Checkup: Not sure what the spot is due to. The peripheral nerves run in a linear pattern along the back. The area you are describing corresponds to the Thoraic or mid back vertebra. The dizzy part is most concerning. Could be getting shingles, herniated disc. vestibular involvement due to a URI. See a Doctor for checkup.
