I have to say I totally agree with this statement. About a year and a half ago, I rapidly went from quick-brained youth to slow-brained depression and sluggishness. In addition, I developed severe migraines and started gaining weight. One neurologist tried to diagnose me with ADD and labeled my migraine symptoms (we did not know they were migraines at the time) as symptoms of health-related OCD.

I rejected the ADD dx as I had never had it previous to that time; I think that's the clue about these things -- did the symptoms come on suddenly or have they always been there? A true developmental disorder like ADD should at least have _some_ symptoms in youth.

And while I _do_ have anxiety, it has never been about health concerns. I developed health concerns after untreated hypothyroidism caused health problems. It's a laugh, isn't it?

Looking back at it, I'm surprised that nobody ran a test to see how my t4/t3 levels were at the time. I guess sometimes you have to be your own dr.
