The only real advice I can give you is to take him to the vet for a thorough examination (Heart/Lungs, and bloodwork) That is the soundest advice I can think of, and if you could manage to find the cash to do that, one way or another....it would be a wise move.

However, it is just possible  this could be what is called "Reverse Sneezing". Google "Reverse Sneezing You Tube" and you will come up with videos of dogs with this. Is what happens to your dog anything at ALL like this?
Each dog does this in a slightly different way, and just sometimes it can upset them a bit when it happens. My dog (very fit and well by the way, generally) -gets this from time to time, and it scares her a bit when it happens. I don't make too much of a fuss, but calm her by saying nice things (not sounding at all scared for her) and stroking her to calm her down. It passes off in a minute or two. It doesn't happen often, but occasionally. She is always just fine afterwards.
No-one seems to know what causes this! Apparently it is harmless and doesn't affect the dog's health.

It's very possible/common for dogs to experience seizures periodically throughout the day, which do not harm them. Although my dog hasn't experienced any, I have read up on it. Google it, and hopefully this information helps you out. Best thing I can suggest is making sure your dog eats healthy and gets lots of exercise. A check up at the vet is probably a good idea. Good luck.
