Avatar n tn Daydreaming is often with ADD/ADHD. ADD/ADHD symptoms and twitching/tremors/tics can all be caused by a magnesium deficiency.
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 f tn People think I'm imagining it because they say, why did you get the symptoms all of a sudden in college. No, I've had the symptoms my entire life. But in the past, things are easy for me in classes so I got A's and honors and I never actually, truly studied. They started becoming a problem when I went to college and took incredibly intensive courses.
918457 tn?1244649282 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 f tn I went to the psyc to sort out my headaches and binge eating and guess what? Here I am ADHD inattentive (the lethargic daydreaming type without hyperactivity). I tried Ritalin but got a rash and chest pain so I am on Dex now and feeling grat so far. Good luck. I hope this gets sorted out for you.

Avatar n tn As a child, I had many of the same issues, and by the age of 10 my teachers were complaining that I was constantly daydreaming. My parents sent me for counseling and I saw a neurologist who ran a series of tests and diagnosed me with petit mal epilepsy, now known as generalized absence seizures. I have read that this condition is hereditary. Could my son, who exhibits so much of the same behavior, be suffering from the same condition? Should I consult a doctor about his behavior?
Avatar n tn If his only symptom is daydreaming, I would honestly be quite hesitant to treat him with stimulants. Especially in light of his academic successes. I would recommend creating some worksheets on his academic level, and observing him in a quiet environment. Is his day dreaming really disruptive? Another test would be to observe him during normal play, or while watching television. Periodically throughout the day, you may also want to see how difficult it is to get his attention.
Avatar f tn Many other conditions and situations can trigger behavior that resembles ADHD.
Avatar m tn 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 All of the kids in our schools are selling adderal and ritalin for $3-$5 each and it's become a real problem in our schools. Well anyway here are the list of bipolar symptoms for children. The symptoms in adults are different.

Avatar f tn I usually just end up thinking more about focusing than actually focus ing and end up daydreaming. I've always had a problem with fidgeting. I can't sit down without jiggling my leg, or tapping my pencil. I move around in my seat so much that I get told off, at home and at school. Whenever I start a new hobby, I can't seem to do it for more than a few months without it becoming a chore. Even if I chose to do it, and I previously loved it.
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 n tn Children who display ADHD can, but often do not, display hyperactivity as a component of the ADHD (the accurate diagnosis - ADD is a commonly used term to represnt ADHD without hyperactivity, but from a technical standpoint there really is no formal diagnosis called ADD). Medication can be of benefit with children who display attentional problems even when no hyperactivity is present. Absence seizures are a form of seizure disorder, a different condition than ADHD.

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 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 There must be dozens of sources on the net alone which will give you a run down on the symptoms. Why don't you tell us what you're experiencing so that we can give you our impressions rather than me list a whole bunch of things which may be irrelevant to your case.
362203 tn?1248813910 I've always found my own docs to be very open and non-stereotyping when I see them about my ADHD. It seems obvious that the symptoms you are experiencing are bothersome to you. I can't tell you whether or not what you are experiencing IS or IS NOT add/adhd, but I can say that if it is, a working relationship with your doctor is crucial. I hope you do take the next step and hope to hear from you with good news!

Avatar m tn Focusing and impulse control issues are symptoms of ADHD. You may need to have your son evaluated by his pediatrician to determine if this or any other disorder is at stake. Disciplining your son for these behaviors to teach him self control is always a good idea. However, if these behaviors are occurring as a direct result of a disorder, then the discipline could backfire. which is yet another reason to have him evaluated ASAP.
952564 tn?1268372247 I know I've shared symptoms similiar to those like you're describing. I was diagnosed w/ADD/ADHD and put on meds specific to that disorder. What an immediate difference they made! Talk to your doc...good luck, friend!
Avatar n tn Hello, I am imagining that if your grandson received a diagnosis of bipolar disorder, that he has been very disruptive to the household and probably aggressive. It would make sense for a sibling, particularly a younger one, to experience a high level of stress in this situation, though that is great that she is not exhibiting bipolar symptoms.
Avatar n tn I am still not a fan of giving him medication, but scholastically, it was exactly what he needed. What I would like to know, is there a possiblity some of the symptoms of ADHD are caused by food allergies?
Avatar f tn My son who is now 33 had very similar problems, he was diagnosed with ADHD with dysgraphia, hyperauditory and discalculus at the age of 6. It was a struggle thoughout school but he is doing great now. If she read the pictures could she be dyslexic? The staring and blinking could be seizure activity. A lot of children that seem to be daydreaming are actually having absence seizures which causes problems in keeping up with work.
