Shivering/Shaking

I'm unsure of what to do here.

I've taken my dog to the local vet, and they have found nothing wrong with him as far as any illness.

He's barely been eating, hardly drinking water, and has been acting very weird and skittish lately and seems very anxious. The only thing that I can think of, is that my roommate left to go back home a couple weeks ago.

The thing is, this behavior from my dog didn't happen until the last 3-4 days. Half of the day, he is shivering/shaking uncontrollably. Usually, if he ever starts shaking like he is, it means he has to go to the bathroom. I've been taking him out after I notice the shaking, and he barely, and i mean BARELY even pees. Yesterday, he didn't go #2 for a full 24 hours. He's not really even close to my roommate like that, but he is VERY emotionally attached to people, and will pee out of excitement for not seeing someone he's met only once or twice, or even hasn't met at all.

It seems to be super random. Earlier, he was very perky and upbeat and wanted to play all day. I ran around with him and took him to the park and played fetch. Now, after I got home from being out, it's almost as if he's cowering and scared when I called his name to come in my room and play, and again started with the shaking. My vet can't explain it, and I can't find any reason behind it myself. Any information would be welcomed, thanks!

From what Ive read shaking is adrenalin leaving the body. Some breeds are prone to shaking. So anything that causes adrenalin can cause it. Some are anxiety, excitement, pain & cold. If the shaking/trembling turns to shuddering its a real concern. It can even be a panic attack. Check your dog all over for sore bits. If it ceases with pain releif that is another indicater that its pain. Some dogs find it difficult to regulate their body temperature & shake when there's a sudden change from hot to cold. Also being overtired seems to cause shaking, as its the nervous system, so make sure after excitement is a little quiet sleepytime. Miniature fox terriers, pinschers, pomeranians & chihuahuas are ones that will often shake, there are others too

Time for a second opinion at a different vet. That type of behavior is not normal. To me, who got her vet license form a Cracker Jack box, that sounds pain related and as if he may have a pinched nerve somewhere, or maybe a slipped disc in his back.

Ask a vet about Addison's, sounds an awful lot like the symptoms pepper showed, we attributed them to anxiety.

My dog is very noise sensitive, she's had several shivering/shaking episodes where there's been a noise trigger but also quite a few where there was no discernable trigger- to my human ears at least. My vet thinks there might be a noise she's hearing that I'm not, a distant lawn mower or storm or even a plane or something. Not sure if she just gets so nervous she trembles or what, but she's large, 65lb pittie/lab mix so it's not a breed thing.
