Brief Answer:
Its NOT ADHD

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.

Its NOT ADHD as ADHD occurs in young boys who cannot sit still in classroom. It is not a diagnosis for menopausal women.

YES it can be menopause or thyroid disorder.

Get a thyroid scan and if its normal then you need to be started on hormonal therapy as then its definitely menopause.

Also these are not symptoms of parkinsons or myasthenia gravis.

You might be having difficulty in speech and inability to write due to extreme lack of energy.

When did you go to MAYO as you have written that you have not been to a doctor for 12 years ?

You need to consult a doctor now as its difficult for me to assess your neurological signs online and also you will need a prescription for the hormone therapy.

Feel free to consult me directly
