How does an adult get tested for ADD/ADHD? I think I definitely have some type of attention or focus issue but I don't know what and it's not like I was to call the doctor and tell them I think I have ADHD when I don't know much about it. What are the symptoms in adults?Answer Question

I should also add that I don't take medication for it. I tried some and hated the way they made me feel. I slowly learned meditation and other focusing techniques.
