The head shaking could be due to neurological activity secondary to hypoglycemia.  Early in the course of the disease Parvo tests can be negative.  There are also several other viral diseases that cause bloody diarrhea and vomiting (usually less severe than parvo). 
Regardless of the cause your dog needs aggressive supportive care--intravenous fluid therapy, intravenous antibiotics and anti-emetics (anti-vomiting) immediately.
Your veterinarian will want to repeat the parvo test as well to completely rule out parvo.

Either way it sounds like your dog is sick and needs help right away.  Sounds like it may be a seizure.  I would go to another vet and get a second opinion right away, before it is too late.  Good luck to you and your dog.
