In Reply to: ADD/ADHD and Allergies posted by Desperate Mother on January 03, 2000 at 18:39:57:

: Is it possible that upper respiratory allergies can mimic symptoms of ADD/ADHD? Or have any link to ADD/ADHD in any way.

I could understand how a person could have a hard time concentrating when they can't breathe correctly, and how that could make someone fidgety, etc., but I don't see how that could cause a lot of the other problems ADDers have.

What IS interesting, is that (at least as I understand), there seems to be some connection between ADD and having respiratory ailments (allergies, athsma)together. I read this on about.com. I also have ADD and respiratory allergies. Strange - I don't understand the connection there.
