Hi,

I can understand your apprehension,

I would recommend that you consider taking this online test

https://www.psycom.net/adhd-test

This should help you get some idea about whether you have ADHD or not,

and in any case the testing helps you get proper treatment, so there is nothing to be scared about it either,

Warm regards & stay safe,

Let me know if you need more information,

I took the quiz and it said there's a strong possibility I have add/adhd, do I just book an appointment with my doctor to look into further?

Hi,

That is something that you must do,

You certainly need this to be confirmed by your doctor, you can share the results with your doctor as well, this may help them too,

Warm regards
