Hello,

Excessive thinking, easy distractions and disturbed sleep could be due to anxiety more commonly than ADHD. How is your mood generally? Do you feel low or sad? Do you feel anxious all day?

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shubham Mehta, Psychiatrist
