Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.Sudden onset dizziness can be due to the cervical spine instability. Given your back problem, this is a likely cause --from spondylosis or degenerative changes in spine. Ischemia or lack of blood flow to the cerbellar part of the brain can cause this as well. MRI scan of the spine and brain are required soon. Please go to the ER for further evaluation.
