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 m tn This is a forum for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). I think you might want to try another forum. However, I do know that growth hormone is given to children who have a severe growth problem. Whether your son's growth problem is severe enough, I don't know. I am also not sure at what age the treatments are started. I assume that since you gave his measurements in centimeters you are European.
961762 tn?1265233311 I agree with jen, this is likely an "attentional" problem related to the cognitive probems that are famous in MS. In the case of staring aimlessly it would be the problem of keeping your mind on whatever task you are doing. In kids with Attention-Deficit, they have "daydreaming". When you ask them what they were "thinking" about they will honestly say "nothing.
Avatar f tn A friend of mine is raising her grandson (he's 6) who has an attention deficit disorder. She has complained of many of the same things as you. He was diagnosed with this at 4, and has come along way. I would have your son evaluated just to be on the safe side, the sooner you catch this the better. It sounds like you're a wonderful mother, and he is disciplined. Your son is easily distracted and this is from lack of concentration. Talk to his pediatrician about this and go from there.
Avatar n tn Hi there. Your symptoms are suggestive of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, which is a chronic condition that manifests in childhood and is characterized by hyperactivity, impulsivity and/or inattention. There is difficulty in academic, emotional and social functioning. There are diagnostic criteria and other associated neurological, behavioral and developmental disabilities. Consult a neurologist for evaluation of these symptoms.
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 n tn The second thing is that he definitely has many of the signs of attention deficit disorder, or ADD. Not ADHD from what you have said, but ADD. This site has more info on ADD - http://helpguide.org/mental/adhd_add_signs_symptoms.htm. The trouble with ADD is that it is not easily noticed because the child is not hyper. And if they are smart enough to pull good grades in early years, they can be completely overlooked.
Avatar f tn I've always felt a little religious, but religion has brought a lot of hell to people on this planet, I think people having faith in something is good for a large majority of the human race and instills a certain amount of morality allowing for our societies to exist, but some day we are going to have to draw the line! Huckabee wanted to quarantine HIV positive people back in the 80’s!!!!!!!!
Avatar f tn It doesn't seem to be like its stemming from a dream or a nightmare, i just open my eyes at night and see these, things in the room with me. People in the corner, maggots, snakes, spiders, mice in the bed, even the ceiling caving in. It's really getting old. When I was single, it was just kind of funny. But now that I'm married, its awful. I try to pull my wife out of the bed to save her or cover her face with the pillow so the animals don't get her.
Avatar n tn Are there some new treatments that appeared recently to counteract exhaustion and pains ? Do people group themselves in associations to better fight against this disaster ? Would you have some testimonies, books or adresses to advice us in order to be updated in the comprehension of these sides effects and their potential treatments ? Any information will really be of great help, With my best regards.
Avatar n tn Jules, People call me Doctor for a reason. Actually, I am not sure if you have even bothered to read my posts, on another thread regarding M.D. but they are essentially in agreement with yours. Hot air indeed....
Avatar m tn I feel that many people these days are labeling symptoms as causes and afterall people can name a disease after either. Before you respond to me with your opinions I ask that you try what I am suggesting first and then you can respond to me with facts not opinions because you will have ruled out whether I am right or wrong by actually trying it.

Avatar n tn It normally connects along the top edge of the scapula (shoulder blade), but apparently in some people it connects to the clavicle or other locations in that area. If I put a finger just inside the acromion (that bone that sticks up on top of my shoulder), and roll it backward and down into the notch between the outer end of my clavicle and the top of my scapula, I can feel the end of the omohyoid. It is extremely sore - on the order of the pain other people are describing here.
Avatar n tn Also said that since I have an auto-immune problem that I need to try to avoid sick people and stay as healthy as I can, rest etc and let my body correct itself. They did tons of blood work and will have the results by the end of the week. THe cold feeling is actually better this afternoon, but have pain and tingles in my back ? Normal right ???? I am trying really hard NOT to read anything else on the web about GBS and side effects. I think I will stick to this site.
Avatar n tn If I had my choice over again I would not have gotten involved with porn, I feel that it is to late for me now, I must admit looking at porn helps me to achieve orgasm easier and I do enjoy it so I dont expect to stop in the near future, from what I have read I guess I am lucky I can still reach orgasm at my age.
162948 tn?1205256292 I HATE Mirena! I must be the "rare" side effects group expect now I'm finding tons of people like me. After insertion, I bled for the first THREE months straight, which after a month I called the doctor and he said it sometimes happens. From then on it's been an on going mess. I will have a period then not again for a month or two, then twice in one month! I have to carry supplies with me all the time.
