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.
888444 tn?1241105995 Oops, wiki doesn't articulate the symptoms very well there. "One of the most common symptoms... is a headache. The headache generally begins in the neck or base of the skull and may radiate through the back of the head." (your headache sounds like one of these kinds) "Patients may also report tingling, burning, numbness, or pins and needles. Balance can be affected" (your shooting pain perhaps) http://www.answers.com/topic/arnold-chiari-malformation# Cognatively...
Avatar n tn I have also read a book on ADHD and they both have 15-16 out of 20 of the symptoms along with the sensory problems too.They have no respect for theyre own things as well as others. Heres a few things that I marked in the book.
220090 tn?1379170787 You are lucky that it was not long-lasting while you were working. Many would ignore the symptoms but you were smart and sought help. Thanks for sharing.
Avatar n tn sometimes Tenex is also used in conjunction with stimulants to help control ADHD symptoms....first I have heard of inderal (brand name for propranolol) being used but makes sense...Always to remember to ask your doctor any questions about your meds and health care...the only stupid questions are the ones not asked....Also beta blockers are also given to help control migraines to regulate fluxs in BP...not because too high but slight changes can trigger migraines...
1511164 tn?1301584382 So I decided to post this same question on Yahoo Answers and found out that it is most like OCD, and I do have OCD http://*****************/question/index?qid=20110213042818AAeq89e Here what I got from wiki under Tourette Syndrome: Under Characteristic I found: "Among patients whose symptoms are severe enough to warrant referral to clinics, obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are often associated with Tourette's.
Avatar f tn Hello, Your child’s symptoms are suggestive of ADHD(attention deficit hyperactivity disorder).

Avatar m tn This could be symptoms of Tourette syndrome. Check out the link below: http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar f tn my son is autistic and adhd. He is also very anxious. He has had brain seizures when he was very young that seem to have subsided. He is 11 now and since the age of five has complained when caught killing an animal or hurting other children that, "venom made me do it". He has dropped the "venom" but still sees something and it has a man's voice that tells him to do bad things. Is he possibly pre-schizophrenic also?
1059647 tn?1255039454 Hey Mightymouse, The only person with a "deficient" is the psyc who did the testing, took his money and ran. You should have gotten a much better explanation than that. First check out this post. Look for the Sept 22 post at 9:39 and compare her sons test results to yours. http://www.medhelp.org/posts/Child-Behavior/GRADE-3-SCHOOL-BUT-MOM-THINKS-SHE-SHOULD-REPEAT-GRADE-2/show/1053254?post_id=post_4901179 Look familiar?
Avatar n tn My question is then, is there any way these head jerks could be strong enough to damage my brain? I don't hit my head or anything, but the symptoms worry me. I have not heard of anyone with Tourettes causing themselves brain damage, even people with much worse cases than mine, but I would like to be sure. If I have caused myself brain damage, is there anyway to reverse the effects, or is brain damage always permanent?
Avatar n tn There is a massive tendency to diagnose any child who is hyperactive or moody as ADHD - the reality is most kids at 3 are those things. The symptoms you have just given are not neccesarrily illness based - you ssid you adopted him. What is his history? Is he the oldest or youngest or middle? If he is suffering anxiety issues and seperation (and he is not able to articulate at this age) that could easily account for the moods and the sleep problems.
362203 tn?1248813910 I've always found my own docs to be very open and non-stereotyping when I see them about my ADHD. It seems obvious that the symptoms you are experiencing are bothersome to you. I can't tell you whether or not what you are experiencing IS or IS NOT add/adhd, but I can say that if it is, a working relationship with your doctor is crucial. I hope you do take the next step and hope to hear from you with good news!
Avatar f tn I dont believe the alarming frequency of this diagnosis and the seemingly minor 'symptoms' that are getting some children labelled and drugged.
1725558 tn?1309741096 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bipolar_disorder#In_children I have read a few reports made by doctors about how diagnosing bipolar in children, as being a big mistake and saying they are being miss-diagnosed and should be diagnosed with things such as server ADHD or ODD. ( not to say that some children do have actually bipolar).
Avatar n tn it feel like i have to move my feet or my arms every five seconds. I keep hearing these thinks about add and adhd. well i dont know if i have it or if its just all in my head becuase its my last year of high school and everyone says 12 grade is the most stress full year. But if do have add or adhd, i wont know how to tell my dad. I told him that its hard for me to pay attention in class and all he said was "if you cant pay attention then you wont graduate". (some help he is.
Avatar f tn The diagnosis is made based on observation of the individual's symptoms and family history, and after ruling out secondary causes of tic disorders. There is no requirement that other comorbid conditions (such as ADHD or OCD) be present, but if a physician believes that there may be another condition present that could explain tics, tests may be ordered as necessary to rule out that condition.
Avatar n tn I am now seeing another neurologist here in the USA to get a second opinion, as the symptoms continue. They tell me twitches usually are one of the last symptoms, so they should have already shown on ALS unless you have bulbar start, but as I said I have no problems talking/swallowing. I am terrified I might have ALS, despite the fact that the neurosurgeon (who also has a neurology qualification) dismissed the idea.
Avatar m tn I've compiled a fairly exhaustive list of my symptoms and related information (sorry it's long!): General symptoms: - acid reflux (fairly mild) - bloating - occasional "skipped beat" - Premature Ventricular Complexes?
Avatar n tn Hi, My fiance has been experiencing some weird symptoms and I hope you can help me put some ideas together what they may be from. My fiance is 24 years old he a healthy weight, doesn't smoke, doesn't excessively drink and does not use drugs. What concerns me is that for the past 3 months he has been experiencing tingling and numbness sensations in his hands and feet mostly fingers and toes, but about 3 weeks ago it started to affect his entire hands and feet.

Avatar m tn The medication was very helpful in terms of helping my ADHD symptoms, but it made me want to smoke sooooo much more. I have read about this on the internet and others have noted similar experiences when taking stimulant medication. The Ritalin also caused me really bad anxiety in the evenings and was an overall bad experience so I am now suffering without meds and I am leary of trying other meds now.
2148771 tn?1415018009 I started seeing a therapist right before all of this Because my sons have adhd (TMI) not because I am crazy. Anyways, The attacks come and go therapist says it's not panic disorder or anxiety and go see a doctor. So I go and tell Doctor what happens and not everytime does it happen the same time. Doctor said You don't have insurance so there are only a few things I can do for you and so how much money are you able to spend. YES this was really said. Wished I had a tape recorder for that.
Avatar m tn part of ADHD, I don't really suffer many symptoms. I mean, my parents have always asked my to stop fidgeting in places like Church but I guess that is only because I am bored. I often do shake my legs without realizing but I doubt that is anything abnormal and more of a habit. Studying for exams, and completing assignments is close to impossible without staying up late at night as I literally will do anything but complete the task - even if it is something that I want to do.

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).
Avatar n tn When I was a child, I was tested over and beyond my intelligence range in comparison to the children my same age bracket, in turn, had a physiological chemical off -balance. I was diagnosed with OCD, ADHD, ABC, DEF, you name it!!! I had it. My mother wasn't for putting me on medications; she was afraid of the damage it would place on my liver. I was extremely young when I was diagnosed by the way.
Avatar f tn In fact one can obscure the other in a sleep study so if your symptoms continue after treating a diagnosed problem, go back for follow-up. Let us know how your sleep study turns out.
Avatar n tn (There is no family medical information, however we did adopt his older brother who shares the same biological mother, he has no problems but ADHD). About 3 years ago my son was diagnosed with migraine headaches, he takes medication daily for this and he also takes meds for ADHD. My son’s school also wishes to test him for Aspurgurs (sp) a form of Autism. Last week I took my son to the ER due to a migraine and severe vomiting.
