Possible ADHD? Really struggling

Patient : Hi I have been struggling with focus most of my life. I have never been able to pay attention since I was young I am starting to realize. High School I never was able to study much and my college years I survived school by staying up the whole night before a test. Should I look at getting tested and is that reason enough to try adderall or other add meds?(My bachelors was in nursing so I am aware of all different kinds of drugs) I am afraid to go see my regular doctor because I know them very well personally but I am really at a point where I am struggling a lot during my masters degree I can barely get anything done and I can't stop myself from procrastinating when I sit down to do something and work I can only stay focused for 10 min at most. I really need help. I have trouble getting out of bed in the morning and focusing on what needs to get done
Symptoms:  No focus or concentration
