Good Idea: Evaluation by a trained provider is the best and safest approach.Self diagnosis is not a good idea.

Might help: No one "has" to seek medical attention; and, at your age, new-onset adhd is highly unlikely. However, if you are having problems of some sort, seeking out professional services to diagnose the problem and recommend treatment would make a lot of sense. Start with your primary care doctor.
