Hi there ...

Thank you for the question ...

As you have already back issue , and constant headache , nausea and dizziness could be possibly because of Cervical spondylosis , in this case nerve compression in neck area could be reason of your symptoms .

It would be ideal for you to have X ray Cervical spine AP , lateral view and if possible MRI to see what is going wrong so that appropriate treatment may be offered to you .

Please get it done .

Good luck .

Please rate my answer as good service .

Thanks .

Do you have further quires ?

Cervical spine problems do not explain nausea and dizziness.

This sounds much more like a migraine headache.

You need to see a neurologist to sort this out.

These symptoms can also be from compromise of the blood supply at the real of the brain.

That would be checked with an MRI/MRA.
