If you have any of the above symptoms, you may have ADHD and not even realize it. You may find it difficult to focus on the job at hand and prioritize your priorities. You may miss deadlines and forget things often such as meetings or social get together’s.

Controlling impulses may be a difficult task for you. You may get annoyed waiting in line or driving in heavy traffic and react with mood swings, anger and aggressive behavior.

If you had ADHD as a child, you still have ADHD. If you have adult ADHD, you had it as a child, even if it wasn’t diagnosed.  Most ADHD conditions aren’t diagnosed until something major or severe happens and it’s noticed by a medical professional or a teacher.

Adult ADHD diagnosis can be challenging as many of the symptoms mimic symptoms of other medical conditions. If your challenges are recent and have never occurred before, you likely have a different medical condition but, if you have had these challenges prior you likely have ADHD.

Most adults that have ADHD have one or more mental health conditions like anxiety or depression.

You should seek a doctors advise if you are suffering from any of the following: inattention, hyperactivity, impulsiveness, and these issues significantly disrupt your life style. Your doctor can diagnose you properly and advise you on the best course of treatment or give you some medical tests to see if you have an underlying issue that may be causing these issues. You don’t have to suffer needlessly, seek medical attention today and find out what the real issue is.
