Not too sure what you mean when you say 'shake his head' but, I am currently treating my tank for Gill Flukes and how it was picked up was initially, my 3 Silver Dollars kept rubbing themselves along everything possible, plants, sand, driftwood, rocks etc. Then, everyone began doing the same.
Has your Dollar got any signs of white spots? If not, are there other fish in the tank? If so, are they exhibiting the same behaviour? If yes, I would guess Gill Flukes.
Alternately, my Dollars quite often get skiddish and seem to swim in some interesting ways. This could just be the case with yours.
Sorry I can't be more helpful, I hope your Dollar is ok and maybe someone else can give you more and guidance.
