Response from Dr. Wohl
It is very difficult to say what is going on with your husband. He should really see his clinician as soon as possible to make certain that whatever is going on is not related to what led to his hospitalization, his medications or another problem such as an infection or depression. If possible, call your clinic and get help.
Also, I hope you have been tested and are getting the help and counseling you need given all that is happening. DW
