    Yes, I used to know that look. It meant I better keep my distance, and if possible, keep a chair or table between us! I think for my husband, part of it was the frustration of not being able to communicate what was bothering him.

    I too have had this, sometimes accompanied by a growl. If I talk to him gently and try to take his hand to reassure him I am rewarded by him shouting "go away" but gripping my hand so tightly I cannot get away. He is obviously very distressed and frightened and in a very uncomfortable place and it is heartbreaking to be unable to comfort him. When he comes out of it he seems aware he has hurt me and makes kissing noises. These episodes got worse and worse until his consultant suggested a low dose of respiradone of 1 mg daily. with this the behaviour has disappeared and he is much happier.
