Attention deficit disorder evaluation scale

Common Questions and Answers about Attention deficit disorder evaluation scale


Avatar f tn This delay can be seen along with other things often such as autism or attention deficit disorder but it can be all by itself as well as with my son. My son also would spin. He'd **** his head to the side when he did it and we actually found it "cute" and called it dancing until we started to feel it was a major impulse for him. It was. He is a sensory seeker and that was something he would do. I found he did it when he wanted to calm himself.
Avatar m tn As many as 50%–80% of children with Tourette's disorder have some symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder(ADHD), including a short attention span, restlessness, poor concentration, and diminished impulse control. On average, ADHD will manifest two and a half years before the tics appear. A dual diagnosis of ADHD and tic disorder is associated with more severe tics and greater social impairment than for tic disorder by itself.
Avatar n tn I'm on Pregabalin which has reduced the level of my suffering, but the cognitive problems remain. Ritalin treats these symptoms in attention deficit disorder (ADHD-PI). Is Ritalin ever prescribed to treat these symptoms in chronic pain?
Avatar f tn The information came from Brown, T. E. (2000). Emerging Understandings of Attention Deficit Disorders and Comorbidities. In Attention Deficit Disorders and Comorbidities in Children, Adolescents and Adults. T. E. Brown, Ed. Washington, D.C., American Psychiatric Press: 3-55.
Avatar f tn Sudden transient electric-like shocks extending down the spine triggered by flexing the head forward. Due to a disorder such as compression of the cervical spine (the portion of the spinal cord within the neck)........
Avatar n tn Research also shows that sugar does not cause hyperactivity. Many factors can cause children to have problems paying attention besides an attention deficit disorder. Family problems, stress, discouragement, drugs, physical illness and learning difficulties can all cause problems that look like ADHD, but really aren't. Regardless of the cause, ADHD is thought to be associated with a disturbance in functioning of neurotransmitters in the brain.
Avatar f tn After an evaluation from an ENT, he immediately stressed his concern of MS, and ordered an MRI (brain and cervical spine). I immediately scheduled an appointment with a neurologist and walked the MRI films in with me. The neurologist confirmed no "significant" findings on the MRI of which I remained suspicious considering my debilitating symptoms. Shortly after, and with symptoms persisting, I located another neurologist to review the findings and evaluate me further.
Avatar f tn I sort of liked Huckabee (although I am a liberal) but these religious zealots, especially those that want creationism taught in schools and those that change their minds as the winds blow will certainly not think that the druggie diseases are worth fighting for. Probably want us to crawl in a hole and die. Who was it that NEVER mentioned HIV back in the 80's during his presidency? I agree with Goof. Nothing will be done. And to be fair remember Hillary's health plan?
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 f tn In looking for whats the cause, I've seen a lot of things, but I don't think I have a sleep disorder, because I sleep great. I've never taken drugs, prescription or non. One message board mentioned that its merely a nutritional deficiency thing, so I'm going to try some multi vitamins. That doesn't seem like it could be it, but i'll try about anything. And if that doesn't work, I'm going to have my head examined.
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 Probably, I have some type of seronegative arthritis such as a.s. I also have an ai blood disorder. I'm glad I'm SVR and I'll do what I need to do to treat these autoimmune issues as well. In my view, the ai problems are still better than the alternative.
Avatar n tn But he said he wants to send me to Boston to another specialist for further evaluation. I know that this info may not be too helpful right now, but at least this is the first doctor out of 4 to even BELIEVE me and to follow through with trying to find a way to help. Keep me posted, I'll keep you posted.
Avatar n tn WOW! I too did not know there were so many fellow undiagnosed sufferers of the same symptoms. Mine have been around at least a year. I,too,have had MRI's,x-rays and chiropractic no happy end. Mine started with a burning pain between my right shoulder blade and my spine. I get tingling on top of both shoulders,and have quite a bit of upper neck pain.
Avatar n tn The most upsetting thing to me is to deal with doctors who seem to believe that since my father has lived 80 years, I should accept the prognosis, run along and quietly wait for him to pass away. He cannot speak, and did not pass an evaluation to eat or drink. The doctor has tried to convince me that my father cannot hear believes he is completely non responsive. I know that my father can hear me. When I enter the room he turns to my voice and consistently grips my hand.
363682 tn?1299492962 As a result of the previous posts, I've now done an updated evaluation of what I tried before and come to the conclusion that neither the anti-histamine nor the ibuprofen really do make much of an impact on these headaches when they happen. However, I now think that the application of analgesic gels (the types that feel really icy on your skin) right across the back of the neck from right under my left ear downwards then right across to the other side ...
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 Maybe if your doc gets something in the mail from them they might pay a little more attention to this matter and get to the bottom of this for us.
Avatar m tn i recently moved into a sober house and the bed i am in has a bed bug infestation, i am allergic to these little ******* and they bit the **** out of me, bites all over me, after burning out the room for a 2nd time with some big *** heater, they died for a little bit, but of enduring that **** for almost 2 weeks it gave me post tramatic stress disorder, i havent found any bed bugs for 5 days straight.
Avatar n tn But then the next day I realized I was competing with xhamster, rawtube, youporn, hardsextube for my husband's attention. I am just one woman. How can I possibly complete with porn stars and freaky amateurs. That got me wondering about all the amateur videos posted on those sites. I wondered if perhaps these women were allowing their sex sessions to be taped in order to keep up with their partners' addition.
