My doctor doesn't believe i have ADHD

Posted by Mike1988 on June 15, 2010, at 14:47:46

to tell this story in the most accurate way possible i shall state some facts before hand, im a 22 year old male medical student whose currently in school and pulling of average grades
here we go , this whole story started 2 months ago when my professor assigned a paper to be done on a random psychiatric disorder. as i was in the process of selecting a topic i was keen on the disorder of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder as a topic for my paper.
as i was researching the disorder and reading more about it .it was really hard to ignore that i do fit the diagnostic criteria to the word, that's not to say that it wasn't noticed from friends and family that i could be ADHD but i neglected that as a possibility. i was extremely hyper as a child and i did have some trouble focusing at school ,but with time it wasn't as extreme as it used to be. but i do have this feeling that i could be much better off if was treated with ADHD medication.

Now here's where my problem lies .
i think people might not take my ADHD seriously just because im doing fine in school and i might over exaggerate thing
but every fiber in my being knows that it could be the answer to my life long torment .
i such a case what would you suggest would be the appropriate way to address this .

by the way im not from the states but i might go there to better manage this .
