Possibility of adhd

Patient

Q: I really believe that i have ADHD. My brother has had it and my parents never took me to see if i did. Im now a 19 years old freshman in college. Ever since the 5th grade it has been difficult for me to concentrate on anything and i find when i try to study notes or read textbooks the information doesnt stick. This has resulted in poor grades and it is really hurting my grades in college. I feel if i dont do something i will fail out of college. i know you cant diagnose if i do or not but id really like an opinion from a doctor so i talk to my parents about it.
