My dog will not sit still,paces back and forth,and whines...help.

My dog Rosie is 8 years old. I adopted her from the local animal shelter when she was a year old and was told she previously suffered from an illness called distemper. She fought off this illness as many unfortunately do not. Now, for the past 3-4 years she has these terrible episodes that seem to last for hours on end. These episodes consist of her paceing back and forth, jogging around in circles,its like she just cannot sit still! Even when I try to hold her and pet her she will uncontrollably twist and turn her body...as she does this she will ultimately come right back to me...you can tell she wants to be near me and wants to be loved an comforted but it seems impossible for her to calm down and stay in one place and relax. When she has these fits she will not eat,go outside,sleep,drink. She just seems to panic and whine. Ive taken her to the vet her blood tests are normal. Ive shown them video of her and they do not know what's wrong. I've tried several different medications...valium,trizadone,and Benadryl. Does anyone know what is wrong with my pet? Please help!
Please if you can find time...
Look up the video on YouTube:
what's wrong with Rosie?

That is the only way I can accurately portray what my dog goes thru constantly. Ive found that dog lovers and animal lovers alike often have the best advice in these matters. As you all know...I love her too much to let her continue to suffer like this but what if there is something so simple I can do to help her and fix this?

It would help if you copied the link to your youtube video of her and posted it on here. I tried looking it up and a ton of youtubes about Rosie O'donald came up, but i didn't see any about a dog.

From the sound of what you are describing it sounds like something neurological is going on and I'm wondering what an MRI would show up. I'm also thinking it might be seizures and wonder if anti seizure medicine would help

That behavior can be a sign of possible pain and or nausea. Since she did have distemper, it could also be a seizure of some sort, not all have them thrashing on the floor. Its not uncommon for distemper survivors to suffer from epilepsy at some level.

Want to thank all of you for ur responses.
I believe that you are correct about the seizures...she also has tummy problems.
Can I give her human medicine? Like for example...gabapentin or neurotin? In a very small dose? I don't have much $ to spend on a vet they are so expensive! I feel kind of ripped off as well since they didn't suggest these things at all. Anyway...if no human medicine can be used what kind of meds do u recommend? Anything natural or homeopathic? Home remedys? I appreciate all your help! Rosie does too!

my dog definately was not having seizures when she was acting hyper over the mouse & no you cant treat a dog for seizures without a professional diagnoses from a vet for that as it may not be seizures. Also you cant just give dogs human meds, it could kill them.

I know gabapentin can be given to dogs, as ours was on it for a period of time for pain relief. I would not advise doing that, however, without your Vets knowledge and OK, plus you need your Vet to establish the dosage of whatever medication he or she deems appropriate. Ours can have stomach issues, probably from the medication she is on for an auto-immune disorder, so she takes Pepcid AC, as recommended by her Vet, but the dose was established by her neurologist.
