359574 tn?1328364024 I have been taking medication for hypertension since I was about 33. I have high cholesterol, and I take statins. I have attention deficit disorder and depression, so I've been on Wellbutrin for 10+ years. I've had impaired fasting blood glucose a few times. I'm overweight, so when you put all that stuff together, I'm one of those metabolic syndrome/prediabetic types. I have a fatty liver and have had elevated liver enzymes a couple of times, so I can't have liquor.
Avatar m tn (a) Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), (b) Oppositional Defiant Disorder, or conduct disorder, but it is difficult to disentangle those features from those of BPD. I certainly exhibited episodes of hyperactivity-impulsivity or just impulsivity, but I cannot find any detailed information about these early years since everyone who knew me then is now dead or not contactable. 2.7.1.
Avatar n tn Alice, ADHD, Attention deficit Hyperactivity disorder, is not necessarily correlated with IQ testing. There is no specific neuropsychiatric test that is diagnostic of ADHD; it is a clinical diagnosis. There are three types of ADHD: inattentive type, hyperactive-impulsive type and combined type. From your description your son may have inattentive type.

Avatar f tn A early diagnosis of a learning disability coupled with attention deficit disorder, E.D., and dyslexia seems to me almost identical to that of a child showing signs of mild brain trauma. How do you differentiate the two and what are the steps in finding out if someone has undiagnosed trauma to the frontal lobes. I am 32 yr now and believe this may be the case for myself, given my parents background of abuse early in life.
Avatar f tn Below information may be helpful to u. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, ADHD, is one of the most common mental disorders that develop in children. Children with ADHD have impaired functioning in multiple settings, including home, school, and in relationships with peers. If untreated, the disorder can have long-term adverse effects into adolescence and adulthood. Asperger's Disorder is a milder variant of Autistic Disorder.
Avatar n tn Then a formal neurological examination to see if there's any objective signs of neurological deficit. After the exam, we give the patient our impression of what's going on and outline a plan of management, including orders for further diagnostic testing. It is very possible that you may need an MRI of the brain.
Avatar m tn If someone finds it difficult to pay attention or feels somewhat hyperactive, “Attention-deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder” has those symptoms right there in its name. It’s an easy, catch-all phrase, which saves time for doctors to boot. But can we really lump all these people together? What if there are other things causing people to feel distracted? I don’t deny that we, as a population, are more distracted today than we ever were before.
Avatar f tn Clinical (medical) depression and anxiety can sometimes be expressed in this way. Also, attention deficit disorder (ADD) may sometimes be the cause of concentration and memory difficulties. Many people think of this as a childhood disorder but it can start in childhood and not be diagnosed until adulthood. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions, I wish the best of luck to your and your physicians in figuring out the cause of your symptoms.
967168 tn?1477588089 Examples include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social phobia and generalized anxiety disorder. Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). ADHD has symptoms that overlap with bipolar disorder. For this reason, bipolar disorder can be difficult to differentiate from ADHD. Sometimes one is mistaken for the other. In some cases, a person may be diagnosed with both conditions. Addiction or substance abuse. Many people with bipolar disorder also have alcohol or drug problems.
Avatar f tn Conditions that often respond include depression, anxiety, epilepsy, phobias, insomnia, fatigue, mood swings, attention-deficit disorder and learning disorders. Additionally, the hair mineral analysis provides a guide for nutritional therapy, as well as a guide for monitoring progress. Comparing the results of repeated tissue mineral tests over a period of months is an excellent way to monitor subtle changes in body chemistry, regardless of which type of therapy is used.
Avatar m tn wow all those symptoms are the same symptoms for parasitic worms
1225331 tn?1333369369 ( Sadly, it can take years to come to a definitive diagnosis of lupus. ANA isn't a be-all, end-all test we are sometimes led to believe. The good news is that a rheumy who suspects an AI inflammatory condition could initiate basic treatment based on suspicions without naming a specific diagnostic code. Do you remember I starting seeing a rheumy last year when I had a huge inflammatory flare with migratory red, swollen, painful joint spaces?
Avatar f tn Your MRI's are also clear of the expected lesion evidence, generally for MS to even be a possibility, there needs to be at least some suggestive diagnostic evidence and when there is not as you've mentioned "I had an mri in jan clear brain and c spine and two neuro exams jan and feb all normal", this would usually be indicating MS isn't the most likely explanation.
Avatar n tn But the doctors have never been able to find out why I'm dizzy. Not their fault; they tried. In any case, an attention-deficit disorder medication called Strattera (atomoxetine) allows me to concentrate normally instead of having the dizziness-induced "fog" that was my big problem. I have also gotten allergy shots the last two years, as my ear doctor believes allergy can make ear problems worse (although I never believed I had allergies until I was tested!).
2190999 tn?1504992491 I ask because my son has a controversial diagnosis named DAMP (Deficit of Attention, Motor control, and Processing). It's a combo of autistic traits, adhd, and an auditory processing disorder. Things have been and continue to be a lot of fun around here, just a little draining on me at times. I'm not in search of any new diagnosis, but this sounds like a good question for his doc the next time we her. What do you think? Good question proud mommy!
Avatar n tn Yes, by all means have her evaluated for both Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Learning Disability. The symptoms you describe could be explainable by ADHD alone, but it is unlikely. Sometimes a learning disability goes undiagnosed until the curriculum becomes a bit more complicated, as it does in the fourth grade.
551343 tn?1506834118 Thank you. I'm glad I'm not the only one with attention deficit issues around here. My mobility is next to zero, these days. I'm stuck in bed 95% of the time, so my options are severely limited. I guess maybe there's no other coping mechanisms, aside from keeping busy, and that's just not working, anymore. Maybe it's time to call a shrink.
Avatar n tn What is ADHD or ADD other than people who can't pay attention? What does it take to pay attention? PRACTICING PAYING ATTENTION! Just like any other thing you want to get better at, it takes practice. In this technological age where commercials give stories in 1 minute and everyone's in a hurry to go finish another pointless task, I think we need to take a step back....
Avatar f tn I was seeing a neurologist for continued headaches and neck tension/spasms, but around when I returned to work full-time, and to light land-based exercise like elliptical trainer, some symptoms started to return (headache, right-sided weakness, equilibrium problems) and some new ones have cropped up (tinnitus, exteme fatigue and sleeping problems, systematic right-sided neurologic deficit - motor, sensory, reflexes, strength - everything.
Avatar f tn 4th neurologist dx DDD and the assumption to be made is that your brain MRI, spinal MRI along with your LP were still 'not' showing abnormal lesions or diagnostic test evidence suggestive of MS.
Avatar n tn I described my symptoms and without running a blood test she determined that I was a classic case of manic depression disorder. Like most guys, I just kind of went with it even though there is no family Hx. After a little research I seemed to not have the entire package of what those that suffer with this disease typically do. So I took the Lithium for about 3 months and began to feel more anxiety and a deeper sense of depression.
Avatar n tn I have been seen by a cardiologist, allergist, pulmonary specialist, gastroentrologist and have had all sorts of tests done also. EKG, chest x-ray, echocardiogram, stress test, breathing tests, CAT Scan, and allergy tests (I looked like a porcupine brushed up against me!). Everything has come back showing nothing is wrong. Which on one hand is great, but on the other hand, what am I supposed to do about my breathing. I have no idea what to do next!
551343 tn?1506834118 I've now been waiting 8 months for the spinal transmag. This test can be used for diagnostic purposes but is widely been used in research for many disorders so basically I'm being slotted in when they can. Neuro's latest thoughts are leber's hereditary optic neuropathy plus syndrome. This is because of my dad's history and the plus syndrome is like an ms syndrome. Trouble is I know leber's is a mitochondrial disorder so it has be passed down from your mother not your father.
Avatar n tn He was a little concerned about some of the symptoms I labeled as neurological, and he suggested strongly that a thorough assessment include tests that we hoped would rule out of e assessed for a demylinating disorder (such as multiple sclerosis). When I read AppleJac's comments, I thought for what must be the umpteenth time since becoming part of this forum, "Well, what do you know?" Dropping things a lot has been one of my most common symptoms.
Avatar n tn Do you correlate with the initiation of these episodes with any particular event? You might be having a rhythmic movement disorder, which more or less resembles the symptoms or even age related. Has your doctor done a sleep study? You need to continue the medication for couple of weeks as advised by your doctor and try to avoid trigger factors like alcohol, smoking and stress. It is better to consult a neurologist and get evaluated. Take care and updated on your thoughts and progress.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am back, went to the ent, said there was nothing significant in my ears and nose. So a hearing test is ordered to determine if he eustatian tube is damaged. I came across a great informative website called houseclinic it focuses on ears and ear disorders. There are so many causes for ear problems, I didn't realize, but, in most cases, the tinnitis,itching,"wet" feeling is an allergic response that sometimes does require surgery.
Avatar f tn So far I've had a diagnostic mammogram (good) and a chest xray (good). The chest xray showed some slight curvature to the spine, but other than that, good. Of course because I've had some tingles and shooting sensations in my left breast, my mind starts to "connect" the two and worry that it is cancer. Dr. says that is highly unlikely and that it sounds like muscles or nerves, myofascial pain, etc.
Avatar m tn My husband says I pay too much attention to my spot and that if I'd just forget it, it would go away. Do you ever get headaches at night from all the squinting and looking at (searching for) your spots? The whole things makes me so depressed sometimes.
Avatar n tn Yes it seems strange that there is little follow up investigation done by the medical profession or at least that seems to be the way in the UK.I felt like I walked blindfold during tx-no information anywhere-even/especially from my specialist nurse.I never saw my liver consultant at all.The only contact I have with the hospital now is to have a viral lode (sp) test every year-that's when I hear the "symptomatic" term used.
