Anyone else's ADD/ADHD get a lot worse within a few years?

I'm 22 and mine has gotten increasingly worse since high school. It started with what you'd expect; hard to concentrate on homework and school. Now I can't pass my drivers text, having trouble reading for more than a few minutes and I'm even starting to have a hard time socially. Help? :/

I don't know about mine because I'm in a bad situation in life. All through out elementary school, all my teachers thought I wasn't applying myself and my mom thought I had ADD. She was right but she had to drill a hole through the school's head for them to figure it out... But back on topic, some things come easy to me an other things don't. maybe you're the same way. in good with history and science and I'm bad at math and English. so maybe you're good at riding a bike but bad at driving a car......

I'm bad with cars AND bikes lol but I see your point. I can do music, I can write and I'm pretty decent at photography... but I can't do anything else. :/
Hope whatever you're going through works out!

Attention Deficiency Disorder or ADD as it is commonly known has been known to get worse over the years. This is especially so for patients who do not seek early treatment. You should see a mental health professional immediately so as to start the required treatment procedure. Visit http://psychcentral.com/addquiz.htm for more information.

HAHA yeah I got a 95... The reason we didn't treat it earlier is because I was diagnosed with bi polar disorder (which we are no pretty sure was actually just the ADD/ADHD) and so that took priority. When I did try to treat it, the drugs made me irritable so I stopped trying them. I'm thinking about trying again now that the mood stuff is died down a little.

Eat coffee beans or drink coffee. Caffeine doesn't actually give your energy it surprises it and it does give you a surplus of energy when it wares off but just eat more beans or drink some more. Me and my little brother have it.
