Ok here is my delima I have one son who has ADHD and ODD. My oldest son does not although he does have ADD tendencies. I have noticed in the last few weeks/month that he keeps moving his hands at the wrist and his legs sometimes. I asked him why does it at first he said that it hurt but then he said that he felt he had to move them.

HI


I would definetely see a Dr. It could be ADHD, but it sounds alot like Tourettes. ALOT of kids with Tourettes are misdiagnosed with ADHD, and vice versa. OCD also comes ti mind,but I am not a Dr.


It could also be absolutely nothing, but it cannot hurt to check.

A child may HAVE ADHD, but it is not what they ARE. Never tell a child they ARE ADHD.
