Avatar f tn For now, medications should control the symptoms and psychosocial support can tame the manifestations of adhd as well. Regards and God bless...
1453183 tn?1287852619 My son has been diagnosed with having ADD/ADHD and was put on Atterall and then a year ago the doctors took him off the medication and his schooling has suffered because of it. My question is would home schooling him help him or hurt him in anyway? And What else can I do to teach my child how to help control his symptoms?
Avatar f tn It's interfering with school work now and really bugging me. I checked out a list of ADHD symptoms from this website and found many that I could relate to.

Another source which I think that you will find very interesting is this Utube video by a young lady with ADD in which she describes her situation and symptoms. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rybVzoKOwWA Personally, I have found that frustration was a key factor in helping to identify a person with ADD.
Avatar n tn He rarely goes anywhere without his Gameboy and does not want to put it down.Are all these issues related to just ADHD,or could there be some other problem thas has not been identified?
329950 tn?1194801117 Yes you can have bipolar and ADHD however many ADHD symptoms are also bipolar symptoms and the diagnosis of ADHD is often a step to a real diagnosis of BP. In all things do not accept the diagnosis without proper testing and avoid Ritalin which is bad for Bipolars in so many ways for one thing its a stimulant and for another its a dangerous drug in its own right with addictive qualities and some nasty side effects.
207227 tn?1271420578 I have a medical background and very knowledgeable about things medical. My daughter has been showing symptoms that are half ADD/ADHD related and half Bipolar Child related. The symptoms are about half of each. I have taken her to a psychiatrist who said she MAY have a mood disporder (unipolar) and put her on Trileptyl. She had an allergic reaction to this and we had to stop it ASAP.
Avatar f tn We have seen so many unusual and concerning behaviors with our son for such a long period of time, there certainly must be some other issues in addition to ADHD. Our son exhibits many of the symptoms and behaviors of a Bi polar child, but not all. He is very moody, has unusualy erratic behavior, lies,cusses, threatens and disobeys all manner of authority. These are just a few of the many concerning behaviors that he exhibits. He usually sleeps and eats well however.
Avatar f tn my older son has Precious Puberty (early puberty), which made his emotional state very volatile. It helped him to know what was going on in side of him, and to know that puberty dose not lass forever and things would get better. Thankfully it was not caused by a tumor. There are a number of hormonal things that could cause behavioral issues, including; thyroid, pituitary, adrenal. Both my children are on med’s and both are doing well right now.
Avatar n tn I recently took my six year old son to the doctor because I am concerned about ADHD (its on hi fathers side) and ODD to go along with it. He was all the ADHD symptoms, and has violent,angry outbursts that match all ODD symptoms. After meeting with doctor and telling him all the things my son is doing he said yes definitely lets have him tested. Im still waiting on an appointment with a child psychologist so nothing has happened on that end yet.
Avatar f tn My 5 year old daughter started what I now know are symptoms of Tourette Syndrome at the age of 2. I want to say it started with stuttering then excessive and seemingly forced eye blinking. Because those particular "tics" stopped I contributed them to normal childhood tics however every few months some new tic would begin i.e humming sounds, smelling fingers constantly.... Now at age 5 she grunts, snorts and still makes humming sounds.
Avatar n tn You were not specific on the symptoms you experience, but my guess is that when you exercise you don't drink water, or you sweat to excess. This will dehydrate you and you will lose salt and other minerals. You can experience shaking of the hands, visual disturbances, headaches, stomach aches, stitches in the sides, exhaustion, low grade temps and other unpleasant symptoms. If this is the case, try drinking a fluid that has minerals in it like Cytomax.
Avatar n tn This collection of symptoms suggests several possible overlapping conditions: Tourette's Disorder, OCD and Inattentive-type ADHD. It would be prudent to seek an evaluation. You could start with a Pediatric Neurologist or with a Child Psychiatrist - either would be a reasonable plan. I don't think it's wise to try to address this by yourself, because one or more of these conditions (if indeed one or more is present) will require some pharmacological treatment.
Avatar n tn I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.
Avatar n tn And other conditions like sensory integration disorder or OCD and ADHD. If you tackle the sensory issues at a younger age, before puberty sets in, the brain is easier to change. I am told that adults can go through sensory integration therapy too, but it takes longer and probably isn't as easy. I've had hyper-sensitive senses my whole life, since an infant according to my mom.
Avatar n tn I myself at age 40 have tourette syndrome, however years ago, it was not diagnosed when my symptoms started around age 12, and I actually diagnosed myself as an adult when my daughter starting with tics at about age 2. She had all the same tics that you and others have mentioned. I took her at about age 6 to a neurologist and basically gave them my diagnosis in which they concurred was tourettes and she was on medication until about age 12.
Avatar f tn I read that medications can cause brain fog too. Could my ADHD medications be starting to metabolize differently with puberty? I really would like advice about this, as it doesn't seem to be clearing at all. I am scared that I will forget what "normal" feels like and have to live with this for a long time. I often cry at night, pleading for my old self back.
Avatar m tn Mostly the girls in the family don't seem to have many problems and they all like to talk all the time besides 1 out of the 4. I have put together a list of symptoms and things that I have noticed about myself present- to when I was born.

Avatar n tn It started with patches of gray hair and mood swings, then precocious puberty, a hamartoma (or recently mention of a neoplasm) of the right cerebral peduncle, then depression and anxiety, and a diagnosis of a mild learning disorder and now asthma and allergies to gluten, casein, and yeast. Also he shows, some autistic traits and some ADHD traits. He is doing better, but he is always fatigued. Tuberous Sclerosis has been mentioned, but no answers.
Avatar n tn My husband and I play with him and give him attention. He is very hyper and loud 24/7. Does this sound like ADHD? I put him in pre-school a year ago for a month and took him out cause he didnt say a word to anyone all day. He has a very poor appetite or I should say extremely picky, hardly eats. Im not sure if that has any effect. I took him to a phycologist a while back for a few visits and he gets nothing out of my son...wont talk.
Avatar n tn I do not believe that there are any medications for PDD-Nos or Autism, unless the person with PDD-Nos or Autism also has ADHD. About 40% of children with ADHD outgrow their ADHD symptoms around puberty. I believe that most people with PDD do not outgrow their diagnosis. ADHD children are also socially delayed, speech delayed and fine/gross motor delayed by 1 to 2 years versus their peers with same age.
1393879 tn?1288729049 There is absolutely no common ground of agreement over what parts of the brain would give rise to so many different behavioural symptoms. ADHD is not a disease nor is it a genetic (de)fault in some, and not others. The only means for the past several decades of "diagnosing" ADHD has been socially contigent. However, given the role of the doctor to conservative assume the child or adult to be "suffering" his condition, is enough, to "treat" for those symptoms.
Avatar f tn When I try to force myself I get minor seizure like symptoms and my stress level goes way up above average even though I meditate on a regular basis I get small scale sicknesses due to my immunity going down also it seems to be getting worse as time progresses. I have lost motivation for leisure activities as well which especially gets me worried. I went to several doctors including therapists and it has them all stumped.
1858622 tn?1319816803 He gets all out of sorts and cant sit still, wont eat or drink and feels overwhelmed, and stressed. My son is ADHD or maybe he just suffers from anxiety - I suppose in busy open area's I try my best to just clutch him and keep him close to me when he feels "weird" about such environments. I don't forces him to accept anything he doesn't want to accept. As for your daughter, just talk to her, and listen to her when she speaks.
Avatar f tn //www.medhelp.org/forums/ADD---ADHD/show/175 I have several good links on ADHD and weight loss as it is such a common problem.
Avatar n tn ) It's also not a surprise that he is acting out more at this age - it's a more volatile age for any kid. But the insecurity of puberty increases the insecurities that come with ADHD. He's scared and is acting out, at least in part, because of that. You need to make him feel secure, let him have his own time and space, and give him as predictable of a schedule as possible. Aside from that, he may find some relief in counseling.
Avatar f tn They say ADHD is like a diabetes - you can't cure it yet, but you can control symptoms. There is thousand things you can do, including changing the diet, discipline tactics, etc. However, if his cells are genetically not wired to uptake certain hormones - there is nothing you can do, but fix this. Please don't feel bad about ADHD medication. It is actually not fair NOT to give ADHD children the needed meds, because they want to be "good" themselves. They just can't help it.

Then what you want to try is an elimination diet. This kind of a diet will point out if food could be the cause. It is a difficult diet to administer, but this link will at least give you more information on it. http://www.medscape.
