Since the Bristleworm is living and from what you desribe you have either a pod population or a worm population, it may not be as bad as it seems.
check your water parameters and get back to us.

Ouch, there is your problem...ammonia. its way high. Your biological filter is overwelmed. Remove what is left of the shrimp and see if it goes down. If not, start doing small water changes and see if that helps.
