he seems to be very uncomfortable he will sit then get up and walk around then sit. totally not his energetic happy loving self. when we apply pressure on his hind quarters he seems to react but no crying or whimpering.

Thanks for the further information,

This changes things a bit, what you may have been seeing could have been abdominal pain as could happen with indigestion. Now your dog has been sick things could settle down. Clearly your dog has been in pain and discomfort somewhere ...

If your dog does not settle down play it safe and have him checked out ...

Hello again,

I have been reading over your question and the symptoms you have described, none of it really rings true to any situation that I am comfortable with, accordingly I think it would be best to see a vet now if that is possible, better safe than sorry ...
