I never got a formal ADHD diagnosis, but constantly feel this lack of clarity in my thinking. I rarely can think on the fly, and need to say something out loud to myself to finally build clarity in my thinking. Is this a common symptom of ADHD? I generally am good with focusing, my brain just doesn’t operate very efficiently even when I’m 100% focused on the task at hand.

ADHD can take time to diagnose and a lot of different things can cause brain fog.

As a first step I would recommend getting a blood panel done - low Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Magnesium, etc. can all affect your processing.

Best of luck!

I for sure had this type of brain fog and being on Wellbutrin has really really helped with it - I actually feel present again and am able to compose my thoughts more intentionally! (I have severe depression/anxiety and moderate ADHD to clarify what I was trying to target)

The ability to think really fast on the fly is actually a typical sign of ADHD… great at being impromptu stuff but then no patience/motivation for something of a bigger scale. Talk to someone professional first. Also a book called driven to distraction and a YouTube channel How to ADHD are both great resources for you to explore!

Hmm this doesn’t really sound like it to me

Try taking the online questionnaires… to be diagnosed they will also ask you questions about your experiences at home or school during child hood. Inability to focus or not be distracted is what I struggle with most with ADHD and executive functioning struggles. I would speak with a professional before self diagnosing.
