Avatar f tn Hello, Is there anyone, I mean anyone, out there that has rhythmic movement disorder? I have been violently thrashing my body and head, laterally while asleep or mostly somewhat asleep since I can remember. I am 30 now. It use to consume maybe an hour or two a night but now it is getting drastically worse. I find myself doing it or am told that I, "rock", 4-5 hours a night.
Avatar f tn //helpguide.org/articles/add-adhd/attention-deficit-disorder-adhd-in-children.htm My personal opinion is that this test is just a way for inexperienced professionals to deal with a problem they have little knowledge of. Are you in the United States (which state) or England? These doctors are not going to be helpful. You might have more luck going through your local schools. Your best bet is to find a doctor that specializes in ADHD - probably a psychiatrist.
Avatar m tn Has anyone ever been misdiagnosed as bipolar or with anxiety when in reality they have attention deficit disorder, maybe with a combination of depression. I feel like I might be ADD rather than bipolar. I took a test online and it said I score high for likely ADD. Anyone have any thoughts?

An MD or a psychologist can also make the diagnosis as far as I know, but its always best to go to someone that specializes in ADHD. Its too bad about your parents previous experience. All doctors are different, and they shouldn't generalize from one bad experience - particularly when its your mental health that is at stake.
Avatar m tn However I will try to provide you with some useful information. Attention deficit disorder has many symptoms including, but not limited to, forgetful of daily activities, losing things, not listening, easily distractible, making careless mistakes, fidgets, hyperactive, talking excessively, interrupts others, and avoids activities that require mental function. Many people may not know that they have this condition until it is noticed in school or work.
Avatar n tn Common conditions such as mitral valve prolapse, migraines, attention deficit disorder, fibromyalgia, asthma and allergies have all been linked to a Mg deficiency. Perhaps not coincidentally, these conditions also tend to occur in clusters together within the same individual." "Symptoms or signs of the cardiovascular system include palpitations, heart arrhythmias, angina due to spasms of the coronary arteries, high blood pressure and mitral valve prolapse.
Avatar f tn My son is 6 years old and his latest diagnosis are Borderline Intellectual Intelligence, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder), ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Speech delayed and SID (Sensory Intergration Disorder). He is on meds for ADHD and aggression (ritalin, risperdal, and clonidine). All of these things effect his behaviors. Due to the ADHD he has very low impulse control, has trouble paying attention, and is overactive.
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.
10907499 tn?1413742644 I had decided to go for evaluations and was found positive for ADD-PI (attention deficit disorder- primarily inattentive, the daydreamer). So we tried Ritalin and Dextroamphetamine but find that I still have problems. It's not a daily problem that affects things I've known to do on a daily basis and some other daily functions that don't follow a specific plan.

Avatar m tn When you read school work do you only get sleepy or does your mind wander. If it wanders then you may have an attention deficit issue, which is easily fixed.
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.

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 Suri says, "Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurobehavioral developmental disorder affecting about 3-5% of the world's population under the age of 19." At one time, in fact, it was believed that children outgrew ADD or ADHD, and it never appeared in adults. Nobody in the field believes this any more, and in fact Dx of adults who were never Dx as children is not rare.
Avatar n tn I have had major depressive disorder as well as, generalized anxiety and attention deficit disorder for the past 4 years. I am 24 yrs old. and in the past few years I have tried a whole bunch of anti-depressants. Zoloft, celexa, lexapro, buspar. None of which really seemed to help me. About 5 months ago my psych decided to try something else. Cymbalta. I have had great results with decreasing my anxiety from taking 40mg a day, but still not much turnaround with the depression.
1421489 tn?1285529235 Oh, I have to add that my neurologist told me that I had ADD (attention deficit disorder). Imagine that at my age! I teach, and this is a common disorder with a couple of my special education students! He said that more than likely that ADD is related to the MS. He said that increasing the Provigil should help with this symptom as well.

Avatar n tn She can be dramatic and is attentionAttention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd) seeking. She has also told me on a couple of occasions that sometimes she gets really depressed. On the positive side she is pretty, outgoing, confident,funny, slim and seems to be quite popular. She talks to me about her friends/boyfriends, we go shopping together and sometimes cinema. Due to her compulsive lying I started to read her chat logs on a chatroom (MSN).
Avatar m tn The neuropsychiatrist did the standard sort of memory and IQ testing, which showed there was a short term memory deficit present, but general I.Q etc wasn't too bad. The last 2 neurologists I've seen, have both alluded to some sort of pseudo dementia / psychological condition going on, having ruled out all the more obvious things, along with M.S, vCJD, and anything else more organic.
907113 tn?1242492899 [1] Another factor that seems to be common in many cases is a history of regular strenuous exercise.[citation needed] Attention deficit disorder (or drugs used to treat it) and/or a related disorder may be a contributing factor,[citation needed] and people with essential tremor appear to have a greater than normal likelihood of developing BFS.[citation needed] In addition, there are likely other genetic and environmental factors that make the patient more susceptible to BFS.

Avatar f tn tricyclic antidepressants may induce cardiac arrhythmias, bupropion at high doses can cause seizures, and pemoline is associated with liver damage.
Avatar f tn ) These are just some of her supplements, again, based on her specific test results. Anyway, my daughter's brain fog cleared after a few days, and all of her symptoms are gone, except she is still too thin, can't put on weight (the anti-carbs diet isn't helping this, of course!), and she still has cold hands and feet, but it takes time to bring up the iron level. Also, she is a typical stressed out college student who stays up too late and doesn't get enough sleep.
Avatar n tn to faking or drugs from the very first of two ambulances, to the Neurologist that has decided that my son has Attention Deficit Disorder. What I saw that morning, no child could fake. The emotions I saw in him through out that day were sureal and so outrageous, but all the drug tests came back clean. The Neurologist said that the MRI showed damage to his occipital lobe, isn't that a problem? I mean, you can't fake that right?
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!
