Avatar m tn I'm happy that today there is a lot more understanding about learning disabilities and emotional issues. Hopefully since adults are more understanding, they can make their kids be more understanding. Would some of us been diagnosed with PDD or autism when we were growing up? Possibly. I wonder if some kids who had autism 30 years ago were diagnosed with mental retardation instead?

521840 tn?1348844371 The research suggests that more adults have ADHD than have schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and many other well known mental health problems (though depression remains more common). As Dr. Larry Silver so eloquently described it, ADHD is not just a learning disability; it is a ‘life disability.’ The problems associated with ADHD do not just occur in the classroom or during childhood. In a recent online panel discussion lead by Dr.
Avatar f tn The implications of the trend, as well as its underlying causes, are not fully clear, according to researchers. But they say the findings indicate that outpatient mental health care in the U.S. is being redefined. The results, reported in the American Journal of Psychiatry, are based on data from two government health surveys conducted in 1998 and 2007.

Avatar f tn I have an 11 yr.old son who has learning disabilities, specifically with reading and writing (dyslexia). He was diagnosed by a neurologist with ADHD primarily inattentive. He was put on adderal, concerta, and stratera, respectivey. On all of these meds, he experienced anxiety, inability to sleep, nightmares, crying and depression. He was then put on imiprimine, which he was on for approximately 1 1/2 years now.
Avatar n tn Both children were recently evaluated by the school for learning disabilities. Because of this both children have been seen by many different professionals in the school system. There were lots of different thoughts about their different learning differences, but none of these addressed the issue of talking too much. THEN the speech pathologist saw one of them. She immediately recognized the signs of "Nonverbal Learning Disorder".

Many people think of this as a childhood disorder but it can start in childhood and not be diagnosed into later in life. However, since you have a history of epilepsy. This should be evaluated. I would suggest that you be evaluated by your neurologist and have an EEG performed.
Avatar f tn Hi, It is good that Parkinsons and Tourettes are already ruled out from the differentials. Essential tremors are postural tremors that can occur at any age, and may become progressively more severe with time. Tremors are not to be confused with tics, which are rapid, involuntary movements of the body. All true tremors are greatly reduced or disappear altogether during sleep. It would be helpful to have imaging modalities to rule out structural or musculoskeletal causes.
Avatar f tn Finally, certain people live into adulthood with thinking troubles only later to be diagnosed as learning disabilities or attention deficit disorder (ADD). Many people think of this as a childhood disorder but it can start in childhood and not be diagnosed until adulthood. Regarding your thunderclap headaches, you should have these evaluated if you have not done so already.
Avatar f tn BACKGROUND which may contribute to my symptoms: - I am 25/female - Smoker - Heavy caffeine drinker (3 cups/day) - Had a concussion with complete loss of consciousness/vomiting/CT scan when I was between 10-11 years old - I have been a vegetarian since July 2010 - Started taking a multivitamin only a few weeks ago.
Avatar f tn 1) the mental fatigue (with poor attention, memory, concentration, retention, etc.) with ADHD and other learning disabilities. 2) Physical fatigue (feeling "lazy," poor motivation, easily winded-feeling, need to sleep long hours, naps, etc.) 3) Easily stressed, affecting mental/emotional/physical . I've been trying Magnesium for a few weeks now and I haven't noticed any improvement yet.
Avatar m tn Certain people live into adulthood with thinking troubles that are later diagnosed as learning disabilities or attention deficit disorder (ADD).

Lastly, there is a condition called chronic fatigue syndrome that may be diagnosed after other causes are evaluated. There are several potentially treatable causes to your symptoms.
Avatar n tn My son has always had learning disabilities, but he has a normal IQ. He is also on paxil. His memory seems to be getting worse. He can't remember how to tie his shoes and now he is forgetting how to print. Yesterday, it really scared me. He was pouring gas in a lawn mower, he spilled some on it. Instead of putting the gas cap back on, he tipped the lawn mower so he could get the gas off it. Meanwhile gas is pouring out of it because the cap is off.
Avatar m tn Has anyone with the symptoms experienced further mental abnormalities, mood disorders, tantrum , depression, schizophrenia, Learning disabilities, bipolar, panic attacks, anxiety, Etc.? As for my own situation I had multiple test done CAT scans and sleep test for example all of which came back normal. I could share more but I'm interested in your feedback. I would say try not to scare your child and yourselves with multiple test or meds.
296738 tn?1236000003 I feel like I am at my wits end! He just can't get it. I think that he needs to be tested for learning disabilities. I have sent numerous notes to his teacher about it. All she says is to practice more with him. I don't know how much more practice she expects. With the baby and me trying to work, we work on his homework as much as possible. It is just not working. I cry every day b/c I am frustrated with everything. I want to help him but I obiviously can't. Then there is the baby.
Avatar m tn The tics may be disruptive and mistakenly interpreted by teachers as intended to disturb the class. Often, children with tic disorders have underlying learning disabilities as well. While there does not appear to be any impairment in general intellectual functioning, researchers have identified patterns of specific learning problems in children with tic disorders.
Avatar n tn At four he was accepted into a special-ed pre-k program for learning and motor skill deficits. At age five he was tested and I was told that he was ADHD. I have researched mental disabilities and disorders on my own for several years and did not think that ADHD coverd or defined all of the symptoms and behaviors I was seeing. Bipolar runs in my family, I thought that he might possiblly have some mood disorder issues, not certain if it was bipolar.
585414 tn?1288944902 The Clozaril didn't cause it (the reports of it causing that are extremely rare, however, in not causing it, it can reverse itself if caught in time as the brain can heal from other neurological disabilities, as psychiatry is learning, it does not cure it although its a good antipsychotic agent overall) but it didn't mask it either. I developed dissociative delusions. "I'm like "The Man Who Wasn't There" I said to my psychiatrist "I don't exist".
Avatar n tn We got him all the testing necessary and found that he does not seem to have bipolar at the moment but pretty severe ADHD with some learning disabilities. He is going to start the progression on to higher doses very slowly. He will be on 5mg for two weeks then 10 mg for two weeks and so on....and the teachers are just going to have to be patient. They have to understand that the kids aren't going to go from 0 to 60 mg in a month or a week....
Avatar f tn The story ranged from that Daddy did hit him and that he did not. My son is a special needs child with Learning Disabilities. He also showed many different things about how he got his bloody nose. Everything from Daddy hitting him to my son falling on the floor and smacking his nose on the floor. I am putting all of my energy into dealing with my depression so that I can deal with my son better.
871193 tn?1239750728 *Constant tiredness (even when I get enough rest, and I can tell the difference between actually being tired or lacking sleep and simply just feeling tired) *Severe inability to concentrate (previously diagnosed as ADD) *I've had one known seizure as a child that was later thought to be related to my learning disabilities (ADD). And over the past year or so I've experienced these issues: *Migrains or clusters, I do not know which of these it is...
1831414 tn?1318862548 Just checking on the " DRUG....Adverse Reactions.....area". You didn't by chance ever take " WELLBUTRIN"........for depression? It can cause all.......adverse reactions you've described....YES,and DEATH! Wellbutrin destroys brain neurons in the 1 ) Temporal Lobe: Memory, Judgment,90%.....after taking for a while....neuron degeration continues...causing "Mild Cognitive Impairment"...
Avatar n tn My daughter is 9 and exhibiting these similar behaviors and more. We have just completed a series of testing in school to rule out learning disabilities, I am waiting for the results and evals. She has already been tested positive for severe allergies and has been on a regime for 2 years now. She tested negative for lead. We are seeking counseling for social, depression, and/or ADD. She is highly creative, at times extremely emotional.
12832842 tn?1448732401 Although fortunately I don't have depression, I asked about this occurrence, and specifically about mood disorders other than depression, since depression is all I'd read of. He agreed that MS can also cause primary anxiety, which makes sense. I then asked about bi-polar illness, and he said no, that's not MS. Hmm. He usually is one to offer very specific research data to back up his statements, and what he said contradicts what is above.
