I guess I have been very lucky, My GP diagnosed me on the spot…she asked me the 20 some odd standard questions and was pretty sure I had it. She lined me up with a psychiatrist who did the full blown testing and sure enough I am a classic ADDer. There is little to no teaching about ADD in medical school, so don’t blame them, just get yee to a psychiatrist. Even then there will be doctors who don’t fully understand the condition. Of course I am also very lucky in that I am a Canadian and this sort of thing is covered…
