If you experience ADHD, you might find that you:
- have difficulty concentrating
- tend to fidget
- are forgetful
- sometimes make impulsive decisions
This isn’t a complete list of all symptoms, but they are some of the symptoms which are also common in mental health problems.
Lots of the main symptoms of ADHD are things that impact your behaviour, mood, and thinking. So, you might be misdiagnosed with a mental health problem (for example, depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, or a personality disorder).
