Maybe : If you are asking yourself that question, it is likely that you suffer from some degree or form of work or academic dysfunction related to your ability to focus. You need to talk to your doctor; nothing will surprise him or her, so simply ask. Beware that other conditions (depression, anxiety) can present like ADHD, so you will likely be referred to a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist.
