      You should call your dr. and explain the situation. they can give him something to calm him down. It is probably just due to the treatments. I took some steroids during my treatments that gave my high anxiety, I thought one day my wife had been in an accident, just because I couldnt get her on the phone. Dr. changed my meds and I calmed down.
      Hope he gets better, best of luck to you!

      Definitely talk to your MD about this. it could also be tumors in his brain causing this paranoid behavior. Nevertheless, they may be able to give him medications to help manage the paranoia and anxiety.

      Thanks everyone he is doing much better and seems to overcome the anxiety when he goes into a deep sleep. One day at a time.

      Maybe some relaxation exercises like deep breathing, guided imagery or progressive relaxation could help too? It will also help him rest better.
