Experts' List of the Top 5 Women's ADHD Symptoms

ADHD is often misdiagnosed in women, especially when they are present with mood disorder or anxiety. As a result, signs such as not paying attention and struggling to maintain focus can be overlooked in the diagnosis process. ADHD should be taken seriously due to its impacts on ability to learn, work, and form interpersonal relationships. It is important for healthcare providers to have an eye out for ADHD symptoms in female patients who may have been overlooked previously.

•3,2 percent of women between the ages of 18 and 44 have ADHD, although it is frequently neglected or misdiagnosed.

•A mental health condition known as Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is characterized by trouble focusing, impulsive behaviour, and restlessness.

• Common signs of ADHD in women include not paying attention to details, trouble focusing and listening to others, being easily distracted and forgetfulness.

• Having undiagnosed ADHD can lead to struggles such as running late, forgetting appointments or misplacing objects which can lower self-esteem over time.

• Women with ADHD may be misdiagnosed with other mental disorders such as mood or anxiety due to gender-specific symptoms like inattentiveness rather than hyperactivity.

• Men are diagnosed with ADHD nearly twice as often as women. In males, symptoms of the disorder include difficulty concentrating, hyperactivity, learning difficulties, and inappropriate behaviour.

• The best way for an accurate diagnosis is through seeing a healthcare provider trained on adults with the disorder who will assess multiple psychiatric conditions beyond just ADHD before treatment begins via psychotherapy or medication - both of which help manage the condition effectively while having support from family members and friends
