Symptoms of Undiagnosed Adult ADHD

Symptoms of Undiagnosed Adult ADHD

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects both children and adults. While it is most commonly diagnosed in childhood, many adults struggle with undiagnosed ADHD symptoms that can negatively impact their daily lives.

In a nutshell, symptoms of adult ADHD include difficulty with organization and time management, impulsivity, forgetfulness, and poor attention to detail. These symptoms can make it challenging for adults to succeed in the workplace and maintain relationships. We will go through more symptoms of adult ADHD further below.

One of the most significant challenges with adult ADHD is that it is often mistaken for other conditions, such as depression or anxiety. Additionally, many adults with ADHD have learned to compensate for their symptoms and may not recognize that they have the condition.

If you suspect that you or someone you know may have adult ADHD, it's beneficial to seek a proper diagnosis. A healthcare professional can evaluate symptoms and rule out other conditions that may be causing the symptoms.

Do you think you have adult ADHD? 

Here are the most common symptoms of adult ADHD. Go through the list and establish whether you feel like you experience these symptoms on a regular basis.

  • Inattention: Difficulty staying focused and paying attention, easily distracted, forgetful

  • Hyperactivity: Fidgeting, difficulty sitting still, excessive talking

  • Impulsivity: Acting on impulse without thinking, interrupting others, impulsive behavior

  • Difficulty organizing and planning tasks

  • Difficulty following through on responsibilities

  • Difficulty with time management

  • Difficulty with verbal and nonverbal communication

  • Low tolerance for frustration or stress

  • Difficulty regulating emotions

It's important to note that not everyone with ADHD will have all these symptoms, and some people may have more symptoms of inattention than hyperactivity or impulsivity, or vice versa. A mental health professional can evaluate if someone has ADHD and rule out other conditions that might have similar symptoms.

Treating adult ADHD

Treatment for adult ADHD typically includes medication (such as Ritalin), natural remedies and lifestyle changes. Counseling can also provide tools for managing symptoms and building skills to improve daily functioning.

In addition to seeking professional help, there are several things you can do to manage adult ADHD symptoms:

  • Set specific, achievable goals
  • Break tasks down into manageable steps
  • Prioritize tasks and focus on one at a time
  • Use a planner or calendar to stay organized
  • Find ways to reduce stress
  • Practice good self-care, including getting enough sleep and exercise

While medication is often the most common form of treatment for ADHD, many people prefer to explore natural remedies as an alternative or complementary approach. Taking remedies or supplements that support brain functioning and focus has shown positive results in both children and adults with ADHD.

Good day Altaaz

Thank you for your interest at Feelgood Health.

To help with some of your symptoms I would like to recommend our Mood Combo Pack, MindSoothe and PureCalm which were formulated by our Clinical Psychologist to work together synergistically.

Here’s why these two remedies are recommended together:
- MindSoothe is an effective alternative to prescription anti-depressants. Taken regularly, this herbal remedy can help to balance brain chemistry and promote feelings of well-being, allowing you to go about your life feeling more positive, calm and relaxed.
- PureCalm is a concentrated extract of selected herbal ingredients traditionally known for their quick calming effect during times of stress and anxiety. Added to water or juice, this fast acting remedy provides on-the-spot calming relief when you need it.

Used together, PureCalm and MindSoothe provide you with a complete solution, balancing brain chemistry while soothing the nerves and reducing anxiety.

Hope you find the relief you are looking for soon.

Best regards, Gillian
