ADHD: Signs And Symptoms You Might Be Suffering From It!

ADHD: Signs And Symptoms You Might Be Suffering From It!

If you have noticed your child to be restless and anxious all the time, it might look cute as the child is highly energetic, but it could be a cause for concern at the same time. It is not normal and the child could be having ADHD that is attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. As the name suggests, it is a disorder with deficiency of attention and in which the child is always hyperactive.

ADHD is a disorder in which the symptoms usually show up before the age of seven. It is characterized by a group of behavioral symptoms that include inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness. The impact of these symptoms is felt extensively where his overall self-esteem is affected, be it at home, preschool or school, academics or extracurricular activities and in interpersonal relationships.

The most common symptoms, which are almost diagnostic of ADHD are:

  1. Inability to hold attention: The child's attention span is very short and it is very difficult to keep them engaged on one particular thing.
  2. Increased restlessness: The child would be extremely restless and gets distracted easily.
  3. Fidgeting: The child would be seen constantly fidgeting with his fingers.

The following are the less common ones:

  1. Learning disability is rare, but can happen. However, the good news is that it does not affect the child's intelligence.
  2. Sleep disorders
  3. Difficulty in following directions
  4. Poor executive functioning skills
  5. Disorganization, which can lead to poor motor coordination and impaired movements
  6. ADHD kids tend to forget things very easily and need help with coordinating movements
  7. The child suffering from ADHD could easily tire and/or feel lethargic with very low energy levels. This can lead to the child procrastinating things and not wanting to do things on priority basis
  8. These children also have difficulties with fine motor and cognitive skills and so there is delay in their overall participation in games.

While these are the pressing symptoms of ADHD, occupational therapy can play a significant role in managing the child in the following ways. As a first step, the caregiver should have a detailed discussion with the school staff and any other people with whom the child interacts significantly.

This will help identify areas that need support from an Occupational Therapy, which are the following:

  1. Support with gross and/or fine motor skills
  2. Support with improving handwriting
  3. Support with engaging in playing sports and games
  4. Support in engaging in social activities
  5. Improving sensory processing difficulties
  6. Improving visual perception
  7. Support in adapting to the environment
  8. Teaching strategies to participate in various social and academic activities

So, while an ADHD child is definitely a cause for concern, proper support from family can help manage the condition. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Pediatrician.

Stomach ache is not a usual complication of nephrotic syndrome. Give liquid caspa to her for a few days. If pain still persists then consult your nephrologist.

You are supposed to train your baby to take food like you do. It is like training baby to learn a langauge. Any way give her home made food after every 2 hours. Never force food or accept any undue demand to take food. Have patience child will demand or even snatch food when hunger is intence. Hunger is a natural reflex & no medicine is required to activate it.

I'm 27 year old mother if a nine month old baby girl from Bangalore. Baby has four teeth up and two teeth down, she almost bites me 3 of 5 times when breast feeding, it pains a lot and burns next time when fed. I'm afraid whether she will bite or feed, I tried in quiet room, properly latched her, but same us repeated. Please help me to solve this issue, when I reacted for it, she made a nursing strike for one day, which was more painful than that, please help me.

Please try offering semi-solid food. Breast milk alone is unable to meet baby's requirement as the baby grows. Not offering breast if your baby bites will be a negative reinforcement and she will stop biting you while feeding.

Hi, my son 5 and a half year old has usually cough throughout the winter and changing season. He also has a stuffy nose sneezing problem most of the times of the year. Last month his cough was so severe that he has an asthmatic attack. The doctors said its bronchial asthma. He was hospitalized. They nebulised him day and night. Now he is on levolin and budecort inhaler. I want a safe permanent treatment for his upper respiratory tract infection. Cough asthma rhinitis and swollen tonsils. Please help with homeopathy. I want to stop the inhalers.

Hello lybrate-user, You may use Homeopathic medicines for your son Shreyansh so as to get relief, 1) Syp Astha aid 5 ml twice daily before food 2) Blatta Orien Q 5 drops in 1/4 cup of water twice daily before food But as you ask for complete cure, please do visit a homeopath & ask him/her to treat your son Constitutionally. This method of treatment will not only treat his asthmatic condition or frequent respiratory infection, but his body as a whole. This is the perfect time to get him cured, if delayed it may be more difficult to get complete cure. So, pls don't seek for complete cure in internet forum alone. Thank you.

Its totally your choice , though the Indian academy of pediatrics recommend giving painful vaccine, but neither WHO or center for Disease control say that painful is better then painless. so i suggest you to go for whatever you are comfortable with.
