I'm : I'm sorry to hear of your symptoms. Dizziness has many potential causes so here are few key follow-up questions. Do the body aches have any connection to the episodes of dizziness? Do you have fever, chills, or night sweats. Do you ever have vertigo (a hallucination of movement)? Do you have a rash? Have you suffered any back injuries or is your back pain related to any event that may have precipitated these symptoms? Have you seen a docotr and if so was any testing performed? Sorry for all the questions but your symptoms are associated with so many potential problems that more information is needed before any formal differential can be made.

Migraine?: Do the headaches pound? If so, it may be from a migraine attack. Migraine is worsened by skipping meals, irregular sleep habit, hormones, stress etc. See your doctor re. This.
