Does anyone else with ADHD deal with sensory problems? I've been susceptible to senses for a while, but they've been especially annoying to deal with as of late. I'm not sure if it's connected to my ADHD or if it's something else.

    I also have sensory issues and, while I also have autism, sensory processing issues are a reported symptom of ADHD. Stimming helps me and I also have a set of headphones I wear in crowded stressful placesike airports that cut out a lot of background noise.

    Sensory processing disorder (SPD) can be a symptom or as a stand alone. It's more prominent in people with autism though.
