Avatar n tn Dear Ms. Voisine, Symptoms of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (the correct name for the condition) cluster in three areas: inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Some children display symptoms in all three clusters, some children in two of the three clusters, and some children display symptoms in only one of the clusters. So, the range of possible symptoms can vary greatly.
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.

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.
Avatar f tn He does not have add/adhd but something called sensory integration disorder. LOTS of what you speak of he has in common with her at the age of 9. I've done a lot of thinking and you know what is hard for my son? The struggle he has. HE wants to do better. HE wants to stay focused. It's just hard for him. If I could help, I would.
Avatar f tn Hi, my son has all the symptoms of ADD, however, as his QB test results were within normal parameters we have basically had his case closed by the community paediatricians. Is it possible for a child with ADD to actually get normal results? I just don't know where to turn now...
Avatar f tn Click on the link - Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - at the top of the page and you can get a quick general overview. And if you do go to see a doctor, it certainly wouldn't hurt to run general tests (well, the blood workup will hurt), to rule out other factors. A specialist, like a pediatric psychiatrist, is typically the best way to go. And, yes, all of those things you mentioned are signs of ADHD.
220090 tn?1379170787 Make sure to add me to the "anecdotal" list on this issue. Pre-treatment lots of focus and ability to do complex tasks....post-treatment...scattered thinking, restlestness, memory problems, inattention to details, lack of ability to finish tasks without jumping into other things, total lack of focus....and just about all the other symptoms of ADD...or something eerily similar. Does "aging" cause ADD??? Really??? Not that I have ever read anywhere.
Avatar n tn Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is characterized by symptoms of inattention (such as difficulty sustaining attention, difficulty organizing or completing tasks, and easy distraction), and/or symptoms of hyperactivity/impulsivity (such as restlessness, excessive talking, and difficulty waiting turns. These symptoms must have been present by age 7, with impairment in social, academic, or occupational functioning.
Avatar n tn He was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Generalized Anxiety. He is now 8 years old and with every year he has gained confidence, become less anxious, and the tics have now subsided almost completely. We still see a tic here and there (mostly neck jerking or blinking) especially when under stress, but almost never endless bouts every few seconds like when they first presented. And if you wondering yes, screen time was one of his triggers.
Avatar m tn Memory symptoms/poor attention and recall can also be a manifestation of depression, which is a serious medical condition that should be treated and can successfully be treated. In young adults such as your self, attention deficit disorder (ADD) may also be the cause of inattention and subsequent inability to register information well and later recall it. As you can see there are many potential causes to your symptoms.
1528371 tn?1294017962 That your p-doc wants to add an ADD medication is a bit confusing since you don't appear to have any symptoms of that disorder. It's not up to me to second guess your doctors, but I'm very glad you're getting a second opinion. You will, naturally, talk to your doctor about the floaters in your eyes. These are usually very normal and are simply dead cells floating across our field of vision before they are reobsorbed.
Avatar n tn There is no indication, based on the information you provided, that your son displays Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (often referred to as Attention Deficit Disorder, or ADD). At the very least, the symptoms you describe are not symptoms of ADHD (a 'neurobehavioral' condition manifested by an array of symptoms that involve inattention, hyperactivity and/or impulsivity.

Its not unusual for girls to go undiagnosed with ADD because they are not the hyperactive little boys running around getting the attention.
1393879 tn?1288729049 //helpguide.org/mental/adhd_add_adult_symptoms.htm ADD/ADHD tends to consist of: poor attention/focus, hyperness, poor organization, poor comprehension, retention/retrieval problems, memory issues, having to learn things in a different way, more visual, difficulty understanding questions, needing more time on tests and in studying, etc.
Avatar m tn Ever since 1937, when Dr. Charles Bradley discovered that children who displayed symptoms of attention-deficit hyperactivity responded well to Benzedrine, a stimulant, we have been thinking about this “disorder” in almost the same way. Soon after Bradley’s discovery the medical community began labeling children exhibiting these symptoms as having “minimal brain dysfunction,” or MBD, and treating them with the stimulants Ritalin and Cylert.
Avatar n tn Ted Hoffman, after discussing background and my personal diagnosis as a parent from the reading that I have done (Bipolar Disorder Type Two, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Learning Disabled, Anxiety, and Oppositional Defiant Disorder). Dr. Hoffman said that it was unfortunate that Brandon responded poorly to Abilify because the dopamine is what he needs for his condition, but since this caused a Dystonic Reaction he will have to work around this with different medications.

Avatar m tn Did your doctor diagnose him with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity disorder??? If the meds aren't working your doctor may prescribe ritalin? These are the symptoms notice the inappropriate comments line!!!
Avatar f tn Hi kramsey, how are you doing? It seems you are simply worrying a lot, try to relax and concentrate on your daily routine activities. How old are you and what do you do currently? I do not think of ADD, but you need to discuss with your physician in follow-up visit to be rest assured. ADD - "Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurobehavioral developmental disorder[1][2][3] affecting about 3-5% of the world's population under the age of 19.
Avatar f tn QUOTE Several million children are being treated with Ritalin and other stimulants on the grounds that they have attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and suffer from inattention, hyperactivity, or impulsivity. The stimulants include: Ritalin (methylphenidate), Dexedrine and DextroStat (dextroamphetamine or d-amphetamine), Adderall (d-amphetamine and amphetamine mixture), Desoxyn and Gradumet (methamphetamine), and Cylert (pemoline).
Avatar f tn org/medical-information/show/2157/Attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder-ADHD?page=1#sec_3761 Focus on the Inattention symptoms. On the ADD/ADHD forum where I post a lot, I have seen numerous parents saying similar things. By the way, it is not unusual for an intelligent girl to go unnoticed in school (well, at least till about middle school), while all the hyper little boys are noticed.
Avatar n tn Hi there. Your symptoms are suggestive of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, which is a chronic condition that manifests in childhood and is characterized by hyperactivity, impulsivity and/or inattention. There is difficulty in academic, emotional and social functioning. There are diagnostic criteria and other associated neurological, behavioral and developmental disabilities. Consult a neurologist for evaluation of these symptoms.

Avatar n tn My feeling is that the trauma is not related to the headaches, inattention, or possible seizure disorder. The family history of migraines makes me think that the headaches are migraines. 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.
Avatar n tn If this is the case, the medication will likely be discontinued and the youngster can be started on a different stimulant medication to assist him with his hyperactivity (and any other symptoms of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder - e.g., inattention, impulsivity) he may display. I just wanted to respond to the part in your letter about the little boy on Ritalin with severe eye twitches. My 9 year old son developed an eye tic when on Ritalin-he would blink constantly.
Avatar n tn ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) involves a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity and impulsivity. Usually children with ADHD are of school age before their parents seriously suspect that they may have a problem and have an evaluation done. However, children aged four years and older can be successfully tested and diagnosed for ADHD.
