Hey everyone, My names matt and Im 22 years old and i have a bit of a problem on my hands. Ok, heres the deal. I have alot of ADHD symptoms. 1) I flat out cant focus on things and its becoming very hard for me. 2) MY brain is racing and I cant seem to relax, im always fidgity. Its like i have this drive or something, even sitting down is tough to watch tv or read a book. Now, heres the biggest problem that makes sitting still hard as ***l, I cant stop blinking my eyes. It so annogying it happens all the time. I try to keep moving to keep my self occupied so I dotn notice the blinking, but its getting bad. the blinking happens most when im not really doing anything. and I know I said I cant focus, but its getting to the point where all i can focus on is the stupid eye blinking. and when i have to sit still, Ive developed of scratching the side of my face as it seems i dont think of the blinking when i do it. it stinks because I tend to dwell on things, and in this case im dweliing on whats wrong with me. Is it adhd a mild case of turrettes perhaps? or am I just anxious? is it depression? Stress??? please, if anyoen could help me, id be so very grateful

  • Hi Matt, Have you seen a Neurologist for the blinking and twitching problems?? Has your back and neck been MRI'd, to see if there are any nerves being pinched? Have you had a brain scan? How abt tests for Lyme and Co infections? Many neuro problems have been lined to them. Esp ADHD & Turrettes. Please see a dr quickly and get some answers, cause it won't get beter with out proper treatment and dx. And let us know what you find out. Best wishes~~Jersey Lymie

  • Hi there,my kids and I all have ADHD or ADD.I would suggest several things being:Go see a specialist for the ADHD - there is no cure but you can manage it as we do. You need medication to help you with the lack of attention items. There are additional things you can do - and yes many folks scoff at this but it does minimise the medication doses. We DO NOT eat anything that has artificial flavourants, colourants or preservatives. The only fizzy drink you can have is Coke (don't ask why'- it does not seems to have any effect). Minimise the amout fo sugars you have and take Omega 3 and Omega 5 oils. Believe me I have heard all the scoffing about this - but all I know it works!You will feel better.If you treat the ADHD properly the ticś invariably settle down - as was my daughter case. She has ADHD, ODD and tics and with medication of the ADHD (like Concerta) the other symptons are relieved.Bear in mind there is no cure so do not waste your time on seeking one.Good luck!

  • You need a brain scan. After that, so totally change your diet and become organic and healthy, no pop, coffee, tea, candy...get checked for diabetes...exercise...structure your day so you are busy...keep to a schedule...do yoga or TaiChi, meditate, join a gym, go to the Y....you can change your life but going to a doctor may make it worse. But you do need to check for tumors or brain damage (I don't think you have it, but check for it)...

  • I hear you. I'd thought I was the only person to suffer this 'curse' as I call it. We just gotta hang on..surely things will get better. Focusing on the Lord seems to help.
