I would say there is some serious issues here and if his "therapist" and/or psychiatrist have not helped him, or given you a plan of action, then some thing is terribly wrong.

Have you sat with his Dr.s and explained what is going on??

This is not just "typical" adhd.

I would contact his Psychiatrist today and have a serious consult - - just you and his mother.

Take care,
-Kathleen

This behavior is not related to ADHD.

Please discuss this in depth with your son's therapist and psychiatrist.

Yes the therapist is just as confused. the psychiatrist really cant reply to the issue. He has been to a Gastroneurologist(sry for spelling) he had build up that he had to get released. he see them again next week. The therapist we are working with says he has never heard of this in kids his age. My work let me go home and be with him to try and figure stuff out. He did get better but didnt completely stop. now that I left again he back to it in full.
I agree with he comment that this isnt related to ADHD, I appreciate all the comments. I know this is more psychological for this web chat but I though I would give it a try. I'm giving everything i can a try. thanks Guys

What does your son say about it? Anything?

Is there something about the bathroom that feels dirty, uncomfortable, or unsafe to him? Does he have to share it with a lot of people?
