Avatar m tn Richard Saul March 14, 2014 Over the course of my career, I have found more than 20 conditions that can lead to symptoms of ADHD, each of which requires its own approach to treatment. Raising a generation of children—and now adults—who can't live without stimulants is no solution.
Avatar n tn html Your son must exhibit the behaviors described in this definition to be considered ADHD. I think that it is wise to have a behavioral specialist. However, your post mentions nothing about discipline imposed. It sounds fairly obvious that your son requires structure, limit setting, and discipline. This is where you need to be focusing your efforts, not medicating him.
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.
220090 tn?1379170787 You are lucky that it was not long-lasting while you were working. Many would ignore the symptoms but you were smart and sought help. Thanks for sharing.
1734603 tn?1310425995 Bowel and bladder symptoms include frequency of micturition, urine leakage, eye symptoms like double vision uncontrollable rapid eye movements, facial pain, painful muscle spasms, tingling, burning in arms or legs, depression, dizziness, hearing loss, fatigue etc. The treatment is essentially limited to symptomatic therapy so the course of action would not change much whether MS has been diagnosed or not.
1734603 tn?1310425995 For over 6 months, I've experienced some bizarre symptoms which are probably related. There is no supposed cause, even after I've had a CT scan, an EEG and visits with two neurologists. They've found nothing wrong (ie No brain tumor, no meningitis, no poison, no neurological abnormalities). I know for a fact that all these things are real and have happened to me. Family and friends have seen my symptoms in action. I just need to know what I'm dealing with and how to make it better.
1734603 tn?1310425995 I have previously posted this in Undiagnosed Symptoms and Neurological Disorders. Dr. Sharma (as well as most other posters on those discussions) have suggested that I post again in autoimmune disorders and that I get tested for Multiple Sclerosis. For over 6 months, I've experienced some bizarre symptoms which are probably related. There is no supposed cause, even after I've had a CT scan, an EEG and visits with two neurologists.
Avatar n tn Definition: Crepitus is a symptom characterized by a crackling or grating feeling or sound under the skin, around the lungs or in the joints. In soft tissues, crepitus is often due to gas, most often air, that has abnormally penetrated and infiltrated an area (for example, in the soft tissues beneath the skin). In a joint, crepitus can indicate cartilage wear in the joint space. The term "crepitus" is derived from the Latin, meaning "a crackling sound or rattle.

Avatar f tn Constipation Hypertension or high blood pressure Anxiety Depression Insomnia Fatigue Sound like anyone that you know?? It's practically the definition of all of the Symptoms of Fibromyalgia! Even high cholesterol, diabetes and osteoporosis are related to low levels of magnesium. Even some so-called 'Side Effects' of substances are actually due to the Magnesium Depletion that they cause- and are not really 'side effects' in and of themselves.
Avatar f tn This is in relation to a post I made on a urology board. I was diagnosed with adhd as a child and was on and off medications through much of my pre-teen/adolescent years. With out telling my life story, I'll explain my situation. Basically what I found out through the urology forum was that I was experiencing sexual anhedonia from my recent re-prescription of adderall xr 30 mg daily (I'm a 24 year old male now).
Avatar n tn I am not a doctor but I do have a master's degree in psychology, as well as a history of the same symptoms. Other members of my family have these symptoms, as well. What you are describing sounds similar to a disorder separate from ADHD that I studied in my post-graduate classes called Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED).
Avatar m tn Patients and their families, however, should be evaluated fully and use other treatment methods in conjunction with medication. Because the symptoms of tic disorders overlap those of OCD and ADHD, it is essential to determine which symptoms are causing the greatest concern and impairment, and treat the patient according to the single diagnostic category that best fits him or her, whether it is a tic disorder, OCD, or ADHD.
Avatar f tn When one or more of these functions is disrupted, symptoms can result. These symptoms can interfere with a person's general functioning, including social and work activities and relationships. What Are the Symptoms of Depersonalization Disorder? The primary symptom of depersonalization disorder is a distorted perception of the body. The person might feel like he or she is a robot or in a dream. Some people might fear they are going crazy and might become depressed, anxious, or panicky.
Avatar n tn I appreciate your comments too, especially that one you made about how adderall's side effects create ADHD like symptoms is something that I've thought about before but never been able to really articulate. There are a few other related things I'd be interested in asking you about as well. But thanks again and good night!
574118 tn?1305138884 Bi-polar people tend to spend to much have sex to easy and do really extream behaviours when they are manic. I dont do anything remotely like that. I more like ADHD hyper but not ADHD my phycologist explained that anxiety or more the adrenalin causes hyper behaviour. Which is exactly why I felt I was hyper when I'm anxious. I'm not using up the adrenalin that is being produced. What were you doing when you came off med's.
Avatar f tn I have depression abd add, my sister has anxiety and depression and adhd. The babys father has depression and adhd. So im pretty sure my child will have something but that doesnt change them one bit.
Avatar dr m tn Streptococcal bacteria are very common, but there’s one particular strain called Group A beta-Hemolytic Streptococcus (GABHS) that tested for and treated, since toxins produced by this strain can potentially damage the heart or the kidneys. In theory, non-GABHS bacteria can also give you similar miserable symptoms, but if severe, doctors will typically give you oral antibiotics, which will make you feel better in most cases.
Avatar m tn I also have been on 20mg Amphetamine Salts (Adderall) for over 5 years due to ADHD. My HDL was at 48, a bit lower than I want but everything else was good. I used to be overweight when I was younger until 15 years old. I have smoked/drank when I was 15-19 but I have completely stopped for the past year. My family has had a plethora of Thyroid issues, my mother got hers removed. I work in a sales at a call center and I am on the phone 5 days a week for at least 4-5 hours.
Avatar f tn I looked up SPD all of the symptoms do not fit her maybe if you could give me your definition or even some things you have experienced with your child

973741 tn?1342346373 It is not too uncommon for sensory kids to have tics as well as kids with other nervous system disorders such as add/adhd. Concerns me though for the social implications of this. Any one have any thoughts?
Avatar f tn She says she's not sure if he is on the autism spectrum mildly and has another underlying condition such as ADD/ADHD or if he has a mild case of ADD/ADHD and is "quirky". Now, this is making me nervous because I thought that the very definition of Aspergers is that they are very high functioning on the autism spectrum. Therefore in a "safe" one-on-one evaluation with adults the symptoms may not show. Am I overthinking this?
5553333 tn?1369944648 ) used primarily to treat ADD/ADHD. Were you put on that for the shaking? Do you have an ADD/ADHD diagnosis? I would recommend findind a new doctor, who can look at the situation from a fresh perspective, and offer other options. Don't write off medications in general based on just ONE...one that was likely completely inappropriate to be Rx'ed.
Avatar n tn Is a junkie by all definition of the word. She will take ANYTHING! I had a bottle of Seroquel one time I used for sleep. I would break the pill in half, break that half in half, that half in half and then again. I was taking 1/16th of a pill to help sleep. It was so strong I would still feel it the next morning. Not cool. I tell you this as an example. My mom stole them and took all of them at once. She has stolen meds from me and my siblings and my dad.
184674 tn?1360864093 So they told me they were certain that he did not have ADHD. I was convinced he didn't have ADHD either. Since starting first grade and being in vision therapy, he not only has maintained straight A's in school, but his teacher has told me he's "a model student" and one of her "best students" and most days, "hardly knows he's there" because he's well-behaved and gets his work done.
Avatar n tn I was not surprised to hear the oldest has ADHD as many of this symptoms and reactions are similar to what I have seen in the past. When did he first start on meds? Was it not till he was a teenager? And was stimulant meds the only thing he was put on or did they also have him on any other medications? While your younger son does not seem to fit the ADHD model, I would not be surprised to find out that he has ADD. You might want to check out his link - https://www.
Avatar f tn I've read there is a bit of overlap between ADHD and aspergers/autism. At one time a psychologist almost changed my diagnosis to ADHD but decided to keep it at PDD NOS. Plus no matter what your son is your son. Nothing has changed here.
