My chihuahua, Emmie, has FOCAL epilepsy and without her phenobarbital, she has panic attacks. These show up as: she is resting in her bed, and suddenly she runs, tail between her legs, looking over her shoulder as if something is chasing her. Very disturbing to watch. She also has a lot of jerky motions that I don't know if they are related. She also will hold her head back and stare into the space! She will get into her bed and stare at the wall for awhile. Finally she lies down.

Sounds similar to what he does. For about a year he looks up at lights like he is seeing something. Very afraid of flying bugs like flys etc. Eye dr. many months ago said all looked good. I was thinking eye floaters like some of us people get, and how scary that would be to a dog or cat.
How do they diagnose Focal epilepsy?
How old is your chi?

Shaking, screaming, whining, trying to hide, nervous. Fire works can cause the same but not screaming.
