Avatar n tn Kick boxing may not last long enough at a higher heart rate to help for as long a period of time. Yoga is great for the anxiety that can come with ADHD. Any reason why you don't want to try a stimulant medication? It might not have been a good combination when you were taking your asthma meds, but would not be a problem now. Here is a link that provides alternative sources to deal with ADHD. It might be kind of helpful, but there is not much out there that has been proven.

I do have to say that I think my Yoga Practice, 20 years now plus resuming it on a daily basis again has made a huge difference in my life. Benefits of Yoga Physical 1.Increases body awareness. 2.Stretches and lengthens the muscles. 3.Stretches the soft tissues of the body. (Tendons, ligaments, and the fascia sheath that surrounds the muscles.) 4.
Avatar f tn I have been treated for ADHD with Vyvanse for almost two years now and have recently been diagnosed with a mood disorder. My doctor gave me a script for a mood stabilizer, but I want to do something more than just take pills. I need to actively do something more to help get my life on track. I can't just leave pills to be my sanity anchor. Any suggestions? Ps. I am really interested in meditation/chakra/yoga/reiki/etc.
Avatar n tn Hi! Yes, there are various treatments available for anorexia. First step is to log in whatever you eat along with timing. This can give you an idea about your total calorie intake. If you are unable to do so, you could always ask your family or friend to do it for you. Once anorexia is diagnosed, the treatment involves various types of behavior therapies, nutritional guidance, medications to control hunger, food satiety, and exercise and yoga.
3197665 tn?1345209850 My 7 yr old has ADHD, PTSD, and adjustment disorder there may be another dianois but im waiting on paperwork from the hospital to know that. He is only meds. My question is a normal with a child with this many dianois to not follow direction or listen as much as he does? I know that this happens with all children but he gets in angery outburst with this to where i had to put him in hospital for his and everyone else safty.
Avatar m tn that was 1 year ago and I now have all of the classic adult ADHD symptoms and it's really bad. I'm pretty sure that I had this ADHD thing all along and that the ritalin was controlling the ADHD symptoms as well as the former sleep problem. Is this possible? I tried all of the new adult ADHD meds (like modafinil) and they didn't help at all, but the ritalin did 100%. I'm afraid to go to a doctor ith this mess of a story; it seems like I'm nuts.
Avatar n tn I I'm 4 weeks pregnant and I have severe ADHD and I'm currently in school. I can't make it through my classes without having an anxiety attack unless I have my medication. Is it safe to continue to take?
Avatar m tn It does have a lot to do with a child who seems to have the symptoms, but does not have ADHD - just a profound lack of structure. One reason that for ADHD to be diagnosed, it has to be present in more then just the home setting. Hope this helps answer your question. If your parents happen to need some links to sites that have good suggestions on ways to help your little bro - you know where to find me. Best wishes.
Avatar f tn I'm 25 and only just found out i have ADHD...i also have anxiety and went through depression and some other bad things...But i can tell you it WILL get better...i promise you that Have you talked to your parents about how you are feeling? That would be a very good idea. I don't have bipolar but i have a very close friend who does so i know how it can effect people but there is help for you...
Avatar f tn I’m tired of being tired. I sick of being scared. When I take an ADHD stimulant medication, the anxiety is reduced, for an hour, maybe two. Is the anxiety really gone? I’m still grinding my tongue on my bottom teeth. I’m probably just focused on non useful tasks. The tasks include: obsessive internet surfing, looking for home businesses (which I honestly believe will work, and may, but with an unusually high confidence.
Avatar f tn i havent been diagnosed but do have anxiouty disorder and adhd. Im so anxious and restless and when i lie down to sleep my brain go's into overdrive. I take ambian for it but it gives me aprox 4 hrs of peaceful rest. what meds if any do you recommend. i will probably wait till i deliver my child.
Avatar f tn In addition, I would suggest that you take as much time for yourself and simplify your life as much as possible. Get plenty of exercise and try yoga and meditation. Both Yoga and TM (meditation have been shown to reduce symptoms in recent studies. I would also get a coach or someone else to help keep you on track as much as possible. And try to enjoy the pregnancy and get will need it!!!
Avatar n tn I just went to a yoga class and now afterwards it hurts even more. I am only taking vitiamins (multi vitamin for women, omega three, vitamin D, just started vitamin C and B Complex (was taking B12), and an anti-acid and lodine for joint pain. I tried Melatonin last night (3 mg - it was too much!) to see if it work for getting to sleep earlier as I have ADHD-PI and am a complete night owl. It knocked me out, I don't need that much. BTW, I am extremely sensitive to medications.
Avatar f tn It may also help to mention I've been diagnosed with ADHD and have been taking 40mg of adderall ever since elementary school. I don't think my medication is the problem seeming as to how I've had no problems until now. Please help!!

Avatar n tn My five year old son was diagnosed with ADHD back in December. He just started Kindergarden and the teachers in his Charter School do not like to deal with children with ADHD so they want them medicated. So his peditirican put him on 10mg of Adderall. I was so reluctant but I want him to pass Kindergarden. He does have the side effects, i.e. stomach aches (which seemed to pass now) restlessness, very picky eater, very emotional and sad feelings that no one likes him.
Avatar f tn i feel like i have add or adhd... but no one will listen... i feel like im going insane... how can i know? how can i feel better about school and learning?
Avatar n tn I would ask, though, if your rehab included any thought control processes, such as meditation and breathing exercises and doing complicated mental games. Meditation might also even out your blood flow, as does exercise and yoga, which can help control migraines.
Avatar m tn Hello, you sound like a person whose life is going well in many ways, though I can certainly see why the symptoms you mention would be an annoyance. One of the best cues to determining if an adult has ADHD is to determine if he experiences underachievement (missing deadlines, getting fired from jobs, making foolish mistakes with big consequences etc).
Avatar f tn I am also on Vyvanse for ADHD and that decreases my appetite. However, I have been on Yaz for a few months, and I swear it reverses all the positive effects of Vyvanse (more energy/decreased appetite) because I am so tired and hungry all the time. In the past I have tried Lo-Estrin, Nuva-Ring,& Ortho Tri Cyclen. Does anyone have any recommendations for the perfect pill--i.e.
Avatar f tn I try to deal with my anxiety in other ways as much as possible, but when that doesn't work or I have a full blown attack I definetly take them. Well to my ADHD question. I am 22 and just started school again and I just cannot consentrate. I used to be a really good student in high school. I was a procrastinator, but always got my work done, but since high school I have had some trauma in my life and now I am starting school again and cannot even pay attention.
Avatar n tn Hi my son is 8 years old and was diagnosed about a week and a half ago with PDD-NOS over all. He also evidently has ADHD and ODD. The psychiatrist explained that he has a High Function Autism. I have been looking up and reading what ever I could on the internet about this so far. I have run into a lot of interesting resources. Ever since he could crawl I have always had to be right there on his heels to keep him from doing unintentionally harmful things.
Avatar m tn I also feel as if im choking and cant breathe (not sure if you get this or not) It feels as if your dying itds horrible. I also have ADHD so that doesnt help me much either. Stress and anxiety can do hell to your body, I got so bad at one point i lost quite a bit of hair! It just all came out cos i was in such a panic! I avoid taking the anxiety meds but cos they didnt help me much, because my ADHD medication helps keep the anxiety down.
1577469 tn?1296336056 aswell as trying every medication that had a chance to alleviate some of the symptoms, unfortunatly none of them worked, my life is stressfull evn though i do my best to reduce stress its pretty hard to avoid when i have a 6 year old with ADHD, no matter how much i keep up with fitness and relaxation i seem to still get these flare-ups, they say this is caused by stress however b4 the flare ups i am not stressed and yet they still happen and when they do it messes with my head because the flar
Avatar f tn Hello, I've read from alternative doctors that underneath ADHD, panic attacks, CFS, etc. is an adrenal problem and that after treatment, these problems have gone away. I'd like to know what protocols and supplements have been used in rebuilding the Adrenal Glands. Thank you.
1123567 tn?1318236860 I refuse to take any medications for any of my conditions which is manic depression, bipolar, ocd, adhd just to name a few. I've had these conditions my whole life and delt with them without the use of meds and was just fine. But jeez, this anxiety just takes the square. The anxiety is so bad to where sometimes I just feel like I can't even go on with my life, some of my attacks last hours.
Avatar m tn That's what I have done and they can see if you have OCD, ADHD or just suffer panic attacks. Many people over look their mental health but it is as important if not more than your physical health. I am battling both today, day 8 for me. Mentally I am stronger than I have been in 15 months. Physically I am in some good pain. I am enjoying the freedom from depression now and dealing with the pain. I am happy. I hope this helps. I know how you are feeling and I know you can be set free from that.
Avatar m tn I have been diagnosed with ADHD and a self diagnosed Hypochondriac. a few months back I had a panic attack and it was severe. I basically told myself I had an RIDICULOUSLY rare disease called FFI (Fatal Familal Insomnia). I dismissed that thought but the anxiety seems to be coming back. And its not even that the thoughts are coming back. It's the simple fact that my mind seems to be running at 100mph thinking about different things even while I'm trying to relax.
Avatar f tn Panic attacks can be managed by a Psychologist specializing in CBT. Yoga and meditation help. Mindfulness. Learn the CBT and breathing techniques. You'll see a big difference. Depending, you may still require medication. I do a lot of work with my Pdoc and Therapist. I suffer bipolar ADHD and panic attacks. For me I was fine, up until menopause. I did go for a time without medication. Later I suffered a psychotic break which required time in the hospital.
