Avatar n tn Complications of Tourette's syndrome are usually psychosocial. However, there are cases where some develop conditions such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorders, depression and anxiety disorders. Aside from these, and to the best of my knowledge, no other significant brain damage occurs with this condition. You can consult your neurologist and ask him/her regarding this.

Avatar n tn An additional possibility (which can occur alongside depresion) is that he displays an inattentive form of Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. It would make sense to have him assessed by a child mental health professional. The diagnosis can be clarified and, if pertinent, medication and other interventions can be planned.
Avatar m tn During the past two decades, child psychiatry has already provoked three fads- a tripling of Attention Deficit Disorder, a more than twenty-times increase in Autistic Disorder, and a forty-times increase in childhood Bipolar Disorder.

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 Your son's behavior and emotional states indicate that he may well display some neurobehaviral disorder (e.g., Attention-Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder), a mood disorder (e.g., Bipolar Disorder), a so-called Axis II condition (i.e., aspects of his personality or character that may be fairly enduring, as opposed to conditions which have identifiable onsets and courses), and possible neurological disorder (e.g., seizure disorder) and psychotic disorder.
Avatar n tn It's not something that is your fault or that you can necessarily change on your own. From your description, it sounds like you might also have ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder). Some of your personality reminds me of my son, who has both ADHD and depression/anxiety disorder. He is in his 20's but with medication he's done OK, and is very smart and now working on a Master Degree.
Avatar f tn I do not think that it is Attention Deficit Disorder, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or a psychological disorder. I think that is simply either A.) a need for attention, or B.) peer pressure. Many parents I meet do not pay much attention to their children or, they feel like they do not need to be friends with their children, but they are wrong.
