ADHD Misdiagnosis: Why Might It Happen?

Because many of the symptoms of ADHD overlap with those of many other conditions, including sleep disorders, misdiagnosis can occur, reports Medical News Today.

  • difficulty in concentrating

  • restlessness

  • daytime sleepiness

  • decrease in performance at school or work
