Avatar f tn I agree with Jenkaye 100% with her suggestions for cutting back on video games. I wonder however if gators32 was wondering how someone with ADHD could concentrate on a video game. And the answer is that the stimulation is great enough that they will get locked into the game and actually can have a hard time quitting. So, yes, a child with ADHD can concentrate enough to play video games.

Avatar n tn Excuse me but the whole concept of this seems pattently ridiculous. My youngest has ADHD with a big H and he carries Lyme's but he had the ADHD WAY before he contracted the other. I will certainly check out the video but I start out as a disbeliever.
Avatar m tn I had ADHD as a child and now I have some of my symptoms in my adult years.
Avatar n tn My 12 year old son in 6th grade has been getting in touble for the last month because he continues to forget homework, doesn't turn it in, doesn't remember to bring books home and is talking in class. We have met with his teachers and have been told that he loses focus in class as well. We have had this trouble with him over the last several years but though he was doing better.
Avatar f tn My 10 year old daughter is finally set up for an 24 hour video EEG. So I will finally get to see what is going on with her. I wrote in previously about her muscle twitching all over. I am excited to get the results, but nervous because I don't want it to be something real serious. I just want to see what is causing her twitching or tics all over so we can put her on the medicine she needs to be on.
Avatar n tn HI, my son Chris is 18 with Adhd,P.D.D. Nos is makes noicesall the time & comes up and touches me all the time he also claps his hands. He usually does this alot when he is playing those video games.Is is Adhd meds working? I dont think so. He takes 10mg in morning & 10mg at night!
Avatar n tn Talk to his pediatrician. They can often give you advice on what would cause behavioral problems and if necessary, direct you to have him evaluated. They can often tell you by an exam if he has add/adhd. He may be an active little boy who needs someplace to vent his energy as well but the comments about killing and eating people is a little worrisome. Does he play video games at home or at a friends house that may be a little too graphic?
Avatar f tn Well, obviously part of this depends on how long this has been going on. It might be a good idea to get more information on ADHD to see if any of the symptoms sound familiar. I've got tons of resources. While many are very detailed (your parents might be interested in those), this is pretty direct - check it out - http://www.medhelp.org/posts/ADD---ADHD/What-signs-should-I-look-for/show/773154 If there is anymore questions you have, please feel free to post. Best wishes!
5690865 tn?1372451618 Hyper focus means you can focus for one thing for a very long time, in spite of the ADD/ADHD. My son can do this with video games. However, getting him to focus on homework or even eating his dinner is a struggle. I hope this helps. Good luck!
11487567 tn?1418754128 Second, there is a strong possibility that her anxieties are being caused by or strengthened by her ADHD which I assume she has? If so, treating only the anxiety part could make her symptoms actually worse. And, essentially, the treatments are just masking the symptoms and not treating the cause. This is a very good link on ADHD and anxiety. http://www.add.org/page/ADHDandAnxiety In terms of combining stim meds and anxiety meds, this link to a short video by Dr.

Avatar f tn i have a 5 year old son (only child) who was diagnosed with adhd and placed on adderal 5 mg. it has not worked so we have taken him off. he has also been diagnosed with ocd for constantly peeling the skin off his thumbs/fingers and now starting on his toes. the dr wants to place him on zoloft to treat the ocd. will this help with the adhd in school?? He is very smart and ahead of his class but cannot wait his turn and blurts, etc. Very active and constantly moving.
Avatar f tn Our 9 year old has a lot of ADD/ADHD characteristics, but has not been formally diagnosed, nor treated with medication. My issue is that he has always been a non sleeper. Even as a baby, he slept less than what would be considered normal. He will not sleep with the light off because he claims he's scared of the dark and he often gets up in the middle of the nite to play video games, computer or even just to read books.
Avatar f tn Actually what he is doing is not that unusual for an adhd kid. Kids with adhd can hyperfocus (especially if playing video games). Once they are in this stated...things like going to the bathroom just don't register till its too late. And, of course, being impulsive is highly typical of adhd kids. They don't think before doing stuff...as many emergency room doctors can tell you. What can you do about this? Medication will help the impulsiveness.
Avatar n tn I had him tested for ADD, ADHD, and one person said he has inatentive adhd, but them another says there is nothing wrong with him. he gets mad easily, but then is over just as quick. Now he is in the habit of saying inappropriate things to girls. He sat on a little girls lap the other day. We had a huge meeting at the school. We had him talk to a police officer. I have banned him from all t.v. So, today, he get in school suspensioin for pushing a girl.

709940 tn?1231900307 My son went through a phase of testing with a clinical child psychologist. She said that her "instincts" say that he does not have a PDD, but possibly ADHD, even though he displays all signs of having a PDD. She said that because he did not display these behaviors in her office, she can't say. What she did say was that he has Language Processing Disorder, Sensory Integration Dysfuncion and Speech delays.
Avatar m tn He has been on resperidone for 11/2 week showing only ADHD and ODD symptoms. He is driving us crazy but not showing any signs of anger or aggression. We then introduced ADHD medication, guanfacine, evening only. Second day he started exhibiting more aggressive, angry behavior. I plan to call the Doctor on Monday, but wanted to know if anyone else had similar situation?
Avatar n tn Im not a big believer in 'diagnosing' attention problems either,, the only suggestion I coudl offer you would be to consider getting a video game player like the leap pad learning programs... if you can teach him to focus via video games it will help him learn patients and focus..
Avatar n tn But, you do need to know if he does have ADHD - although his symptoms would certainly suggest it. And having two siblings with it would certainly enhance the odds of him having it. Perhaps what ever doctor is helping you with them could also give guidance. Anyway, here is a good general overall look at adhd. http://www.medicinenet.com/parenting_a_child_with_adhd/article.htm You might want to get the book, "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley.
Avatar n tn s wrong with me). Finding out that I have ADHD and what ADHD means brought peace and answered everything that was going wrong with me... Hope it was helpful !

Avatar m tn My 6 year old was recently diagnosed with ADHD combined type and complex motor tics. I am reaching out to all of you because I feel like he could be misdiagnosed. He's having a difficult time in school with making noises, facial grimicing and his new obessions- arm pit farting and noises that sound like a gulp and another one that makes a sound like bowwww. He's been having a lot of trouble with these issues. As a baby he had benign mycolnic seizures quite frequently.
