I forgot to tell u one morething...this dizziness started after i took a pain killer (Nimulid ) on the 2nd day of my period.

Dizziness can sometime be caused by nimulid but it not supposed to cause low blood pressure. You should prefer Tylenol over nimulid. Nothing sounds serious so please don't stress yourself and drink as much fluid as you can.
