Avatar f tn All of the things that you have listed - I have seen in ADHD kids. What you need to do is to start to research what ADHD is and how to deal with the consequences of it. Understanding ADHD really makes a big difference in how you deal with the child. I mentioned the following books in a post below. Its worth your time to check them out. - "ADHD and Me, What I learned from lighting fires at the dinner table," by Blake Taylor.
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 m tn But before you ban all produce that could be laced with pesticides from your home for fear of an ADHD diagnosis in your children, hear what experts are saying about it. Then consider ways you can limit your kids’ pesticide exposure. Researchers looked at the urine concentration of organophosphates — one of the most common types of pesticides — in 1,139 children ages 8 to 15 and compared levels between those children with and without ADHD.
Avatar f tn i was addicted to crack while pregnant and feel very ashamed and alot of guilt. ive noticed alot of change in him in the last 3 weeks. he has never had any symptoms of a crack baby and is very smart for his age with some things. but recently his behavior has almost got out of control and i almost cant handle him. i feel bad for spanking him cause i blame myself. hes started screaming and hitting and is defiant. i plan on getting him into the dr.
Avatar f tn We try to control sugar intake. Anybody seen shakey hands in a kid like this. It seems to be worse in the morning and if he's running around being active. It slightly effects his writing. It makes him feel nervous and unable to sit still at times.
Avatar f tn Some of this is just plain genetics that are out of my control, but I know that there are issues that I can address to have a healthier baby girl. Where should I start? I have had her on ADHD meds before and I want to do everything I can to avoid it again.
327385 tn?1378360731 Your best bet is to try and find a peds doctor that specializes in ADD/ADHD. If she is found to have ADHD, so of the things she does might not go away, like the stealing. For me the last straw was when my daughter vandalized the neighbors boat, he wouldn't call the cops, so I did....she has stolen or vandalized a thing since. The only way I can describe my child with ADHD is like Pinocchio without the Jimmy Cricket (the little cricket telling him not to do bad things).
Avatar m tn I always had trouble wrting essays,my mind would not work and cause distress,and also when had to read a book.Is it possible that untreated ADHD got me into this mess,and if indeed i do have ADHD and treat it with medication, will it improve my situation(i will be less anxious in certain conditions because my mind would slow down and think more organised,i would be less agitated,less impulsive,i would procrastinate less,improve my depression)?
Avatar f tn I have adhd and so does the daddy baby will be here in march what do you all thank
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.
918457 tn?1244645682 html Give them a call and ask if they specialize in ADHD. I would think even one who specializes in kids with ADHD would be better than one without that experience. I can also recommend several good sites with info on ADHD if you are interested. Best wishes.
Avatar f tn Been reading a lot about foods that irritate ADHD and help with the symptoms. Also have been seeing a lot of postings about supplements/vitamins to use to help control ADHD symptoms. My son is 6 and has ADHD. Anyone out there with successful foods/supplements/vitamins that help? Thoughts?
Avatar f tn My hubby and i both has ADHD and are 29 weeks pregnant can are baby have ADHD to
Avatar f tn There has been no evidence to support active babies have adhd. Activity can be influenced by diet, exercise, and position. It's really not a reason to think there is anything wrong.
Avatar m tn its less overwhelming to the ADHD person also. Hang in thers and if you happen to kive in So Cal. Check out Loma Linda BHI. Its amazing and your insurance ahould pay for the program.

Avatar f tn Ibuprofen has a muscle relaxant in it that's very bad for the baby, it can make your uterus become lazy, don't take that lovely my doc says it's a no no!
Avatar m tn She is currently taking medicine which does help lessen the symptoms of the ADHD, however does nothing to help the ODD. Our house is in chaos because of this. No form of discipline works, and the defiance, lying, stealing, saying that she hates us(and her brother), calling everyone idiot, continues as soon as the punishment is completed. She apparently has no remorse, no does it seem to phase her in the least when she is in trouble.
Avatar n tn he sees the same dr so he knows the history and the troubles of my other children. after knowledge of adhd being hereditary in many cases, my problem has been diagnosing and starting medication. after many packets and pages of questionnaires, he scores well above the qualifying standards. the problem starts with the role of his teacher. her scores are just below qualifying standards. he won't diagnose or treat without the teachers scores.
Avatar f tn Anxiety is a common co-disorder of ADHD (usually caused by the ADHD). If you have ADHD, but your husband does not, the chances are less the baby will have it. If you both have it, the chances are higher. There are plenty of families who have one child with ADHD and one without. So, as far as I know, it is not possible to say for certain. Just that your chances are better then parents without ADHD. Hope this answers your question.
Avatar m tn By the way, I have seen several studies that show that sleep apnea can produce ADHD like symptoms. In fact, there have been several posters on here that have had sleep apnea, been treated and their daytime behaviors definitely changed. Has anybody ever commented about you snoring or breathing loud at night? "Regardless of type, an individual with sleep apnea is rarely aware of having difficulty breathing, even upon awakening.
