I've said it many times before, I'm not a veterinarian, so with that said I don't know what would cause this problem in your GSD, however I can tell you that if you're not happy with what your veterinarian told you (and I assume that your vet gave you that diagnosis) then I would encourage you and your German Shepherd to go see another vet right away and see if they've ever encountered this kind of thing before.
There are certain illnesses/conditions that this is a symptom of, shaking I mean, and I would discuss some of those possibilities with your vet as well or do some research online about them - which makes you more knowledgeable when you talk to your vet about these too.
Big tip: If you could video tape your dog whenever it "shakes every now and then he loses control" then that could be quite helpful to your vet also since chances are high that the vet may not get to actually see it happen while your dog is at the clinic for your visit.
Good luck with your German Shepherd and keep us up on what the diagnosis is. We'll keep you in our thoughts.
