You might try things that calm him, Rescue Remedy in the water,  
Feliway spray, catnip (mine all prefer a plant or two or three so they  
can roll in it or have fresh snacks).  He is anxious and fearful and  
is picking up on your anxiety and your fear.  There are people on this  
list, myself included, who believe animal communicators can help.  If  
you are one of these, perhaps you should have one talk to all your  
cats but this lovely gentleman particularly.  You can put up an area  
for him to go out in (mine have dog kennels with toppers; one of them  
could be accessed by a pet door in a window and ductwork). So much  
depends on your situation.  RR, Feliway and catnip are relatively  
inexpensive and may do the trick.

Good luck.
