Yes, concussions can cause adhd like symptoms in people without the neurological disorder, and they can make adhd much worse for those who have it. But if you get adhd like symptoms from a concussion you can't typically treat it the same as if you just have adhd.

Can you explain the "3 things going on at once bit"? I never got diagnosed with ADHD but I can relate to your post so much that I'm wondering if I need to get tested!


decoy1985 t1_iyw1nvh wrote

Our brains are constantly in overdrive trying to scrape up the dopamine and noroepinephrine which we can't produce or regulate like normal brains. So we need a lot of extra stimulation. That can mean trying to do a bunch of things all at once, or watching a show while playing a video game and talking to someone, using a fidget toy while engaged in other things, etc.

It can also mean taking hours to fall asleep because your brain can't stop. It can mean being super distracted because whatever you're doing isn't stimulating enough (with adhd most things aren't because our brain lacks the necessary chemicals to generate that feedback) so your brain keeps going on a little adventure. When we do find something that interests us enough and provides that extra stimulation, novelty, etc we need to get those chemicals, we can become hyperfocused and obsessed. My mom thought I was deaf and got my hearing tested when I was 6 or 7 because I'd just be gone when I was in that mode. Wouldn't hear a word she said. It's common for us to go through hobbies constantly because we get obsessed for a short period, then the novelty wears off, and we can't get interested again, leading to one form of ADHD tax where we waste money on tons of supplies and tools, then a month later forget about them and never touch them again.

It also causes issues with working memory and short term memory, impulse control and executive function (either you can't stop yourself or no matter how hard you try you can't make yourself do something). ADHD can be debilitating. I was a disaster before I got help.

I got diagnosed at 32. I didn't ever consider it, because I didn't know enough about it, until a friend who had a degree in early childhood education recognized it and suggested I look into it. Once I read more into it it made sense, and especially once i went over all my old school records and my symptom history with the specialist. Getting diagnosis, therapy, and meds completely turned my life around.

It's worth at least looking into if you think you might have it.

‚‘brain fog from fibro‘ Would you mind explaining that further ?


ndaoust t1_iyz2ze5 wrote

Fibromyalgia causes "brain fog": you have a hard time focusing and your memory is unreliable. You find ways to cope but it never completely goes away.

Fibromyalgia also causes fatigue and outright pain, which can become unbearable if not medicated.

Thanks! I didn‘t know that and I wasn‘t sure Fybriomyalgia was meant with „fibro“ (+ made me listen up). thing is, I believe that I‘ve got fibro. Now even more… It‘s complicated bc on top of that and a few other things I was going through a burnout phase for the last 9 months.

My ‚medication‘ is Buprenorphine for now but I think I need to see a doctor again…


ndaoust t1_iyzcffp wrote

For sure, it's not a diagnosis that's handed out lightly.

I definitely recommend seeing a doctor once in a while, as fibromyalgia sufferers respond differently to the variety of appropriate medication, and can even respond differently as years go by. Getting the right medication is life-changing.


[deleted] t1_iyzdg4j wrote

Got it. It‘s really weird when you‘re unwell all the time with random aches and all that. On top the dizzyness and all. I think I‘ve left 20% of my brain capacity on the way along so far. Sidenote: have tried microdosing psychedelics, not only for the contentration side of things.

Which category of meds are you talking about explicitly? From painkillers to anti inflammatory meds, there is a broad variety.


ndaoust t1_iyzfj9o wrote

Broad variety, as you say, and it depends on what's available/legal and what insurance covers. But I'm no medical specialist, I simply helped someone close cope through every step, from the initial confusion at their body, through the lengthy misdiagnoses, and trying different medication over years. This summer they finally found a great fit, enough to prompt the occasional spontaneous "I'm feeling so well", when they realize that at times all symptoms are gone.

I wish it can happen to you.

strangeattractors t1_iywqsco wrote

PS I looked at Neorhythm and it looks ok, but it's very limited, as it only records EEG on one area of the brain, similar to the Muse device. Unlike the Muse, since the Neorhythm isn't on Amazon, it doesn't have any reviews. In neurofeedback, the goal is to look at 19 channels of EEG to see which area of your brain is imbalanced, and then train that area of the brain accordingly. In ADD/ADHD, it is often corrected at the top of the head using a point called Cz, but it could be due to other reasons, such as too much slow wave activity at the front left of the head and not enough fast wave (required for activation/focus). The point is without a scan of the whole brain you won't know.

Nope. The mechanism by which antidepressants work is unknown, but still used in therapy.

They can improve mood and emotion, although this process isn't fully understood. Increasing levels of neurotransmitters can also disrupt pain signals sent by nerves.

Yes and no. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of drugs that can be used to induce anesthesia. All of the common intravenous drugs that I can think of have well-studied mechanisms of action that at least mostly explain their effects. The volatile anesthetics (ie those that are vaporized and inhaled) are not as well understood. Volatile anesthetics were also the first meds used to induce surgical anesthesia (ether), so it's somewhat surprising they have eluded our understanding for so long. We know a lot about the effects these drugs have on different organ systems, and there are some studies that shed light on different mechanistic elements, but overall their mechanism remains controversial and unclear

The biggest problem with Neuralink is that all the marketing and attention goes to a company that isn't particularly remarkable. It's a very exciting field that can make huge improvements to patient quality of life. Neuralink is not the company to pay attention to - look into what the academic labs are doing.

Equating targeted stimulation protocols to having a seizure reeks of ignorance of the field. Especially when brain stimulation has been an approved treatment strategy for Parkinson's and Essential Tremors for, at least 2 decades now.

Apparently this works at some specific wavelengths and not others.

That would suggest to me, the mechanism is some transfer of energy from the laser to specific molecules in brain cells. The article mentions this, and suggests those molecules may be in astrocytes, a type of cell that seem to have a role in supplying energy to other cells.

I'm making an effort to understand how these three approaches compare to what's been found at Stanford and led to developing the SAINT protocol. Considering that Dr. Nolan Williams team found that most durable effect comes from short, repeated (successively over a 3-day period) TMS on the left DLPFC, specifically targeting the anterior cingulate. It would seem to a layperson that tDCS is the sledgehammer and r-tMS is the scalpel. Of the home-use options, none of the current tech can target that spot other than TMS, yet still seem to be effective. My question is do you think tDCS/tACS is as effective as tPBM? Would you guess it's 50% as effective? 95% as effective?

Possibly the laser activated neurons that has high fear or pleasure thus there is a change in fear levels, causing stronger memory in order to avoid the imagined fear or to make the imagined hope come true.

Using shorter wavelength has no effect since it cannot penetrate the skull, while using laser on the other side has less chance to activate any high pleasure or fear neuron since right handed people will have more intense memories associated with their right hand and in turn, the neurons are formed there.

So if such is correct, by having the participants be all left handed, the laser should have no effect on the right prefrontal cortex.

davereeck t1_iyxm6am wrote

Laser light (or light from some LEDs) is emitted at a specific wavelength. The sun emits light at all (well, many different) wavelengths. For this effect to work:

  1. the light must be inside a 'window' of wavelengths that our heads are more transparent to.
  2. it has to be at a certain level of power - too little, no effect. Too much, no (or bad) effects.

Lasers and LEDs are a way of getting to those two goals. Other light emitters may work as well but are harder to control (e.g. the sun).

AgnosticStopSign t1_iys8rti wrote

Heres my 2 cents. You can take it or leave it.

The entire universe and everything in it is vibrating. The frequency of the laser is harmonic with the human body’s frequency.

I know this is true, and let me explain to you by first starting with frequency.

Frequency is interchangeable. As such: light, sounds, and emotions can all be expressed on a equivalent frequency scale. I.e. 120hz is a color on the electromagnetic scale (idrk just spitballing), 120hz is a sound pitch thats F# (idrk just spitballing) and also, when you hear or see that frequency, it makes you feel X.

This is why many fast food restaurants use red and yellow, many modern movies resort to an increasing pitch sound to simulate tension (sadly, as previously movies used acting to do that, but i digress).

Now we are well aware of this, and we even have science fair experiments on it. Theres both a visual and audio version. Both involve planting seeds and exposing them to different colors (red, green, blue, etc) or music (classic, country, rock, etc) and comparing their growth.

They do indeed affect growth.

At a deeper level, we are 70% water, and so the frequency that is most harmonic with water would be most beneficial to us.

Also, frequency creates form, as if you put sand on a speaker, each frequency will create its own shapes. This could hold key to the mechanism behind whats occuring

Edit: sound = form video

light affecting growth in plants video

No reason to think this wouldnt apply to us as well


datnetcoder t1_iysmjfe wrote

Absolutely hilarious that you have this whole nonsensical thought process based on frequency, and your example of a “color” on the EM “scale” (the word you’re looking for is spectrum) is 120hz. Visible red light is about 430 trillion Hz… cracking me up that you said one hundred and twenty lol. You’re on the right order of magnitude on sound.

Re: planting seeds - the light experiments make perfect intuitive sense as photosynthesis is deeply sensitive to EM frequency. The sound experiments are interesting and less intuitive but the gist of it is that sound is a mechanical stimulus.

Your claim that the frequency that is most harmonic with water is ridiculous in the way you are presenting it, but that said, the wavelength of the laser used was critical in the results observed. But literally nothing to do with the “harmonic frequency” of water.
