Avatar f tn The symptoms you describe are consistent with an Inattentive-type Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. The evaluation can be conducted by either a pediatric neurologist or a child psychiatrist.

Avatar f tn Ritalin is used to treat attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and narcolepsy (an uncontrollable desire to sleep). When given for attention deficit disorder, Ritalin should be an integral part of a total treatment program that includes psychological, educational, and social measures. Ritalin may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.
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 f tn My son (who is 5) has just been diagnosed as having both attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and having PDD-NOS (pervasive development disorder--not otherwise specified).
Avatar n tn If he is seven or older, you might consider having him evaluated for pssible disorder of attention. Is there a family history of attentional problems? If he is six or younger, there really is not a reason to be concerned.
Avatar n tn These symptoms could be signs of mile autism, but they can also indicate Attention Deficit Disorder(ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). If you continue to see these symptoms regularly I would consult your pediatrician. :) God Bless You.

Avatar f tn Lately,however, additional symptoms are creeping in, and it is not easy to determine whether they are due to my advancing years or to an increase in attention deficit. I am referring to greater difficulty focusing on reading and listening. I also struggle now with remembering names, appointments, the content of conversations etc. In regards to the latter and also to the reading issue, I would certainly blame an increased tendency for the mind to flutter off.

However, there are or can be side effects - so Google whatever med you get and read about it. Usually the doctors start out with a small dosage and wait to hear back from the patient as to how it is working - so make sure you communicate with your doctor.
Avatar f tn My son just turned 17 and in the past 7 weeks he has been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder- inattentive type and Dysgraphia. Also, his neuropsych testing revealed that his "cognitive processing" falls into the "significantly impaired" less than 1% range and his "working memory" also falls into the "significantly impaired" less than 1% range.
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. It seems possible that you could have attention deficit disorder or learning disabilities. 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 n tn I have been diagnosed at different times with panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, bipolar II, and adult attention deficit disorder. I've never felt that any particular one was totally correct, and so have been researching to find out what is wrong. What are some examples of symptoms in "mild asperger's".I have lived most of my life feeling as if things were not quite right.Thank you.
Avatar n tn He also, has Gilberts Syndrome which is a liver disorder that should not produce any symptoms. He has symptoms of ADHD- inattentive type disorder. Lack of focus, attention, and problems with organized thought, especially in writing and problem-solving. Could there be an association with the arachnoid cyst that has been found and some of his other symptoms? How concerned should I be? I had travel plans with my son for a period of 5 months immediately after finding out about his cyst.

Avatar f tn Autistic Disorder, Rett’s Disorder, Childhood Disintegrative Disorder, Asperger’s Disorder, and Pervasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (Including Atypical Autism). ODD is in the same major section, but in the subsection titled: Attention-Deficit and Disruptive Behavior Disorders.
Avatar f tn My 7 year old son, who is doing very well at school, gets complaints about being inattentive in the class. His teacher thinks that he needs some medical treatment whereas his pediatrician fully disagrees as he found him rather well behaved intelligent boy who is bit imaginative but completely fine. I am distressed as I hate to receive notes from his teacher. Don’t know what to do. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/717487'>Focusing issue</a>.
Avatar n tn I don’t think that her stubborn nature is linked with any neurological disorder here since it could be a normal phenomenon of an ADHD (attention deficit hyperactive disorder) child who reacts quite differently in such situation due to poor attention span. Your daughter with ADHD may have attention difficulty, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Therefore, by attention deficit she does not listen to what is said to her.
Avatar n tn Hi, I wanted to know how appropiate it is to medicate a child with attention deficit disorder (non hyper) with Ritalin. I believe that Ritalin is recommended to ADHD children because it helps to control de hyperactivity but I don't know what benefits does it have with ADD children.
Avatar m tn I read somewhere that it is a symptom of Adult Attention Deficit Disorder. Is this true? I do seem to have some of the other symptoms. This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/Dermatology/Severe-Itching-on-arms/show/241701">Severe Itching on arms</a>.
