Common Questions and Answers about Adhd symptoms teenage girls


Avatar n tn are teenage girls more mature than teenage boys?
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 m tn but i never got close to my potential. my wife passed 6 weeks ago, and i am now the single father of 2 teenage girls. i made an appt with my psych and asked him for help with my lack of focus. we agreed on a dx of ADD, but he will not treat me. says i am too old and too sick. i have become conditioned to challenge my drs. sooooo, do i need a 2nd opinion.
Avatar f tn Good luck on getting a proper diagnosis. It sounds like they are at least treating the symptoms she is having. Teenage years are such a hard time period anyways, with hormones changing.
Avatar f tn ( long story ) However, over the past 3 to 4 years she has been treated for ADHD and been on a verity of different meds. Her older brother is ADHD as well. Her symptoms are not nearly as sever as his was. Her father was diagnosed with bi-polar about 6 years ago. From that time he has talked to her about his condition, I feel way to openly, and she has always had a fear that she could "get" it too.
Avatar n tn He has been seen by a neurologist, psychiatrist and developmental therapist and they came together and diagnosed him with over 10 different criteria meeting ADHD, Opositional Defiant Disorder, Anxiety, Language Disorder, Aspergers, Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Seperation Disorder, Mood Disorder, Borderline Disorder, Multiple Complex Disorder and Psycosis.
Avatar n tn I have realized that there are a lot of people new to this forum who have a knowledge of natural ways to manage the symptoms of ADHD. I have a son, age 7, one of 4, who has ADHD. He has been taking fish oil for over a year now. We have stuck to the feingold diet to the best of our ability. Neither of these have been enough to curb his behavior. We have ALWAYS corrected inappropriate behavior immediatly and consistantly.
Avatar f tn My son and I were all we had as his father had stepped out of his life for a long time and had slowly reentered. My son has undiagnosed Asperger's, previous symptoms of ADHD. My husband wants him fully proecuted and I understand, but this is also my son. We've been told he may not face any jail time due to his mental state and his age as well of his previous victim status. My hubby and his ex wants maximum sentence and we know we both need counseling on this issue.
Avatar f tn For instance she doesnt care if certain people die and sometimes she wants to kill people,She has been calling larger girls fat, a friend at school has told her that her mum & dad have sex and now she constantly says she wants sex with boys & she cant get the word sex out of her head.She has an inability not to say anything that she has in her head and tells me everything she does, i.
544292 tn?1268886268 Various withdrawal effects may include shakes, shivers, diarrhea, nausea, and possible flu-like symptoms. Not all people experience will all withdrawal symptoms, and some people may experience others not listed here. The length of time withdrawal symptoms occur can range from a couple of days to weeks depending on how high your dose was and how long you were on the drug. Withdrawal symptoms can be reduced by discontinuing use of the drug slowly (i.e., gradually reducing the daily dose).
551343 tn?1506834118 The last person she wrote to declined as she said all my symptoms are neurological and although my neuro knows a lot are he thinks and has always thought that there is more than one thing going on. So back on the trail. My GP is going to arrange for me to see a different rheumatologist in the city rather than local. I dont care as long as I get somewhere. All I want is some peace no pain is that too much to ask really.
Avatar f tn New testing was done and will get results this week, but as for now it is Adhd and possible aspergers.Concerta was for adhd and the zoloft was prescribed because he gets vocal tics on stimulants. Not the best choice but it is what I guess needs to be done otherwise we have nothing to help with hyperactivity. Have asked dr. about other meds, but doesn't seem to offer anything else. I don't know that meds is the only answer.
Avatar f tn Not sure I understand the problem. Most (or all?) of what you posted is what she used to do. Kids do things. Heck, teenage girls are at a very weird age. But what is she doing now that bothers you? You said she "does not steal now".
543624 tn?1214244091 I don't know what your story is, like how long you were doing drugs but it is sad to see because you are so young. I also do not know if your symptoms are that of drug abuse or of depression. It does sound a lot like depression to me. Can you talk with your parents and ask them to get you to a doctor for a full check up, including blood work. That way they can rule out anything physical and if it is depression, they can help you with that.
Avatar n tn While children will often have a reaction to certain foods consumed, this intolerance does not cause ADHD and following a specific diet, such as the Feingold Diet, has not proven to alter ADHD symptoms. Research also shows that sugar does not cause hyperactivity. Many factors can cause children to have problems paying attention besides an attention deficit disorder.
Avatar n tn Have you tried Focalin for ADHD? My son was put on that first and it seemed to take the edge off his tantrums (by no means did they go away)! He had to be taken off them for a short period as we were in the middle of diagnosing Tourettes and wanted to make sure the meds weren't making the tics worse (they weren't). When we took him off the Focalin...OMG...the tantrums were 5-10 a day and 2 hour tantrums were not uncommon. With all the doors and windows closed...he could be heard from the street!
Avatar n tn I just signed up to medhelp to give my input. I'm sorry you are dealing with this situation. My DD had at age 6 sudden onset of OCD Hers was not confession but was in the order of not touching things etc. it was quite disturbing to us. This sounds like OCD to me however the sudden onset would make me want to consider PANDAS / PANS in the differential. Please look into this. It could save you all years of heartache and prevent many possible wrong diagnosis.
Avatar f tn The symptoms in adults are different.
Avatar m tn I've been having truoble latley finishing anything at work or at home without stoping and starting somthing eles that i'll never finish. ADD, ADHD, Tourette's whatever it is I have atleast acknowleged it.
Avatar n tn There were times during my teenage years (female; now 23-year-old) when I was virtually never hungry. I didn't dare mention this to my parents, because my mother would freak out and whine about how I never appreciate her cooking, but after a growth-spurt, I just generally wasn't very hungry.
Avatar f tn I've since read up on SPS's and the symptoms are only vaguely similar and seeing as all three of us have the exact same symptoms I doubt it is a simple partial seizure. The symptoms are much to specific to simply be pushed into some vaguely similar preexisting disorder.
190559 tn?1280615967 There is a lot of similarities to HASHI and GRAVES symptoms but in the disease itself.....they are very different. The symptoms of anxiety , depression, anxiety...these are symptoms of BOTH Hyper and Hypo but with Hashis patients....there is a tendancy to try and let the thyroid durn ITSELF out. In the case of Graves...the Doctors tend to intervene if anti-thyroid meds dont work as hyperthyroidism and Graves can kill you with Atrial fibrillation. With Hashi's if medication overdose is given...
Avatar n tn He is in a school program, he's in a regular ed class with co-taught reading and pulled out for math. He's very bright and very social. We've had him evaluated for Autism and ADHD and neither was diagnosed or suggested. A psychiatrist (who charged us an arm and a leg) met him for two hours and said he by no means has autism, but he has some autistic tendencies, ie the impulsive behavior.
Avatar f tn Rapid cycling has very specific symptoms and it really needs to be controlled. I wish you the best. The support is here for you.
346355 tn?1219858547 Does anyone know of any alternative remedies that we can try while we are waiting to seek an endocrinologist? Has anyone else suffered these types of symptoms, and if so, do you have any advice on how to handle this situation. I am truly at my wits end, and I am a very patient man; it's just that this has become so difficult to deal with. I haven't found any support groups in my area (central NY) but my wife has finally become willing to come to see my counsellor with me.
Avatar f tn My doc says my ADHD symptoms are almost gone. Rocking definitely was a self-soothing way to get to sleep. The stress and madness would go away. The chatter in my brain would disappear. Only the rhythm filled my head. My mom said I was not neglected. She said she rocked my and held me often. I don't know what causes this and would love to know. Who of you were abused emotionally or physically, have ADD, ADHD or autism?
Avatar f tn ...among other symptoms: for the past year my periods have been ridiculously heavy, often bleeding through tampon, pad and clothing in under two hours. i also have a watery discharge during my period. it is clear and odorless. even if there is very little blood on my tampon, it soaks through and leaks through my pad and clothing as well. recently, i have been having less liquid blood and more clots, with a lot of the watery discharge.
Avatar m tn Personally I often wondered why my mother didn't do something about my bouncing when she saw me ruining my childhood and teenage years spending hours and weekends alone in my room just bouncing and listening to music. Could other people with this bouncing tell we if and what their parents did to make them stop or did they have a parent like mine that refused to admit there was a problem and looked the other way. I have been to mental health professionals but not about my bouncing.
