OCD, ADHD or Both?

Hey there, this is my first post, nice to be here.

I've been diagnosed with OCD and got treatment (both medication and psychotherapy), however, there are some symptoms that won't just go away, some of them include:

restlessness
fidgeting
being unable to concentrate on tasks
being unable to sit still
trouble multitasking
poor planning
difficulty concentrating
difficulty studying or reading
trouble sleeping / restless sleep

I haven't told my doctor yet (got a visit tomorrow) that I've been experiencing extreme restlessness lately. I cannot sit still, read, work or even enjoy my time alone. I am restless all the time. Some of the symptoms I mentioned have been present since childhood.

I have obsessions as well, which is clearly OCD, but the symptoms I've listed above overlap with those of ADHD.

What do you think? Any feedback would be highly appreciated.

If ADHD, how easy is it to treat?
