Anyone with ADHD? Can't Concentrate Every Shot - 04-08-2019, 04:03 PM

I know a guy that used to be an amazing pool player, but in his older age, he can't concentrate on every shot. Just wondering if he might have ADHD or ADD. He's really not hyper-acdtive. If you have that, what is the medicine?

There is no cure for ADHD.

Not likely ADHD anyway, he should see his doctor.

I have about a 40 min attention span for pool, but it hasn't always been that way.

Have you thought about lsd?

No attention span here either - really have no desire to put in the work to play full speed.

Getting old is not ADD.

I changed the original to maybe ADD, because he's not hyper active like ADHD.

Something's going on with him. He misses shots he can make 20 times in a row. Just not concentrating and assuming he's got it.

More likely old age than anything. Nerves, eyesight, and balance aren't the same as decades ago.

And then, a statin pill for cholesterol, muscle fatigue and sometimes leg and ankle pain.

Then, blood pressure medicine, whether ARB, or ACE, will give you a bit of dizzyness or lightheaded feeling now and then.

So many reasons. What old timers play the game as good as they once did?

All the best,
WW

AOADD

Adult onset attention deficit disorder.

But he would need to be looked at by a doc. There are so many variables as to why one cannot concentrate, let alone concentrate on a game of pool.

wont play better but he wont care as much
about it.

THC helps me focus in practice - the opposite in competition.

Me too. My theory is that because mj can raise your blood pressure and effects your nervous system, I dont
handle pressure as well under the influence.

To make a diagnosis of ADHD, there must be symptoms in childhood; i.e., there is no such thing as adult-onset ADHD.
