I've been having pain lower right back. Traveling down buttocks an leg. Around to abdomin. Headaches. Dizzy spells. Nausea right shoulder an neck pain?

Not anatomical: Widespread symptoms would suggest more of a systemic process than a specific anatomical issue (ie not a disc herniation causing all of your symptoms). I would focus on blood work rather than imaging studies as part of your work up.

Evaluate Neck: If you are not improving have your doctor order a cervical spine mri. Many times a herniated disc in the neck can cause arm pain especially if you have not improved with the medications and physical therapy. If it is a herniated disc you may need evaluation from a spine specialist to determine what other options might be needed (injections, surgery, etc) to help reduce pain.
