Having one problem doesn't mean you can't have another. Why not talk with your doctor about that possibility?

In brief: Concentration
Lack of concentration or inattention is only one symptom of adhd.
Others can be disorganization, not finishing tasks, forgetfulness, misplacing things, overwhelmed with tasks, etc. Your doctor can reassess & give advice.
