Hello how are you, it is 9 days after menstrual and I wake up yesterday morning with extremely painful lower back pain and 2 very light spot, lil help?

Unclear: I can't put the two together but the dizziness could be inner ear or other circulation issues and you need to discuss it with your physician.
