What are the Symptoms of Adult ADHD?


Inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity are something adults often feel. Although it’s nothing alarming, it becomes an issue when they impair you from doing your daily activities. Persistence of this behaviour could suggest that you have  Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This condition affects your relationships, functioning at home, at work and overall, your quality of living.

Adult ADHD is recognised by symptoms pertaining to hyperactive-impulsive behaviour and inattention.

The main symptoms of adult ADHD that you might experience include:

  • Restlessness
  • Disorganisation
  • Trouble concentrating or focusing
  • Difficulty in completing tasks
  • Impulsivity
  • Mood swings
  • Trouble in coping with stress
  • A hot temper
  • Low tolerance for frustration
  • Unstable relationships

You May Not Know You Have ADHD

Everybody has some symptoms that may seem like ADHD sometime in their lives. If your issues only recently began or occurred only once in a while in the past, it is likely that you don’t have ADHD. It is diagnosed when your symptoms are severe, and cause problems in different aspects of your life. These are traceable back to your early childhood.

However, you may not be aware that you have Adult ADHD since it may simply seem that your everyday tasks are becoming more challenging. People seeking ADHD treatment in London may feel that they cannot prioritise or focus, which can lead to missing work deadlines and not remembering social plans or meetings. Moreover, you may find that you cannot control your impulses, ranging from mild impatience to swings in your mood and angry outbursts.

ADHD Treatment for Adults

If you are looking for treatment for Adult ADHD in London, you’ll learn that if you have ADHD now, then you did, in fact, have ADHD in your childhood as well, even if it wasn’t diagnosed. You may experience fewer symptoms as you get older, or you might still have significant symptoms when you are an adult.

A London Adult ADHD clinic can help in diagnosing ADHD in adults, but it is sometimes difficult. Some symptoms of ADHD in adults may seem similar to symptoms brought on by mood disorders or anxiety. You may also have more than one mental health issue in addition to ADHD, like anxiety or depression. You should see a London ADHD doctor or specialist if your behaviour is disrupting your life on a continuous basis.
