8506154 tn?1398433086 I'm so sorry to hear about your difficulties. It's really hard to say whether you might have a "sick brain," as you put it.

Ideally, those kinds of issues should always be recognized and addressed in childhood, but sometimes a child with attention deficit disorder or learning disabilities will slip through the educational system without ever being diagnosed.
Avatar f tn s language processing problem is a function of working memory deficit, the five-week program might well be of benefit. Be aware that the program is not specifically designed to remediate language processing difficulties, and the company would never make such a claim.
Avatar f tn Frontal lobe volume is smaller in persons with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. There have been studies proving that brain regions involved in self-regulation show difference with those of controls.

Frontal lobes are involved in motor function, problem solving, memory, language, social and sexual behavior and are very vulnerable to injury.

Avatar f tn I had the tests done so as to see if there was any indication of brain damaging causing reduced executive function and/or attention deficit disorder. As a child I had severe dyslexia, did not speak till I was 4 and few people could understand me till I was 8. I had very poor coordination and used to fall over a lot. Once I reached about 8 years of age I went to boarding school which took me away from a very abusive family situation.

Avatar n tn Have you ever been told you might have ADD (attention deficit disorder)? I mentioned ADD because some of the symptoms can be: Be easily distracted, miss details, forget things, and frequently switch from one activity to another. Have difficulty focusing on one thing. Become bored with a task after only a few minutes, unless they are doing something enjoyable. Have difficulty focusing attention on organizing and completing a task or learning something new.

1472248 tn?1292611095 From the symptoms described this looks to be attention deficit hyperactivity disorder rather than anything related to the previous episode of rolandic seizure. ADHD usually presents in early school years. The child can be either primarily inattentive, impulsive, hyperactive or emotionally unstable. The child often doesn’t seem to listen, is easily distracted, cant sit still and is fidgety, has angry outbursts, social loner, becomes very sensitive to criticism.

Avatar m tn The toxoplasmosis parasite may also trigger the development of schizophrenia, bipolar disorders, Parkinson’s Disease, Tourette’s syndrome and attention deficit disorders." What would I go about doing to possibly see if a link exists between the two? If I were to add a photo, would a professional be able to gaze at it (pun not intended) and give some possible opinions which may help?
