I have been diagnosed already with severe anxiety, depression, and sleep troubles.
The symptoms bothering me now, on a daily basis are:
The back left part of my head burns. My head feels jammed up.
I'm constantly thinking, talking to myself inside, and there's always a song playing in my head.
Obsessing over past.
Moments of hyperactivity.
Trouble focusing during conversation.
My eyes bat when I close them.
Vision seems blurry.
I have tics- shrugging my shoulders etc.
I never seem to get tired.
I seem numb to emotions. I never, ever get mad or upset. I seem apathetic sometimes, but I'm usually frustrated because I can't feel more for something or someone.
Back in high school I got in trouble alot. I had to have a student-parent-teacher conference because all of the papers I turned in had all the edges torn off.
New to this board, and my first post. I have a son with severe ADHD and also moderate OCD. One thing I see with reading your post is worry. no need to deal with it all on your own, find a great psychiatrist, one that can prescribe medication. My son takes quite a bit, but if you ask him, he wouldn't trade his meds or his docs for nothing. He is a happy boy now, not in tears with thoughts and anxiety along with impulses he cannot control. Don't give up see a specialist

I agree you should see a psychiatrist, there is no shame in seeing one. I am bipolar, have ADD, anxiety, mild OCD and panic attacks. I see mine every 3 months and then have to see a special counselor for anger issues (I sound like a ball of fun don't I) But the Dr's do help and can give something especially with your headaches. I hope you start to feel better.
I am glad for these message boards they give you alot of people to talk to that are going through what you going through too so you don't feel alone.
If you ever need to talk I can listen.

That's similar to me. I'm afraid to medicate. But I do find my focus improves when I read a lot although it gets me a LOT to read.
I have anxiety sometimes, stress, nervousness
Sometimes I'm happy sometimes not, it happens in a split second
When I listen to someone speak I can take myself into another and miss have the conversation, my vision gets blurry and I almost feel my eyes crossing that's when I pop back to focus and quickly defocus again.
I have attention of about a few seconds
I start things and never finish, I get bored easily
Definitely depressed most of the time
I snap at people often
I hate when ppl repeat themselves or I have to repeat myself
Then again I am a fire sign!
I used to get headache and migraines ALL the time, not so much any more
Can't sleep, not a sleeper, physically I burn out but always have ongoing energy.
I love having space to myself but hate being alone.
When I'm studying or working, I work for a bit then get distracted VERY easily and start doing something else, then have to remind myself to get back to what I was doing.
