Has your husband been examined by a neurologist since he developed this unusual behavior?
Yes. In a case like this, you must look at his medications first. Many meds, including narcotics like Dilaudid can affect cognition and behavior. Some can cause abnormalities in muscular tone and movement. His family doctor or a neurologist should go over all his medications with you and decide which ones may be causing or contributing to this problem. The good news is that if you can figure out which ones are responsible, he will improve upon stopping them.
