Evidence that Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is caused by too much cellular ATP?

The question is pretty simple — it's just a theory that I remember my biology teacher mentioned long ago and for years now I've wondered about it without ever asking.Some people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) report "energy bursts" with the feeling of needing to explode while sitting still. Further, they report that movement, like vibrating the legs, can help suppress this feeling.Is there any reason to think that symptoms like these might come from too much ATP inside cells?
