Avatar f tn It is the nature of ADHD to be evident via children's behavior. By definition ADHD has an impact on behavior. Beyond saying this, without more detail I cannot comment on the situation to which you are referring.

Avatar f tn 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?
793266 tn?1275479663 Today I started adding fish oil and a B-complex vitamin for the adhd symptoms, and vitamin D for thyroid/mood. I am taking fish oil at dinner, B at all meals, and D at one meal. I am hoping these will increase energy, memory, and decrease AdHd symptoms and mood swings.
Avatar n tn 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). The Mayo Clinic (2016) describes IED as "repeated, sudden episodes of impulsive, aggressive, violent behavior or angry verbal outbursts in which you react grossly out of proportion to the situation.

1094647 tn?1257191822 They are almost always harmless and is common in elderly people. They sometimes do not cause any signs or symptoms and are often found incidentally on MRI, CT or ultrasound. They do not require any treatment, except for those cysts that becomes so large and may affect other organs. These are usually surgically removed. I hope this helps. Take care and do keep us posted.
521840 tn?1348840771 These same childhood symptoms take on different forms in adults with ADHD. For example, most adults with ADHD are not floridly hyperactive. Instead, an adult is more likely to report ‘inner restlessness’ or problems with impulsivity. Symptoms of ADHD impact important adult tasks such as remembering to pay the mortgage, paying attention while driving, or managing your children’s schedules.
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).

5856747 tn?1403348682 ADHD is diagnosed on the bases of the child’s behaviour alone. This may be done using the International Classification of Diseases or ICD-10. There are no other tests to confirm the diagnosis and this again may cause difficulty in accepting ADHD as a disorder. Features of ADHD behaviour will include: • Inattention to instructions. • Inability to learn or retain. • Inability to stay with a specific task or to complete it. • Inability to hold attention to what is being said to them.
Avatar m tn Children who are or have been on ADHD drugs have an increased risk of committing suicide.Even the American Psychiatric Association admits that suicide is the major adverse reaction of withdrawal from these drugs. Clarke reports that “symptoms usually peak within two to four days after withdrawal of the drugs although depression and irritability may persist for months. Suicide risk can persist for years.
Avatar n tn Your son may well display ADHD, but it is important to arrange a thorough evaluation and not rush too quickly to the diagnosis. The on-line surveys can be useful tools to see if a person might display symptoms typical of ADHD, but a thorough assessment will consider a child's medical history, family history, current functioning at home and in school, possible alternative explanations for the symptoms identified on the surveys, etc.

Avatar n tn I am teacher's mother. 61 and ADHD. I benefit from medication but can't afford it now. She is also ADHD. There is a theory that this situation has a connection with L-dopa. My mother had Parkinson's, which is an L-dopa situation. I know others who had Parkinson's parents and ADHD children. More than a coincidence, I think. So, very much a biological situation. And genetic.
1462810 tn?1327360449 I believe, based only on what I've read, my own symptoms, test results, and failed treatments, that both ADD/ADHD and fibromyalgia are just symptom cascades of adrenal exhaustion... And that treating the symptoms without addressing the changes required to treat the cause is criminal.
Avatar m tn it's very unlikely that anyone would suddenly become ADHD in adulthood. the brain is shaped by genetics as well as life experiences from the minute you're born, so if a person is 18 years and has always been organized, thorough, efficient and able to concentrate well on any given task, by that time their brain is pretty much hard-wired to work in a way consistent with those traits.
494594 tn?1212967928 I understand that there is a lot of media attention (excuse the pun) on ADD, ADHD, impulsivity, inattention. However, symptoms of inattention or restlessness are common in many learning and emotional problems such as learning disabilities, anxiety, moodiness, and motivational issues. So if I go to the car mechanic and ask him or her to check only my battery because of the screeching noise, I would be remiss in not also having the whole car looked at.
