It would appear as though something in your apartment has changed. How old is the dog? Does he act scared when not at your apartment? Have you had other animals in your apartment? Have you changed cleaning chemicals? Have you had new friends in the apartment? Did you spill something on a carpet that the dog can still smell?
The only time one of my dogs got scared and shook and hid was once when I got really mad. I wasn't mad at him but my mood was foul. When I noticed he was shaking I called the vet. After talking for a few minutes the vet told me to calm down because the dog was reacting to my mood. I did and he calmed down. I never let myself get that angry around any of my animals again.
Distract the dog instead of consoling it. Creating "safe spaces" and overly pitying make them MORE afraid, less able to cope. Same is true of pets and people in that regard.
