Aloha! You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin
I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. The symptoms you've mentioned are important but aren't pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one disorder. They do sound serious enough, however, for me to recommend having Paco attended to by his vet at your earliest convenience. I understand that you didn't come to this site to be told to take Paco to his vet but that's the best advice I can give you at this time - particularly if Paco has been behaving in that manner for more than 24 hours. I, too, would need to perform a thorough physical exam on Paco including diagnostics in the form of blood and urine tests and perhaps imaging in the form of X-rays or ultrasound.
Please note that Motrin (ibuprofen) is toxic to dogs. Aspirin is safe at 10 mg/lb with food twice daily but I'd be more comfortable with your having Paco see his vet than Paco receiving aspirin for an undiagnosed disorder. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
