    I took the virtual quiz and the conclusion was that I do not have ADHD. I may not have the hyperactivity but there are some kind of inattention and restlessness that are similar to ADD. I’m wondering if there’s a mild ADD, not severe kind which doesn’t require medication (if it can be treated with mental training)? Or is ADD just one type for all regardless the degrees of each group of symptoms? Where can I find the specific information to get the proper testing and diagnosis? Thank you.

    A doctor………that’s the only way – and even then you might have to try more than one doctor to find one willing to stick with you until the truth, EITHER way, is discovered. Can your primary care doctor help, or perhaps refer you?

    There are other things that have similar symptoms, one danger of self-testing, I guess.

    I’m the opposite, I’ve maxed out on almost all tests – I had to answer yes to every question on this virtual test here, and I got 83 out of 90 on another I took.

    But then I always did quite well on tests………… not so sure that’s a good thing now, however …. hmmmmm….

    Amylazz, there are a wide range of symptoms that come under the umbrella of ADHD and we experience them to a greater or lesser extent at different times.

    Billd is right, you need to see a doctor to get a proper diagnosis, and don’t get discouraged if the first one you try is of the mindset that there is no such thing as adult ADD. Sadly there are a lot of them out there!

    Good luck. Let us know how you make out.
