4 Signs You May Be Suffering from ADHD

adult adhd doctor

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common childhood disorder that usually lasts into adulthood. While many people with ADHD can overcome the childhood challenges, others continue to experience significant impairment as they get older. Almost 4% of Americans over 18 years of age face ADHD daily, confirming that it isn’t only a childhood disorder but continues into adulthood.

ADHD is a brain disorder that is best diagnosed and treated by an adult ADHD doctor. ADHD features poor concentration, hyperactivity, impulsivity, and restlessness, though it varies from person to person.

Poor Concentration

In general, people with ADHD have trouble focusing on tasks or activities for long periods and have difficulty sitting still. They get bored quickly and find it hard to concentrate on things they don’t enjoy doing. You may experience trouble following directions, and you can’t seem to finish anything you start and forget daily tasks, like brushing your teeth.

Hyperactivity

People with ADHD are fidgety and move constantly. This behavior can make it hard to follow instructions or finish tasks. They may also be impulsive and tend to speak out when excited or frustrated instead of waiting their turn or listening carefully to others’ responses.

Disorganization

You may encounter challenges in keeping things like clothing organized and neat. For example, you may often lose things or put them where they don’t belong, such as putting clean clothes in a dirty hamper.

Anxiety

Anxiety can be a reaction to the challenges of living with ADHD and the stress of trying to keep up with everyday activities. People with anxiety may feel stressed or worried when at home or in public places. They might feel tense all day long or experience panic attacks during high stress and pressure. People with ADHD often experience anxiety because they worry about what will happen in the future or are afraid they’ll make a mistake now.

You can manage the condition by seeing an adult ADHD doctor for treatment with medication or other therapies. If left untreated, ADHD can lead to many problems, including poor social relationships and even substance abuse.

However, there are many ways an adult ADHD doctor can treat ADHD effectively. Call us to find out how ADHD affects your brain and body, how to diagnose it, and treat it.
