no problem hon. you may want to have him into a vet to make sure he isn't having any medical issues as well. until then- the most safe thing for you to do would to be to keep him indoors only and crate him until he's in to see the vet. (to keep him from spraying- line the crate with bubble wrap....if he tries to spray that once- he'll never do it again when it reflects back onto him. That should encourage him to stop marking in that small space- then you can gradually tackle other areas of the home. Good luck! Also you may try asking for help in the breeders section of tcs- i'm sure some of them could give you advice on how to curb spraying in kitties (as many of them have intact males that spray i'm sure. even though your guy is neutered- they might could give some tips
) good luck, i do hope you find the help you need. definitely consider allowing your kitty to become indoors only. it will cut down on his territorial behaviors (such as marking his turf when he's outside to detur other kitties) and should help calm him down a bit.
