Common Questions and Answers about Adhd symptoms wikipedia


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 n tn ADHD tends to run in families and most adults don't realize they have it until they have a child that is diagnosed with it. About 60% of children with ADHD continue to have symptoms after the age of 18....There is a lot of debate about the disorder being possibly underdiagnosed in adults, especially in women. The numbers are around 4-6% of adults are thought to have ADHD and only 1-3% are diagnosed...
574118 tn?1305138884 I posted a question in the ADHD forum asking whether an ADHD can become manic, so perhaps my previous OCD was transformed into ADHD and not BP. Seemingly ADHD and BP are interwinned. Because if ADHD CAN turn manic so why not many diagnosed BP are not so and are rather ADHD. I remember once my pdoc said psychic illness come in a group of diseases. Apparently nobody knows. I'm really fed up. Here in the middle of nowhere where i live i even doubt pdocs heard of the term ADHD.
1198972 tn?1265236342 I was just wondering what are the symptoms?..Do they have to be a certain age to test them?
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.
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 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 f tn My four year old grandchild/fosterchild has been to the doctor and now take meds for ADHD. Frist was riddelen that did not work at all. New medication is Risperidone. No change has been noticed. This child before meds was pooping and peeing on her bedroom floor and even after meds. Im at my end and dont understand this kind of behavior.
Avatar m tn Its advantage over stimulants for the treatment of ADHD is that it has less abuse potential than stimulants,[2][3] is not scheduled as a controlled substance and has proven in clinical trials to offer 24-hour coverage of symptoms associated with ADHD in adults and children.[4] Full therapeutic effects of atomoxetine may take at least a week to be felt. Atomoxetine should be taken for 6–8 weeks before deciding whether it is effective or not.
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. Look familiar?
704262 tn?1247678238 I recall a canadian medical booklet sent to me by a lady here stating that OCD, PD and ADHD are gateways to BP. My pdoc told me OCD is a step which can morph into BP like a bus stop with the latter its terminus. Some here object to this view. Upon much reflexions, I came to identify my OCD as psychosis and not OCD, i.e.
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.
11099322 tn?1415290528 It would be nice if someone can offer some advice as to what physical ailment, obscure or otherwise, that can be causing these mental illnesses b them just being symptoms of another disorder. What drugs would you recommend. I am on Adderall 60 mgs per day, Zoloft 200 mgs per day, Klonopin 4 mgs per day, Depakote 500 mgs per day, wellbutrin 300 mgs per day, and Zyprexa, 25 mgs per day. I want to get rid of the ADHD for good along with the chronic fatigue.
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.
Avatar f tn hi there, i have a 4 year old daughter who has a simisn line on her right hand and she has extreme behavior problems, violent tantrums, will not accept any disapline a nursery or at home, she is very intelligent for her age but the nursery want to keep her back because of her behaviour and lack of concentration, she is adgitated all the time and very very stubborn, she has always been difficult but the older she gets the worse it is, i have done a online test for ADHD and she is on that spectrum
Avatar n tn 60 minutes prior my blood pressure was 119/68 and heart rate of 54 bpm. I take dexamphetamine IR for my ADHD so I take vital signs such as BP and heart rate prior to and after taking my dose. At this point I realized I also had a fever and I developed moderate chest pain with tightness. I immediately took my BP and pulse which showed my pulse at 196 and BP of 189/112. I almost collapsed when I saw these readings and somehow managed to call an ambulance.
Avatar m tn Once their problem ADHD was finally identified, they could get the information (and sometimes, but not always, the meds) to help them deal with it. Even if you don't have ADHD (although the symptoms sure lean that way), it means that a whole different approach could be taken. Dawie is correct. Do not go to your GP for this. Find a psychiatrist that specializes in ADHD. Finally, take some time to go through some of the posts on this web site.
Avatar m tn I would say no honestly.. I looked up on Wikipedia what the official symptoms are and they are as follows: Unstable interpersonal relationships, affective distress, marked impulsivity, and unstable self-image are the primary features of BPD. Individuals with BPD tend to experience frequent, strong and long-lasting states of aversive tension, often triggered by perceived rejection, being alone or perceived failure.
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.
322138 tn?1306246734 I am 24 right now and after I came across the possiblity that I might have it, I read about it as much as I can on Wikipedia and everywhere on the Internet and I seem to have most of the symptoms associated with it.
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 m tn * Stereotypy is apparently purposeless movement, such as hand flapping, making sounds, head rolling, or body rocking. * Compulsive behavior is intended and appears to follow rules, such as arranging objects in a certain way. * Sameness is resistance to change; for example, insisting that the furniture not be moved or refusing to be interrupted.
Avatar f tn ADHD, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive personality disorder; recurrent major depressive disorder, schizo-affective disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, narcissistic personality disorder, borderline personality disorder, antisocial personality disorder, avoidance disorder. I have had all of these disorders except schizophrenia at one time or another in the last seven decades. Some of these disorders were officially diagnosed by a psychiatrist and some were not. 1.12.
Avatar m tn They gave me a pill to help calm me down, but it hardly worked, if anything did not work at all, they never do, and i believe it's because i am ADHD, and i am not taking medication for it, have not been for a few years. All of the tests appeared to come back normal, they had been monitoring my heart, and my blood pressure was always under 140.
1219510 tn?1266713553 her breathing. lol. Then she's back at it. Sigh. And it's hard to look at ADHD/ADD or any other symptoms because at age 2, well, it's not that accurate, is it? Just happy to see she's not alone. But still frustrated! Doctors shrug it off. But it'll be interesting to see if anything "medical" comes out of the results of people on this thread. Perhaps we should form a group of some sort!
Avatar f tn It also depends on if the child is misbehaving or has something like ADHD which means they can't really control a lot of what is going on. Anyway, didn't mean to come down so hard. But to punish a kindergarten child for school actions is making the situation so much worse!
Avatar f tn Thanks for the comments. I am hoping that the smell of smoke is just a coincidence & NOT related to the memory issues. My doc treated it as a sinus infection (which I found out can cause it, although I've never had a sinus infection in all my 36yrs). ;) And the fact that I "wonder" if I could have schizophrenia comforts me a little in what I've heard/read about the disorder... that most people who HAVE it, aren't AWARE that they have it.
1390055 tn?1365618655 It was clear to my physicians that ADHD was still a problem. So they decided to try an ADHD/Anti-depressant combo, and from what I'm told, there's a possibility I fried my brain doing this. But I was only doing what I thought was best for me, but it's only the doctors that thought what was best for me in all honestly... At this point, I was now 17, the year was 2004, and my ADHD med included with the Zoloft initially was Seroquel.
Avatar m tn Results of naturalistic studies additionally show pervasive, often chronic symptoms, multiple episode recurrences, very infrequent euthymic periods when measured over years and marked functional disability in many patients.(Euthymic means a normal, non-depressed, reasonably positive mood distinguished from euphoria) Thus, despite the explosion of options over the last quarter century when lithium dominated treatment, treatment resistance remains a central problem in BPD.
574118 tn?1305138884 If this proved right then i will become very astonished, because i know some drs ask for the test for ADHD say, but i can't imagine it shows psychiatric symptoms. will see many thanks >>Hypothyroidism causes so many mental problems do you mean showing similr symptoms, or really causing mental problems, because how come the thyroid affects another organ the brain?
