Avatar n tn The person who diagnosed your daughter was he experienced only in ADHD? Have you looked at DSM IV for autism/aspergers/ADHD to see what the difference is in the criterias? If you google DSM IV you can look at the diagnostic criteria for the three different disorders. Start to keep a daily dairy and make notes of all her behaviours which you think are Aspergers or ADHD.
Avatar n tn Your description did not mention any such preoccupations. The DSM-IV-TR, the manual that guides diagnosis, indicates that many individuals with Asperger's initially receive a diagnosis of ADHD. I think it would be worthwhile to have your son evaluated to be sure that he is receiving the amount and type of support that he needs. Whether or not he receives a diagnosis, it will be important for you and your son's school to work with him on his social issues.
Avatar f tn The dsm-iv is the official information on which psych diagnoses are made. I would check out the dsm-iv for bpd. Problems with mood. Depression, anxiety. Reactive mood, meaning you react to events around you. Impulsive behavior. Spending, speeding, sex, drugs, etc. Safety issues. Suicidal thoughts, urges, gestures, attempts plus self-harming. Sensitivity to abandonment, rejection and criticism. Identity issues. Not knowing who you are or what you want. Eating disorders.
Avatar m tn Looking at a DSM, it seems as if PTSD and ADHD share similar symptomology (impulsivity, irritability, attention difficulties etc..). She is being treated for the ADHD with Vyvanse (40mg). Is this common? I would think that the doctors are overlooking the PTSD and are treating the ADHD instead...and is Vyvanse ok'd for PTSD?
Avatar n tn what drug clasification per the DSM-IV does coriciden fit into, or does it fit anywhere?
Avatar m tn why do they call Adderall a stimulant when it says in the DSM-IV-TR it is or has no localized anesthetic area one can sense in their mind or body? if it causes a alteration of feelings and emotions and natural instinctual impulses which become dull, how is it a stimulant?
Avatar f tn Patients with POTS (n=21), ADHD (n=18) and normal control subjects (n=20) were assessed for DSM-IV psychiatric disorders and completed a battery of questionnaires that assessed depression, anxiety and ADHD characteristics. Results: • Patients with POTS did not have an increased prevalence of major depression or anxiety disorders, including panic disorder, compared to the general population. Patients with POTS had mild depression.
Avatar f tn You dont say what Meds these children are taking they are sometimes the c ause of more behavioral problems I would suggest you take a look , put in side effects and the name of the Drug and see if you get any input from it.
Avatar n tn The diagnostic criteria for each disorder can be found in the dsm-iv. Try typing in dsm-iv for borderline personality disorder (bpd) or bipolar or schizophrenia.
709940 tn?1231900307 I would go back to your GP/Paediatrician and tell them you want referring to a multi-disciplinary team that has experience of diagnosing autism and aspergers. Have you googled DSM IV Aspergers/Autism/PDD NOS to get the clinical criteria the professionals are looking for? As you will see any child only has to get some of the behaviours in the areas mentioned. I would then begin making a daily diary of behaviours he shows that meets the criteria.
Avatar f tn For a child to be diagnosed by the DSM-IV (1994) Criteria, they must have ADHD problems in two or more places. If the only person they asked was the parent, both you and I know that a lot more kids would be diagnosed as having ADHD due to poor parenting skills. The problem is what other choice is there.
Avatar f tn Try looking up the dsm-iv for depression. That lists criteria needed to be diagnosed. Very basically: low energy, low mood, either too much or too little sleep, changes in appetite (either increased or decreased), trouble concentrating, etc. Maybe thoughts of suicide. Are they linked? If anything, untreated reflux is enough to make anyone depressed (through pain, sleep deprivation, etc). Depression may lower immunity making one more susceptible to illness.
574118 tn?1305135284 I posted a question in the ADHD forum asking whether an ADHD can become manic, so perhaps my previous OCD was transformed into ADHD and not BP. Seemingly ADHD and BP are interwinned. Because if ADHD CAN turn manic so why not many diagnosed BP are not so and are rather ADHD. I remember once my pdoc said psychic illness come in a group of diseases. Apparently nobody knows. I'm really fed up. Here in the middle of nowhere where i live i even doubt pdocs heard of the term ADHD.
2135565 tn?1345944437 ve had this problem my whole life and I was so scared, and the fact that I found this is the DSM-IV has relieved much anxiety. This is real! I was so scared I was some crazy sicko :( What I want to know is, does anyone else in the world have this or is it just me? I'm pretty sure if its in the DSM theres got to be a lot of other people too. I just dont know what to do about it bc I want to grow up and get married and have kids and have a normal life. I just want to be normal..
Avatar n tn If you google DSM IV and look for Aspergers that will give you a list of the behaviours that the professionals will be looking for when they observe your son. I agree that if you are having these problems then it would be useful for your son to get an evaluation through Health. This will involve a number of professionals observing him and testing him. But if he does get a diagnosis, it will help you get supports for him in school. Also have a look on the autism and aspergers forums.
Avatar m tn My PCm and Neuro both feel as though the lesions are from years ago the neuro psych testing DSM iv showed ADHD, cognitive, LD, Conversion DIS, among other dx just wanting answers.
5757880 tn?1395578022 Mind you, the doctor cannot test my son for Autism because the medical community in my area still follows the DSM-4 and the school system follows DSM-5, so they informed me to ask the school to test him in his 2nd semester. However, the doctor stated per the information provided, my son is high probability for high-functioning autism. So, after a lengthy conversation with my husband (who isn't big on giving meds to children), we both agreed that with his ADHD med (methlophyidate.
Avatar n tn The Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Dissociative Disorders is edited by M. Steinberg (Published by American Psychiatric Press, Washington, 1993) I hope you find tjis information helpful. It is provided for general medical educational purposes only, and should not replace consultation with your physician for diagnostic and treatment options pertaining to your problems.
Avatar n tn Have you looked at the diagnostic criteria for Aspergers? You can google DSM IV Aspergers and see what the characteristics are. It is also common for child to have bits and pieces of different disorders. For example my son's main diagnosis is autistic spectrum disorder and he is considered high functioning because he has above average cognitive ability. But he can also be impulsive sometimes and have problems with focus and attenton which may be down to ADD.
