Common Questions and Answers about Attention deficit disorder remedies


Avatar n tn I also recommend looking into whether you have ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder, which I do not consider a disorder, but it is definitely a brain thing and causes anxiety) and/or hypoclycemia (low blood sugar, which causes terrible depression). In the case of ADD, just having the right job and environment can help get rid of the anxiety (usually a creative and non-judgemental environment helps).
Avatar f tn Since you know you have OCD and bi-polar, chances are you are in the care of a physician. Let him know, of course, about this feeling - feelings can be VERY important warnings that something is not right physiologically. Have you had a good, over-all medical workup, including screenings for allergy/autoimmune issues? Sometimes our psychiatrists don't catch these things. Have you been evaluated for possible ADD?
Avatar n tn Persistent Insomnia can be caused by Medical Conditions, allergies, arthritis, heart disease, hypertension, asthma, rheumatologic conditions, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, hyperthyroidism, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and some of the drugs that treat them.
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 n tn What Causes Restless Legs Syndrome? The exact cause of restless legs syndrome is not known. The idiopathic or primary form of the disease seems to occur sporadically for unknown reasons. A family history of RLS is reported in many of these patients, suggesting a genetic component to the disease. Documented cases of parent-to-child transmission suggest that, in some familial cases, RLS may be inherited. In 2001, a French-Canadian group reported on a study of 25 family members, 14 of whom had RLS.

Avatar n tn The type of headache described fits the migrainous picture. And no, advil is not the medication for this. The inattention can be Attention deficit or it might be seizures. The most likely type of seizure is absence.

220090 tn?1379170787 Each time I took interferon, it left me with Attention Deficit Disorder that was long lasting. Each treatment seemed to be additive. After my last treatment that ended in 2008, I ended up with full blown ADD that made me impulsive and seriously detracted me to the point that I could not read and process anything that was very detailed. I spent much of my career managing large software projects, so I was very lucky this didn't happen until after I retired.
Avatar n tn _ Dear Pam, Your note suggests that you think your son's difficulties may involve more than Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and learning disability, and you are probably correct. The extent of his eating/weight problem and the volatility of his mood indicate the possibility of a mood disorder (of which his eating habits may be a symptom). It is neither possible nor appropriate to offer diagnoses in a forum such as this, but there is definitely help available.
Avatar f tn It's like having someone shouting at you, or trying to talk with a fire alarm going off in the room. The effect of pain on the mind can seem like attention deficit disorder. So you may have to repeat a request, or write things down for a person with chronic pain. Don't take it personally, or think that they are stupid. 4. The senses can overload while in pain. For example, noises that wouldn't normally bother you, seem too much. 5. Patience may seem short.
359574 tn?1328364024 I have been taking medication for hypertension since I was about 33. I have high cholesterol, and I take statins. I have attention deficit disorder and depression, so I've been on Wellbutrin for 10+ years. I've had impaired fasting blood glucose a few times. I'm overweight, so when you put all that stuff together, I'm one of those metabolic syndrome/prediabetic types. I have a fatty liver and have had elevated liver enzymes a couple of times, so I can't have liquor.
Avatar n tn Well I actually took prozac for 3 years the inital year or two it helped tremendouly with depression but just like everything else your body will develop a tolerance. It is non addictive however I was taking it more for obssesive compulsive disorder. I used to be a real clean freak and after a couple of months taking it I actually almost turned into a slob. Also it will initially surpress your appetite I lost 30 pounds the first two months I liked that.
Avatar n tn Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. I'm blessed to have tons of energy even on tx. I am so hyper it drives people crazy. Also I have some mexican blood from my father's side so I think my quick temper can outdo any red-head's! I was up last night till about 1:30. Got up at 5:30 with my grandbaby, went back to sleep at 7:00 up at 9:00 and now off to work all day at 2 jobs. And I feel pretty crappy too, just no problem in the energy dept. till about 7:00 tonight!
Avatar n tn I tried avoiding food allergies, adding enzymes and hcl, changing eating and drinking habits, herbal remedies with little and only temporary relief. My stomach is almost permantently distended now by gas, which is only relieved by fasting for 24 hours. It frequently interferes with my running. After hours of belching after dinner, I sleep normally only to awaken with more massive belching, and a residual feeling of bloated stomach.
363110 tn?1340924019 (There's no evidence so far, however, that marijuana use during pregnancy causes attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). One study even found that young children whose mothers smoked marijuana during pregnancy had a higher risk of leukemia than those whose mothers did not. What's more, there's no way to know if the pot you're smoking has been laced with other drugs (such as PCP) or contaminated with pesticides, which would put your baby at even higher risk.
Avatar n tn Hi ive had a blocked right ear for 2 months now have seen the doctor twice he says its fluid and gave me a decongestant well theres no signs of improvement i have to go back he says if its no better and he will get me an appointment with ENT but its driving me mad with worrying whats wrong i havent had a cold or anything it feels blocked and every noise is muffled and echoes through my head and feels like a grinding feeling in my ear and head has anyone else had this and how long does it
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 n tn I just had blood work done by my GYN (no other Dr. suggested it) so it'll be 2 weeks before I know any results from that. I also have panic being like this for so long has caused that to kick in even more and I'm taking more Xanax. I'm thinking something's just weird this year....and whatever it was, I got it! I've heard of a lot of people being like this this year. I don't have a deviated septum and Dr. said I didn't need surgery...but if it would help me I would try it!
Avatar f tn your bladder. I had surgery to relieve the numbness and burning and now have a motor deficit in my right arm. Be careful ask questions, get second opinions, ask about alternatives and most importantly find out all the risks for each. Please note nerve damage can irreversable from being pinched for a long period leaving you with the burn and pain,numness ect.
Avatar n tn drinking caffeine has six times caused sever panic disorder. a disorder that i did not have before caffeine. most likely it built up over the years and now I am having a toxic reaction/allergy to it. I researched this and it is amazing connection Stopping Caffeine intake for a month and no chocolate or other sweets that have caffeine. Get your life back. I was diagnosed with anxiety disorder, but now I don't use any medicine at all, just no caffeine.
288415 tn?1231634102 I have tried almost all the remedies described here with only temporary relief. Today I called my dr. and have asked for Dermotic Oil to try. I do want to mention. I have 2 dogs, one which is being treated for a yeast infection in her ears. She digs and groans at her ears. They actually smell the same as mine at times, I did try Monistat. Again, only temporary relief. Not sure if it was a good idea, but as most of you know, when your desperate, you'll try anything to relieve the itch.
551343 tn?1506834118 This is because of my dad's history and the plus syndrome is like an ms syndrome. Trouble is I know leber's is a mitochondrial disorder so it has be passed down from your mother not your father. My swallowing problems have worsened over the past couple of years. It also takes me so long to eat plus with loss of appetite I really am fighting to keep calories up. My speech can also be affected but it's all due to spasticity. So a couple of days ago I developed what we think is an anal abscess.
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.
