We're happy to announce the launch of a new tool here at WebMD that we think our members will enjoy -- WebMD Answers .
While community is a place to get to know your fellow members and experts on a deep and supportive level, sometimes folks just want to ask a question and receive an answer. That's what WebMD Answers is all about.
Do you know someone in Texas or elsewhere who is currently battling West Nile or has a family member who is? As we expand our coverage of the West Nile outbreak, WebMD would like to interview some of our members for first-person accounts on the disease.
If you know someone who might like to be interviewed or have information to share, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and put "West Nile" in the subject line.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is not limited to children -- 30% to 70% of kids with ADHD continue having symptoms when they grow up. In addition, people who were never diagnosed as kids may develop more obvious symptoms in adulthood, causing trouble on the job or in relationships. Many adults don't realize they have ADHD, leaving them mystified about why their goals seem to slip out of reach.

Best idea for help would be to check with your primary care doctor for recommendations and your insurance company. See who you are covered to go see and I'm hoping your doc can steer you in the right direction. Best of luck and health to you!View Thread
One of the hallmarks of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD ) is fidgety, restless behavior. That's why many kids with ADHD wiggle and squirm whenever they're asked to sit still for any length of time. To release that restless energy, kids with ADHD need to get plenty of exercise . Research is finding that staying active not only lets kids with ADHD burn off steam, but it also can help with issues such as:
lack of focus
poor social skills
When used along with traditional ADHD treatments such as stimulant medicines and counseling, regular fitness can have a positive impact on a child's ADHD symptoms .
