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 Lauren, You are correct in thinking that there is no test, per se, for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (technically, this is the correct name for the condition). However, there is definitely an accepted method or process for evaluating the presence of this condition.
492869 tn?1285022533 I would like to recommend a behavioral tracker for conditions like: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Asperger's Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and Executive Dysfunction. It could track symptoms like: good/bad behavior, excessive daydreaming, hyperfocusing, perseveration, hyperactivity, sensory seeking behavior (rocking, banging, jumping, flapping, spinning, etc.
4190741 tn?1370181432 Trigeminal nerve stimulation may also be an option for the treatment of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Dr. Cook said. Earlier this month, at the American Psychiatric Association's 2013 Annual Meeting, he presented the results of a small pilot trial that showed good results with TNS as stand-alone therapy in treatment-naïve patients aged 7 to 14 years with ADHD.
Avatar n tn Your daughter is now sufficiently old that the evaluation could produce useful results. Inattentive-type Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is a possibility. It might be useful for you and her teacher to complete one of the several standardized checklists that are employed to help determine the presence of symptoms typical of ADHD (and other conditions as well). Examples of such inventories are the Conners Behavior Checklist and the Basic Assessment System for Children.

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.
Avatar f tn Depending on the version of the checklist that was used, the focus is principally on symptoms of Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Now, it may well be that your son displays symptoms typical of this condition, but that by no means is all that might be going on with him. If indeed he displays ADHD he likely displays some co-morbid condition such as Bipolar Disorder as well.

I have a 4 year old who has been diagnosed with a mild form of autism, so I'm writing from a parent's perspective, rather than that of any medical practitioner. I am absolutely NOT qualified to make any sort of clinical judgement for either of your older sons.

Avatar n tn (attention deficit / hyperactive disorder), though I don't know all the signs of that. I have heard of cases in which one child in a family to be on the autistic spectrum, and to have a sibling who is ADHD though. Regarding a "diagnosis" of autism, or any other condition in that realm, many doctors and other practitioners are reluctant to give that label.
328927 tn?1227765440 So, I have absolutely no clue as to where I am in my cycle in terms of dpo. My BBT is unreliable though since my cat has a serious affection deficit disorder after our 2 week absence and I could not sleep at all. Typically I do not O till cd 13 which is today. Since we were on vacation I did not OPK till cd 11 so not sure when LH surge was first detected. Sorry for being so self-involved... I am so sorry about your nausea! I do hope it goes away soon.
Avatar f tn I've since read up on SPS's and the symptoms are only vaguely similar and seeing as all three of us have the exact same symptoms I doubt it is a simple partial seizure. The symptoms are much to specific to simply be pushed into some vaguely similar preexisting disorder.
363682 tn?1299492962 Are there any other associated symptoms with your headaches like blurring of vision, seeing bright waves or lines? Any associated weakness or numbness that comes with the headaches? Any underlying systemic disease like hypertension and diabetes? Do keep us posted.
