely different, without even finishing dressing. I find it impossible to concentrate on anything I find boring. No matter how hard I try, I just can't get my brain to focus on it. I usually just end up thinking more about focusing than actually focus ing and end up daydreaming.

Avatar n tn Posted By Rich on March 05, 1999 at 05:11:36: I am a 21 year old student and I have been troubled all my life with the following problems: When I am on my own, I find it very difficult(impossible) to stay seated to do homework or study. Instead I find an irresistible need to stay running around (eg: in my room) for hours and daydreaming while running around. In front of people I don't behave like this and behave normally, since people seem to attract my attention.
Avatar n tn depression, ADHD (inattentive), OCD. MD is so far considered a result of trauma and is considered dissociative. I think this is probably true since most people will admit to have had some sort of trauma like childhood physical or sexual abuse. It is described as an addiction and I personally can relate. You get this high from fantasizing usually over things you would not want people to know about.

Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with depression during the summer of 2012. I take pills and it is not helping much. I don't know what to do. But I don't think that's the problem right now. My problem is that ever since I was 12 (I'm 15 now) I've been daydreaming nonstop. I make up situations and stories in my head all the time. In class, when I'm shopping, when I take a shower, and especially when I listen to music.
Avatar n tn We are trying to avoid going to a Clinical psychologist who will tell us he is FREAKING ADHD (every child is diagnosed with this if he dares to get bored in Maths!) But at the end of the day we want whats best for him. His marks are ridiculous (87% English, Sciences in the 90’s!) His teachers all say obviously the academic side is not a problem. So if it is emotional, then surely keeping him down a year will be worse for his concentration level. He has done Grade 4 (and has the certificates!
362203 tn?1248810310 It proven that several of ADD symptoms are similiar to manic symptoms of Bipolar Disorder. That is why SO MANY people go undiagnosed when they have ADD. I am not saying this is the case for you but that it's very important to see a GOOD psychiatrist before you decide to take medication. How do you know whether or not a psychiatrist is good? They will spend as much time with you as you need in order to assess the symptoms.
