Like all ADHD traits, it is probably normal in early childhood to a certain degree?

I used to slide my arm back and forth, back and forth against the wall, I found the noise soothing, (same when my mom vacuumed back and forth, back and forth).

I also found it comforting lay a certain way to put my shoulder in a certain place, with my hand/arm stuck straight up in the air until I fell asleep. (I never did remembered my arm/hand falling down)(not sure how long it was actually up there after I fell asleep?)(when I was young I wondered/guessed if it had something to do with more blood flow to my brain)

In both examples, moving against the wall and fixed not moving, my arm/hand was “standing” up?
