Common Questions and Answers about Adhd webmd


Avatar f tn A good place to get pretty non biased information is from the WebMD. A book by a UC Berkley honors student with severe ADHD about growing up with ADHD. might be helpful. The book is called - "ADHD and Me, What I learned from lighting fires at the dinner table," by Blake Taylor. Basically, "the Cal freshman tells hjow he made the ADHD work in his favor.
Avatar n tn What is it your grandson does that causes his Mom to ground and whip him, could you enlarge on his behavior for us to understand , you say he is sweet so perhaps his Mom is tough on him? what is it he steals and why, have you had a quiet chat wiith him to ask him,that could be a good idea , get his viewpoint and ask how he feels.
Avatar f tn Also congratulate yourself that he is communicating with you. Kids with ADHD and good intelligence can make it to about 7th grade before they start having problems. Its usually algebra or pre algebra that starts to do them in. Also since doing homework is usually extremely important, and is very difficult for a ADHD kid to do (takes them 3 hours to do what normal kids can do in one hour) - the middle school years are tough. Those years, of course, are nothing compared to high school.
Avatar m tn Although no one who truly has ADHD "loses" it as they grow older many learn to control it and cope. ADHD does not grow worse with age however. Other mental conditions, such as bipolarity, does. The fear you have may be anxirty based. Have you seen a therapist or any sort of psychological doctor? If you truly think you have issues I can't tell you haw good it is to finally know that there is a name for what you are experiencing and you are not to blame.

Avatar f tn t already done so) you need to become an expert in ADHD. One source that can get you started is this article from the WebMD. It seems fairly unbaised. It should be obvious to you that neither of you can continue to go on the way it is now. It is certainly time for a change listen to the professionals - hopefully, it will get only better. Good luck. If you have any other questions - ask!!
Avatar m tn Children who are or have been on ADHD drugs have an increased risk of committing suicide.Even the American Psychiatric Association admits that suicide is the major adverse reaction of withdrawal from these drugs. Clarke reports that “symptoms usually peak within two to four days after withdrawal of the drugs although depression and irritability may persist for months. Suicide risk can persist for years.
Avatar f tn Jag har med stor chans ADHD. Ingen diagnos satt, men psykologen sa det. Var på NPF.mottagningen och fick resultaten på testerna. Gick bra och gick därifrån glad. Manga har tjurat idag och sårade mig lite, men annars okej. Spydde på kvällen.

5856747 tn?1403348682 Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder. ADHD. Prevalence. Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder or ADHD is today largely accepted as a bona fide psychiatric or neurobehavioral disorder affecting some 5-7% of children and adolescents. The prevalence will depend on the diagnostic criteria used. It was once thought to be three times commoner in boys than in girls though not all studies support that figure. About 50% of ADHD children will carry the condition into adulthood.

788117 tn?1304011947 Have you considered having weekly total calories eaten and expended like WebMD? They also allow for tracking the calories expended doing specific daily activities like sleeping, desk work, shopping, etc. That way you can account for all the calories you burn in one day (not just those related to exercise) and compare them to all the calories you consume. I like their diet tracker very much but I like that Med Help has trackers for my migraines, my mood, etc.

Avatar m tn Good Morning, For the past six months or so I have noticed that at time, my ******* (not familiar with the correct term) itches and sometimes burns. I've briefly browsed forums and WebMd for information before and generally assumed it to be a hemorrhoid, but most topics about them say that they go away on their own, which I do not believe mine has done - assuming that is what it is.
Avatar f tn Not sure why you posted on the ADHD forum, but .... typically, it takes one to two weeks for the infection to resolve itself (webmd). If you are on multiple doses of zithromycin (with no more bad symptoms), I would expect things to be getting better soon. If that was a single dose of zithromycin, then yes, there is a very good chance it did not get into your system. I am guessing you took it on an empty stomach?
192055 tn?1263555537 So one of the first things you want to do is to become more aware of what ADHD is and what it does. This site should help. It is from WebMD and seems fairly unbiased -- I think the next thing is that you need some kind of a goal or focus. Your life now is very different then when you were in the highly regimented school system. You probably need to set something like that up for yourself.
Avatar m tn A few days ago, I randomly felt a small lump on the outer surface of my scrotum. I looked on webmd for more info, but of course all webmd came up with was that it was testicular cancer... So now I'm a little worried. Should I go see a doctor and get this checked out?
Avatar n tn What makes Medhelp better than Webmd? Which would contain better answers to my other questions?
Avatar n tn I have been thinking about asking my Psychiatrist if I could get tested for ADHD. I've tried to bring up the topic a couple of times, but for some reason, I just never end up doing it. I guess I feel uncomfortable, because the few times I have mentioned it, he explains how it is "overdiagnosed." He then goes on to describe hyperactive children, but from what I read, ADHD isn't limited to strictly hyperactivity. I'm 21 and in college.
Avatar n tn A rheumatoid factor being elevated (which according the guiding reference range listed on Webmd, your mom's does not seem to be) can mean different things. The reference range listed on Webmd is less than 60 U/mL, and your mom's number would therefore seem to be falling within normal range.
Avatar n tn I disagree a bit here. Intelligence does matter simply because it allows a kid with ADHD to skate by in school. Kids who should be getting A's, get B's and C's, and everybody says thats cool. Or if they have really good intelligence, they can go through most of middle school (usually Algebra does them in), until it becomes too much. The problem is by now, psychological damage has been done.

9584608 tn?1413678892 Has anyone ever had this or has it now? I was looking at WebMD and with my symptoms I've been having, it kind sounds like that may be what I have. My symptoms are frequent heartburn, feeling a pressure on my chest that makes it hard to breathe, and an acidy taste in my mouth.
Avatar f tn First and foremost, your daughter is not "bad". She has a medical problem. It can be made better with (possibly) medication and behavioral modification techniques. Both of these will require you to get an education in the field of ADHD and child behavior. This is not an easy thing to do, nor is your daughter's condition an easy thing to deal with. The first thing you need to do is get an assessment of your daughter's condition. Your public school can do this.
Avatar n tn I talked to a counselor about ADHD today and this particular counselor believes that there's a good chance of me having ADHD.
