Help! my dog shaking/Back? hiding

I took my dog to the vet after intermittent shaking and they found nothing wrong with him. Then a few days ago he began shaking constant and hard. But he is not having a fit.

I took him again to the vet- nothing.
Soon I discovered his back hurts badly. The vet offered rimadyl and relaxants.

After a long sleep he seems to be ok then he wants to take a walk so I take him out for a little walk to do his poddy and back home.

He likes to be under the bed but as soon as I sit down by him he gets into my arms. I think it must be his back and I hope it is not some organ. But I think it is his back because he is very tender. I just put some arnica gel on his back for the pain. Anyone have suggestions. The worse thing is that we are suppose to travel in 4 weeks on a long plane trip to a new home in the Middle East. It's a new job and a new home but the plane trip is long. Although I guess it would keep him still. thanks for help <edited out personal email>

If they haven't done it yet, I would ask for a full blood panel, and get a copy of it and also look for things out of the range.

There might be a number of things that can cause this, including pain and inflammation, but so can goofy glucose levels (do fast for the the test), or electrolyte imbalances, and I'm sure other things too.

Dogs with prostate infections can also appear to have back or abdominal pain. So a urinalysis might also be helpful.
