: I feel that I have pretty much grown out of my ADHD. I was terrible as a child, but I am now 19, and I have nearly full control. To the point where medication is completely unnecessary. However, my fiance complains constantly that I am always figiting, tossing and turning at night, and I pick at myself (i.e. a wart on my hand, acne, and little stiff hairs on my chin)I have huge red spots on my chin because I pick so much. Could this figitiness be lingering effects of ADHD, and should I speak with my doctor about possible medication? Or are we both just overreacting?
I would certainly talk to the doctor about this because even if it is just a nervous habit and not part of the ADHD he may be able to help you with this. What have you got to lose??
