OKAY, I GOTTA type this question quickly. I'm 20 years old and I think I have adhd, though i dont think im hyper.. i just have really bad memory such as dont know what i said just a few seconds ago or i have something in my hand but im still looking for it, not realising its already in my hand or have something in my hand but forget to put it back and take it with me instead. Also, and cant concentrate at all. it's really hard for me. for example, when im talking to anyone and start to listen to them, my mind drifts of somewhere else and my brain just starts think about something else and when it's time for me to answer. I really dont know what to say and i just nod my head like a dumbo. I have realised i had this in my younger years when i was in school, in my school reports i always got told i daydream alot and not very talkative. My family just thought I was just a slow guy with a brain that processes slowly. I remember when my teachers always used to ask me a question, either my mind goes blank. i just did not know what they said as i did not concentrate on what they said i think. I always remember in exams when im reading a question, i have to read it around about a 100 times for my brain to take it in. because my brain is too busy thinking about what i did yesterday or something like that. its just really hard for me. My whole lifes been a pile of crap and i've been depressed. my family never notice me to be honest. if it's not adhd. its gotta be something else.
I don't have an answer for you mate but i am the same at 43! I hear when people talk to me but forget to answer. You are not thick just misunderstood like me. I am going to search for a local ADHD support group, perhaps youi should too.
My son just turned 4 we have been under the hospital for about a year now and hes had eeg's and mri scans and still found no brain problems but he has been diagnosed with focal epilepsy due t the electricity being produced further in the brain, When he has a seizure his eyes roll leg and arm stiffen and he's a bit twitchy sometimes he can do 10 in a day then nothing for a few weeks. He is now taking a anti seizure drug called Carbamazephine and they are at bay so go back and pester your gp for cosultant referal! My son is also very fit and healthy in every other way. Good luck x
Dont worry i heard that you have to reach a sertan weight and height before a mucle in your brain triggers a period :)
My 16 month old daughter has just been diagnosed with a squint and we have been told that she could have surgery at any age but it would be just cosmetic and not repair any damage to sight, maybe a trip to the doctors for a referel to your local eye hospital may help.
My baby is 5 weeks old and he has a tight foreskin I have been given different advice I doctor said to pull it back, another said not to as it can cause damage to the oenis and another said he will need to be circumsized I'm not sure what to do , do you have any advice
Hi Nina. All babies have tight foreskins. It is natures way of keeping the penis protected and it works very well in the modern world when they have messy incidents! Clean the area well after soiling but don't pull it back. No need for circumcision either. The boy himself will try and pull it back when he is older and that is normal. In the meantime, enjoy your new baby. Take care.
my 9 year old daughter gets water infections all the time and has grade 5 reflux and kidney scaring and kidney damage, surgery has not helped with the reflux and the uti's wont go away,and she keeps leaking urine and has to use catherters.
Hi my daughter is 2n a half. She started to pull her hair out n eat it when she was between 14 n 16 months. I've been to the doctors and health visitor but had no help. I've had to pull strands of hair out Of her bum hole n she crys in pain. I've tried socks on her hands. Please Help as I'm at my wits end and don't know where to go next. Im more worried as to the damage it's doing inside her and also she has gawjus curly hair. Please help.
my mother in-law had this with her daughter she used to pull chunks out of her head. in the end she kept it very short until she found comfort in something else she had beautiful tight ringlets when she was going threw her hair pulling
The muscular ring at the tip of the foreskin can be enlarged by the use of a cream prescribed by the doctor. It will take only a few weeks, and will avoid the great damage that is circumcision. As my husband would tell you, your foreskin is a means of great pleasure for your whole life. Sadly, his foreskin was removed, and now he gets little pleasure from his penis.
My daughter has just turned two. She has been walking for approximately a year correctly and confidently but for the past week or so she has started walking on her toes. She does this all the time now. She fractured her lower leg in August 2011 and I was concerned that the toe walking could be as a result of this. I have tried to encourage her to flatten her foot when walking but this has not helped. Can you offer any advice to stop her doing this as I dont want her to suffer any lasting damage and would like this corected ASAP. Thank you.
It can never hurt to have a chat with your GP about your concerns so that you can both keep an eye on it or start correction methods if needed now, the younger its corrected the better chance of doing it in a non evasive manner.
Im 13 years old, im a girl and ive had these sort of white worms in my poo... I didnt really take much notice at the start but they kept apearing all the time... I even found some on my vaginal area going towards my lower bowl... I dont know if i should be worried but i hear they can go to your brain and stuff and im a really panicy person/: what can i do or what can i take to get rid of them, im panicing so much... I feel hungry but also sick constantly and their worse when im on my period and my vagina gets really itchy ( ive never scratched there tho, its vile) but im scared, i wanna know what too do.. Ive had them for 8 months now/:
hii ur like me im 13 i have my periods my vagina always gets itchy and i relised the worms in the toilet i was looking at my poop and there i see worms moving they are white and the size of my pinky nail and im scared i dont know what to do
8months! Wow.. When i had worms i couldnt stop thinking about it i wanted them out of me! If your embarrased to tell someone.. Try telling someone you can trust? Your mum probably? Just say ' mum i think i need some medicene for worms because i have saw them when i go to the toilet' an she should naturally get you some medicene/tablet :) get rid of them soon tho dont be embarrased
