I am 17-year-old and I think I have ADHD. All the symptoms on the internet match my symptoms and I struggle to go to school. I have not tested for ADHD before, but, I had it since childhood. I was very hyperactive as a kid but after COVID, I became quiet. I find it very hard to concentrate on my studies. I have tried numerous study methods but nothing works because I have an attention span of like 10 minutes. Please help.

Please do not make the internet your doctor. It will surely misguide you. You may have ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) but you do not have mentioned specific symptoms which can help me to diagnose it. You should try to follow the below lifestyle to deal with it, it will help you.
1. You should exercise daily for 30 to 45 minutes like at least going for a walk.
2. You should meditate for 20 minutes daily. Just sit in one place in a comfortable position and try to concentrate on your normal breathing, do not stop or force yourself to stop your thoughts, just let them be. It will help you to relax and increase concentration.
3. You should eat healthy home-cooked foods, and avoid junk foods. You must also drink enough water.
