1472248 tn?1292614695 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 n tn Please seek out proper medical attention to get a correct diagnosis and then hopefully, proper treatment. Attention (or lack thereof) cannot solve mental health issues (and this is what I think might be the problem). And, if the treatment requires medication, so be it.
Avatar f tn Children mature at different rates. This sounds like a description of my child. He is in 1st grade now, we held him back from the second grade this year, and just from Aug-Dec of this school year he has made a lot of improvements. Just keep an eye on him, meet with his teacher and ask how he is doing with his milestones as far as eduction. As long as he is on track with his class, then he should be fine.
Avatar f tn Post a Comment » Read All Comments (50) » The pills boost focus and impulse control in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Although A.D.H.D is the diagnosis Dr. Anderson makes, he calls the disorder “made up” and “an excuse” to prescribe the pills to treat what he considers the children’s true ill — poor academic performance in inadequate schools. “I don’t have a whole lot of choice,” said Dr.
118225 tn?1278658540 Sometimes learning difficulties can be attributed to what "seems" like an attention deficit disorder, when the root of the problem is actually that the child is having difficulty processing oral and written commands and accessing written print (as well as printing it). It is good that you are getting it checked out. The other thing is too, his medication might have some side effects that you want to discuss with your doctor.
Avatar n tn Other times, an adult can either simply never been diagnosed as a child, or develop the disorder later on in life. Adult attention deficit disorder looks a lot like childhood attention deficit disorder. That shouldn’t come as a surprise, since the symptoms are largely the same.
Avatar m tn Severe anemia, liver and kidney dysfunction causing brain fog, some mental disorders like schizophrenia could be the cause of your symptoms. You need proper assessment by a psychologist and a psychiatrist and if it is indeed attention deficit disorder, then proper treatment for this. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral. Take care!
Avatar m tn I have a brother that has been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. He was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder as a young child. Due to his impulsive behavior he made many bad choices, and he was disruptive. He seemed rebellious or vindictive when he could not have things done his way. Is there a correlation between borderline personality disorder, and ADHD or ODD. I recently completed a paper regarding the relationship between the two conditions.
Avatar f tn An example of a personality disorder would be BPD (borderline personality disorder). There are others - if you google the phrase "personality disorders" you will be able to find them. Personality disorders are long-term patterns of thoughts and behaviors that cause serious problems with relationships and work. People with personality disorders have difficulty dealing with everyday stresses and problems. They often have stormy relationships with other people.
Avatar n tn Your granddaughter has had a difficult beginning to her life, and she will require a significant degree of help. She appears to display an attachment disorder - i.e., a deficit in the ability to form trusting relationships with others, particularly with those in a parenting role. It'll be important for her to receive professional services, and for you to avail yourself of such help as well. You are facing a daunting task, and you are correct in seeing the need for some support.
Avatar m tn You have certainly got a lot to be proud of given how hard it has been for you to deal with your depression, anxiety and frustration. You may not be surprised to learn that there are not simple answers to the problems that you have had to wrestle with your entire life. When I approach someone with a story similar to yours I find that I need to take a lot of time doing an assessment.
Avatar f tn How do I explain the underlying things going on in my child's brain? How do I explain to them that ADHD is NOT a responsibility disorder, but a Learning Disability that needs their attention?

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 f tn My job is tedious and requires organization and I am scared if I go back to early they will fire me for incompetence. Please keep in mind, I started this treatment with a General Anxiety Disorder that had been under control for 4 years or more. I now have a Panic Disorder, social disorder, and generally a broken type A brain. Am I alone?
Avatar n tn I did some research both online and from texts, including taking the WHO adult self-report scale for attention deficit disorder. I told my psychiatrist my situation and asked to be put on Strattera. It has had a marginal effect overall; we've slowly moved up the doses to the current 80mg. I understand that this is still only a moderate dose for this medication, but my hope for it having any lasting effect has faded.
Avatar f tn I also take Citalopram and Adderall at ten milligrams once a day for depression and attention deficit disorder. Thanks, I would appreciate a quick response to this question.
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 n tn I'm convinced I have hypothyroidism r/t burning my thyroid out and post tx Attention deficit disorder. I'm ready to try Ritalin at this point just to feel some energy..
163305 tn?1333672171 Even the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence guidelines, to which your report refers, do not question that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is a “real” brain disorder, rather than a convenient way of labelling a child who is boisterous and disruptive in class. Ask paediatricians how often they saw children with “minimal brain dysfunction”, as ADHD was then known, in the 80s, and their answers range from one in 100 to one in 500.
Avatar m tn (a) Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), (b) Oppositional Defiant Disorder, or conduct disorder, but it is difficult to disentangle those features from those of BPD. I certainly exhibited episodes of hyperactivity-impulsivity or just impulsivity, but I cannot find any detailed information about these early years since everyone who knew me then is now dead or not contactable. 2.7.1.
Avatar n tn So,soon after treatment I began experiencing extreme attention deficit disorder type symptoms and had a very difficult time getting back into my life. I couldn't complete a task to save my life so With the help of a wonderful doctor, I started on Strattera which kicked started my brain into focused thoughts and I've been working with adderall and strattera ever since. So all has been moving forward in this regard.. But ...
Avatar n tn Limited research was done in the use of medications for ODD (oppositional defiant disorder). Stimulant medications can be used if ODD co.-exist with ADHD ( Attention - deficit hyperactivity disorder). Medications are not usually recommended as an option. Other treatment approaches that are found to be beneficial include family therapy, individual psychotherapy, parent management training and behavioural therapy. I hope this information is helpful to you. Sincerely HFHS-M.D.

Avatar f tn I can tell you that worse brain fog I had from Candida infection I had or probably still have but it is getting better. You can find test or questionnaire for this and treatment bc it is very toxic infection and can cause hormonal imbalances like adrenals and other.
