In brief: See Dr.

There are some generic on-line questionnaires, but best to see a dr. Most neurologists or psychiatrists can evaluate a person for adhd.

Will likely has nothing to do w/ it. Many things can be distracting - family, social, school or work problems, taking on more than is possible to do, many other possibilities. ADHD is 1st seen in childhood. If symptoms develop later it's probably something else. We are taught that we should be able to "multi-task." Term comes from computers. They cannot without 2 or more processors. We only get 1.

Psychologists can assess for ADHD also, in addition to Neurologists and Psychiatrists. Best to see someone who is skeptical and does not automatically think it may be ADHD before assessing you.
