I am a 62 year old man.I was diagnosed with PD 4 years ago. I used to be a really outgoing self confident person but in the 4 years since diagnosis and taking the prescrbed Pramipexole for 3½ years and also Madopar for the last 6 months I have lost all my self confidence. I feel edgy, nervy and a bit scared all the time.
I try to.avoid meeting people or going to social occasions. Completely the opposite of how I used to be. I just wondered if other PD sufferers have experienced a similar change in their personalities or is it just me. I can't figure out whether it's the meds or the disease itself or something else that is causing this. I would be grateful for any comments.
