Symptoms Of ADHD Are Mental Disorders?
Good afternoon, introduce me, Dimas ari aji 26 years old. I want to ask about the symptoms of ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). This symptom seems like I often experience … If it’s true that I have ADHD, how do I treat it … I have excessive anxiety, often nervous, and often tense excessively, juka meet with new people, hard to concentrate, hard to make friends, but I tend to be quiet, often forget … Is this a mental disorder? Thank you for your concern
Good evening Dimas, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. ADHD or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, as the name suggests, is a mental disorder that causes sufferers to have difficulty concentrating and is also hyperactive or unable to sit still for long periods of time.
But what you are experiencing is not ADHD, because ADHD is a diagnosis of mental disorders for children, which can be detected for up to 12 years and more often than not since toddlers. ADHD can also attack adolescents and adults, but that is only if the person has indeed been affected by ADHD from a young age whose disease persists. So far there has never been an ADHD sufferer as an adult who has no history of ADHD since young.
So that your condition is anxious, nervous, often overly tense and so on, it is likely to occur because of other conditions, which can actually be normal or not. The possibility is still unclear because there is still no objective measurement of how 'excessive' you call excessive, how often, how difficult, the point is about the intensity of your complaint.
Because indeed, anxiety, nervousness, difficult to make friends, is often also found in normal people, especially those who do have introverted personalities (prefer to be alone, not like crowds), or who are too perfectionist, like because he wants everything to be perfect , he became afraid of failure, too much in thinking about the consequences and make it anxious, tense and nervous excessive.
Therefore, we suggest that you consult your psychologist or psychiatrist first regarding your condition. It takes an objective examination from an expert to measure the severity of the complaint you are experiencing and whether it is an abnormality or not. If it is indeed a disorder, the disorder can be a social phobia, a phobia of crowded places, a total anxiety disorder, panic disorder or so forth. Handling later can be in the form of drugs or therapies that are appropriate to your situation.
In the meantime, try to train yourself to get to know yourself better, why are you nervous, anxious, and feeling everything you feel. Ask yourself when you first felt it and what could make you more comfortable. This information will be very useful for you to convey to a psychologist or psychiatrist who examines you later. So, hopefully answering your question.
