Is racing thoughts and ADHD symptom?

I have something called 'racing thoughts' it is hard to describe the sensation really. But it's like if you had various fragments of music and voices all playing simultaneously along with images or video like motions that pervade you're consciousness and they play in loops often of the time.

I have had this for years and didn't know there was a term for it until recently, so is this one of the many symptoms of ADHD?

Like you have a hundred different radio stations on at the same time?

Yes this is adhd. I only say that because you gave a very classic description.

Re: Is racing thoughts and ADHD symptom?

It seems to be more common in Hyperactive and Combined types. I've seen a lot of Inattentives here over the years who don't have what some of us affectionately call "brain chatter." And sarahsweets is right - it's a feature of bipolar, too.

It's not the same kind of self-talk/voices in your head that's experienced with severe OCD or schizophrenia - the thoughts aren't necessarily directed at you, and even the self-deprecating line of conversation that might be going on isn't as insistent or commanding. It's not entirely random, but it's multiple concurrent thoughts that flow into one another and don't necessarily have anything to do with one another, and they don't ever stop.
