What can I do about my dog who has been hiding under chairs and blankets shaking everyday for the last week.

I have a 1 1/2 year old Shiba Inu. He's usually a very calm easy going dog. Last weekend we were playing and all of a sudden he started yelping and went running down the hall. Since then he spends most of the day hiding under a chair, covers, couches....and he trembles and shakes. The trembling/shaking stops after about 20 minutes but comes back at different times through out the day. I took him to the vet 2 days ago. He was behaving the same way at the Vet's office. The Vet was concerned so he did a full check up and took a blood test. The Vet didn't find anything wrong at the check up and his blood test came back perfectly normal. He put him on some antibiotics and said my dog probably has an infection that should clear up. Funny thing is if I take him to the dog park he's all of sudden fine. Or if my wife and leave the house for a while and come back at night he's all perked up and happy. Then I'll take him for a walk and he wants to go right back home and dive under the covers...shaking. Any thoughts or suggestions as to how to deal with this? Thanks for your time.
