Rob, you can exhibit ADD like symptoms secondary to a brain insult. Secondly, it is possible you have ADHD or ADD and were never diagnosed.  However, if you don't have ADD or ADHD by the age of 17, than in answer to your question, you cannot develop the primary disorder later in life. 

Hi Rob,

It might be possible if you have suffered some sort of head trauma..

Otherwise, you can only go misdiagnosed since childhood...

No, but it can persist into adulthood. There are tons of information about ADD. Seek and you shall find.

We,re all waiting in line to die so let,s make the best of life.
