Exclamation Diagnosing ADHD

So I don't know if I'm even doing the right thing here but I was wondering if anyone could help

The symptoms or phhycological issue present as

Mood swings†
Attention seeking behaviors†
Anger†
Spelling problems
Easily distracted concentration issues†
Mild paranoia†

Does this sound like ADHD or something different entirely?

Re: Diagnosing ADHD

Hi Lamas12,

Mood swings
Attention seeking behaviors
Easily distracted concentration issues

All of these could be attributed to ADD. In addition if the anger is caused by feelings of frustration that could be ADD-related as well.

A book I found helpful was "Healing ADD ...6 types.." Dr.Daniel G. Amen
His other book "Change your brain, Change your life" is good too, it goes into other brain areas...cool brain scan pictures I also like the true people stories of his patients that he's helped
Also, in both books there are symptom checklists
