Do I have ADD?

Hi!

I'm worried I may have ADD. Somebody at school said that I might in passing conversation, as a bit of a joke, but after looking in to it I think it may be true.

I've had a look on the British NHS Website ([url]http://www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk/[/url]), and find that I am indeed restless, have impulsive behaviour, short attention span and am pretty ignorant. I'm also pretty unpopular!

What should I do?

Thanks for any help.

Re: Do I have ADD?

Well, it's hard to say. Do you think that the symptoms you describe have always been there or did they just begin recently?

Many, many things can cause the symptoms you describe. Probably the most common are depression, anxiety and learning disorders but there are hundreds of other possibilities.

If you are really concerned, then you might want to have a thorough medical and psychological evaluation done. I would do the psych evaluation with a psychologist as opposed to a psychiatrist.
