Every adult who has ADHD had it as a child. Some may have been diagnosed and known it. But some may have not been diagnosed when they were young and only find out later in life.
While many kids with ADHD outgrow it, about 60% still have it as adults and it can interfere with daily functioning.
Adult ADHD can lead to unstable relationships, poor work or school performance, low self-esteem, and other problems.
In adults, the main features of ADHD may include difficulty paying attention and concentrating, or hyperfocusing, impulsivity, disorganization and forgetfulness, and restlessness. Symptoms can range from mild to severe.
