Top symptoms include:
- Trouble concentrating
Of course, everyone struggles with these symptoms, especially in this age of multitasking. But adults with ADD feel this way most of the time and have other classic symptoms such as procrastination, irritability, fidgetiness, and poor listening skills. These can create trouble for both relationships and careers. Researchers speculate a brain chemical problem may cause ADD, but they aren't exactly sure. But see your doctor if you recognize symptoms in yourself. If you do have ADD, lifestyle changes, support groups, and medication can help you gain control over your life.
