Tourettes like behaviour

I have noticed that I have difficulty controlling what I say and often say things that I know I should have kept to myself. I seem to have lost a filter.

It gets me into trouble with my family and I am worried that I will say something inappropriate at work.

Is this part of Parkinson's or am I just a grumpy old man?


Hi Woolly

Might be possible side effects of meds maybe?  DA's like Ropinirole can cause impulsive behaviour.

Or alternatively it might be the fatigue and tiredness we're prone to with PD making you less tolerant.  I work in IT Support and have noticed that I get annoyed much quicker than I used to.....  much to the amusement of my colleagues as I vent my frustration either by eating my stress ball or head butting my monitor in exasperation.
