Avatar f tn I have heard of ADHD symptoms, I heard that it is much more easier to have fights if you have ADHD also ADHD kids act mostly, hyper, either violent(Not all), Overreacting over mainly little things. Sometimes they wonder in there own world. Having Aspergers can be different in many ways, Aspergers is when your child is having emotional problems maybe even getting embarrassed, shy, difficult education maybe even speech problems.
Avatar f tn The scores on his 2nd grade achievement test places his intellectual ability at mid year 3rd grade. DO my son have symptoms of ADD-ADHD. Should I retain my son in the second grade to improve on the weakness stated by his teacher.

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 m tn I did some scrrening test online for adult ADHD and they returned very likely.I will talk to my psychiatrist about this thursday.When i was younger many teachers would write on my test inatentive,i was doing everything to fast at math and always did mistakes on simple calculations.I always had trouble wrting essays,my mind would not work and cause distress,and also when had to read a book.
1211960 tn?1272978102 I took a self test to deterime which kind of ADHD I had ( there are 6 different kinds.) The test results showed that I had Ring Of Fire ADHD. I was researching this specific type of ADHD and this is what I found: Type 6 -- The Ring of Fire. Cross between ADHD and bipolar disorder. Characterized by moodiness, aggressiveness, and anger. Anticonvulsants or newer antipsychotic medications tend to work better than stimulants. Now I am starting to doubt my diagnosis of bipolar.
Avatar m tn Hey Chris, you are certainly describing some of the symptoms of AD/HD - probably more ADD. One sure symptom for me was to examine a kids test and look for stupid mistakes. Kid would do really well, and then start to self destruct on simple questions later in the test. They just couldn't focus - and they wanted to. In the book, "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley (you might want to buy it), she basically says on p.
Avatar m tn When I was 16 I was diagnosed with add and prescribed adderall. I was diagnosed by taking some long and expensive test. When I took adderall it made my anxiety worse and I felt like I had smoked crack. I tried taking it several times with the same outcome each time. I barely squeezed through high school and have continued to live with it ever since. I am now trying to get a college degree and I am having extreme difficulties.
707438 tn?1240963240 It's much more logical to assume that we have different levels of this disorder and some of us are able, for what ever reasons, to learn to control some of the symptoms. I do see the creative side of ADHD - it's very evident in my own family but I do want to say that there is an alarming number of people in the prison population who test positive for it - as high as 30%. I have also experienced this side firsthand. Best of luck.
Avatar n tn I have only recently learned of the ODD. My daughter has been diagnosed with "mild" ADHD. Her pychologist also told us that she is extremely bright. She is doing well academically in kindergarten; her teacher said she is above average in most areas of learning. Our problem is her behavior. She not only falls into four symptoms of ODD, but exhibits all six of the criteria.
Avatar f tn have a hyperactive 5 and a half yr. old boy. Hyper since birth.Changing diapers was difficult. I am used to this and it has gotten a bit easier to manage since then. Alot of his behavior seems like ADHD,the type that is hyper but "takes everything in". He never liked loud music,covers his ears. And also complained once of lights being too bright at Gymnastics class (which he DID NOT LIKE). He will interact with other children and isn't shy once he gets comfortable.
Avatar f tn I have also had many, many kids with ADHD. I have had kids who I gave two to three days to finish a 25 question test. I have had a least two who died shortly after highschool. In short, I have seen both sides. All I want people to do is to recognize that the situation does exist. That there is more than one way to handle it. That it can be horrible for a child or an adult if they have ADHD and can't cope.
Avatar m tn I have been diagnosed with both acid reflux, and inflamatory colitis, anxiety, and depression, as well as ADHD. Lately I have been experiencing (roughly once a month for 1-2 days) Nausea with flu like symptoms. I have trouble with my extremities (Hands and feet) being cold on a regular basis and they have been refered to as a "dead Mans hands" on more than one occasion. I always feel exhuasted, no matter how much rest I get.
Avatar n tn Also he is adopted so I have no family history persae. My son shows all the signs of ADHD(and symptoms)and he is 8 years old. I took him to a Psy.D who said he is not ADHD based on his tests. His I.Q. is 147 and he is in the top 99% in all areas tested. Still he presents as ADHD to me. Then the other day I read an article in a magazine at the doctors office about kids being misdiagnosed with ADHD when in fact they have a neurological disorder called something like Hypersensitivity.
Avatar n tn He's now undergoing developmental changes related to adolescence, and it could be that you are witnessing the symptoms of an emerging mood disorder (alongside his ADHD). Ask the clinician about this possibility. The chances of such an occurrence increase if there is a family history of mood disorder.
Avatar n tn I have been treated for ADHD and voluntarily stopped prescription medication almost two years ago. I actually had one doctor give me a computer test and concluded that I was very hyperactive. Recently I have been having trouble with my eyes, especially when I try to type, concentrate on my computer/BlackBerry, add numbers on my ten-key, and even talk to co-workers and clients.
Avatar f tn Lower dose, another med, non time released. Are my symptoms more ADD or ADHD or something else. Is there a test I can take to tell me what it is?
Avatar n tn My child has been diagnosed with ADHD and has also seen a physcologist which they say he has a borderline learning disability. I know as a parent that something else is going on with my son and I cannot seem to get answers from Doctors who have the eliment of caring about what is going on with my son. He still has problems with loud noises and cannot seem to communicate properly he just makes some weird scraching noise.
2110632 tn?1334189982 And, many times caused by the ADHD. Your symptoms at home are certainly consistent with ADHD or ADD. But, you should also had problems at school. But, in school, how far did you get and what was your GPA. I have seen many adult posts where they were intelligent enough to get through high school, but had a lot more problems in college.
Avatar f tn People think I'm imagining it because they say, why did you get the symptoms all of a sudden in college. No, I've had the symptoms my entire life. But in the past, things are easy for me in classes so I got A's and honors and I never actually, truly studied. They started becoming a problem when I went to college and took incredibly intensive courses.
Avatar f tn And yes, there are several things that can cause ADHD symptoms that are not ADHD - and they should be checked out! But your symptoms are also classic ADHD as well as your self medication reactions. To get a feeling for what adult ADHD is like check out the link and the advice posted here. http://www.medhelp.org/posts/ADD---ADHD/Being-judged-for-having-ADHD/show/1327105 You ask about resources for people like you. My first question would be - what kind of a doctor is your doctor?
Avatar f tn Most people with anxiety have ADHD symptoms but, in fact, do not have ADHD (this is why so often one will read that Ritalin or similar medication is not working). I also believe that mild/moderate anxiety can be helped with herbal and/or natural remedies. So, why not try this route as a first option. However, from reading your first post, I get the impression that you are suffering from more than just "mild" anxiety issues.
Avatar m tn im a 20 year old man. i have about 85 percent of the symptoms of adhd but i havent been diagnosed. i was wondering if adhd or add can cause me to feel like i dont wanna work. i mean. i hate to work more than most people. once i get going its okay. but sometimes i get very frustrated just thinking that i have to spend 40 hours out of the week working. i find myself wanting to do other things in the middle of my work. is this adhd or could it be part of a personality disorder?
Avatar f tn I am in the process of being evaluated for ADHD. I am 68. Are there special considerations for senior citizens with this diagnosis. I also take meds for depression. Starting back on effexor xr from welbutrin.
Avatar f tn My 15 yr old son was recently diagnosed with ADHD using 3 surveys. I really wanted him to be tested using WISC since he is also gifted (140 OLsaT 3 years ago). It seems like our current psychiatrist allows us to decide our own course with medication to see what would work best. He is currently on 25 mg Vyvance and the last month he has said it made a world of difference with his attention in school.
