Hello,
I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.
I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.
Your symptoms of backache (in night and early morning), bloated feeling, dizziness warrant investigations. The possibilities of diagnosis can be;
1) Pelvic inflammatory disease
2) Ovarian cyst
3) Urinary tract infection
4) Diverticulitis
5) Chronic appendicitis
6) Kidney stone.
Following investigations are necessary;
1) Complete blood count
2) Comprehensive metabolic panel
3) Ultrasound and CT scan of abdomen
4) MRI of back spine.
These should be able to give you the right diagnosis.
Meanwhile following measures would be helpful;
1) Avoid fatty and fried food.
2) Plenty of liquids.
3) Vegetables / fruits / salads.
4) Ibuprofen
5) Over the counter; Omeprazole and Dramamine.
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.
