Re: Questions about so called SCT?

Does that mean only people who have ADHD-Predominately Inattentive could possibly have so called SCT?

(I have more questions, but I will start with this question)

I only have one of the five hyperactive symptoms, but I have all four of the
impulsive symptoms.

I have all nine of the inattentive symptoms. I don't have an official diagnosis
but I would guess I'd be considered combined presentation.


There seems to be sixteen symptoms listed for SCT. I have at least half of the
symptoms on that list ... but I don't know how many I had before I developed
Fibromyalgia and a lot of the symptoms overlap between FM and SCT.

Originally, SCT was thought to be restricted to about 1/3 of the inattentive subtype of ADHD and being apparently incompatible with hyperactivity.

But new research showed that SCT is also seen in some with the combined or hyperactive-impulsive subtype and in individuals who do not have ADHD at all.
