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.
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 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 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 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 m tn With age, a decrease in observable symptoms of ADHD seems to occur. Adults with ADHD have a longer delay before refocusing when their attention is misdirected, and they have difficulty switching tasks. The hyperactivity and impulsivity of adult ADHD are often more subtle than those symptoms types in children.

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.

5274485 tn?1385860167 The symptoms are clinical the same for both boys and girls. My own experience in meeting girls with autism spectrum disorders confirm the clinical view; I have yet to find a girl with autism spectrum disorder who differ from my self and other boys with autism spectrum disorder I know in talk of symptoms.
Avatar f tn Also, while the neurology department diagnosed him with CP, they just referred us to the orthopedic for treatment, so his treating doctor at the hospital is not a neurologist. Could these symptoms be evident of a progression in his illness or are they even relevent? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. I really feel in the dark on this subject and at a real loss living so far from anyone who specializes in it.
Avatar m tn // I think my main question would be - is your doctor a pediatrician? The reason I ask is that, your son might well do better with a psychiatrist or a psychologist that has more experience with ADHD kids. However, some pediatricians have lots of experience - so it all depends.
Avatar f tn Looking back from age 68 now, I would say that the ADHD has pretty well maintained the same level. Lately,however, additional symptoms are creeping in, and it is not easy to determine whether they are due to my advancing years or to an increase in attention deficit. I am referring to greater difficulty focusing on reading and listening. I also struggle now with remembering names, appointments, the content of conversations etc.

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 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.
Avatar f tn My daughter will be 9 in June and was diagnosed with ADHD in second grade. I was skeptical of the dissorder at first, and after trying behavior therapy and working with the school, decided to allow her to be on vyvanse. The medication works great with helping her to focus, but ever since she started taking it she has lost weight and now has become obsessed with biting her finger nails and skin around her nails.
Avatar n tn My 6 year old daughter (Kindergarten) is not classified as learning disabled,however, we suspect she has some ADHD symptoms. She was evaluated about 2 years ago and our pediatrician felt she couldn't be further evaluated until she was 6 or 7. Given these symptoms, she seems to function pretty well in school and with new friends. Our greater concern is her excessive hugging.
Avatar f tn My hubby and i both has ADHD and are 29 weeks pregnant can are baby have ADHD to
Avatar f tn 1. Destructiveness may be seen in both disorders but differs in origin. Children who are ADHD often break things carelessly while playing (“non-angry destructiveness”), whereas the major destructiveness of children who are bipolar is not a result of carelessness but tends to occur in anger. Children who are bipolar may exhibit severe temper tantrums during which they release manic quantities of physical and emotional energy, sometimes with violence and physical property destruction. 2.
Avatar f tn // Its also possible that she could have a learning disability which is kind of normal for kids with ADHD, so she should also be tested for that. And she also has some symptoms for Sensory Processing Disorder. Here is a link for that. I hope this gives you enough information to start getting her some help.
1768088 tn?1409087815 You have to be careful because what you might think are ADHD symptoms, could really be SID symptoms and stim meds will not help with that and could make it worse. I would call your doctor and see about cutting back on the dosage for a starter. Hope this helps. Let me know if or how the dosage change goes. Oh, Is this basically her first week of school? That whole process can be kind of scary and throw things off.
