Be aware of the adult ADHD signs and symptoms

Recommend to others!

It is generally thought by general masses that ADHD is a kind of condition that affects just the children. It is a fact that ADHD affects kids but it is imperative to note that a large portion of children who suffer from ADHD carry the same condition in their adulthood as well. But the symptoms of adult ADHD are not so pronounced and known. They are in fact present and thus needs to be carefully understood in order to control the condition of ADHD. The adult ADHD symptoms don’t appear just out the blue. The condition is not one of those in which you catch flu one day and after a couple of days, it is gone. Well, ADHD in adults is there since childhood but the condition is not properly diagnosed oftentimes.

Some of the adult ADHD symptoms include:
  • Hyperactivity: Although this condition is the most commonly found in children, it reduces with age. This way, a large number of people laid stress on calling it attention deficit disorder instead of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. But it cannot be ruled out that a considerable amount of adults suffering from ADHD do highlight signs and symptoms of hyperactivity.
  • Substance abuse: People affected from ADHD generally become the substance abusers. Aside excessive drinking and smoking, they even indulge in taking drugs.
  • Inactiveness: Adults having ADD ADHD might lose their path in the middle of some conversation and often wander to some unrelated topic. They may even appear to get bored easily and have difficulty maintaining and/or making eye contact along with interrupting people who are indulged in some conversation.
  • Impulsiveness: Kids who face attention deficit hyperactivity disorder are generally impulsive and so do and say things without giving a second thought. But the case is not identical with adults. While even the adults remain impulsive, their focus moves from mere saying to actual acting. In fact, the adults are not able to control actions and thus end up in drinking, gambling and doing other offensive things.
Last but not least, people who show abnormal social incompatibility may even be facing the problem of adult ADHD. The ADHD affected patients often find it really problematic to maintain their personal relations. And as a consequent, separation and divorce are the last resorts open in front of them. These people cannot even make friends for long and thus face difficulties at every walk of life.
