What causes extreme anger and aggresive behaviour?

My husband has finally been enlightened to the fact there is a problem. He is 76 years old and has a problem with loud noises, often has outburst of anger, and feels as if people are putting him down every time they try to converse with him about some things. He feels that the Holy Spirit, since he is Christian, has revealed to him there is a problem. What kind of Dr. to see?

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The information that you have given about the behavioral problems that your husband is having is not enough to make a diagnosis. But from what information you have given it looks more like late onset psychosis and after seeing him we have to rule out other possible psychiatric illness. Its advisable you take your husband to a psychiatrist madam.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
