Did he look like he was turning to reach his hind end? Or was he spinning more aimlessly?

looked like he may have been trying to reach his hind end, but when he stopped and I tried to touch him he yipped and cried

OK. It's difficult to tell from the description if he has a physical issue (such as impacted anal glands) or if this could be a neurologic issue such as a seizure.

I recommend having him evaluated by your local vet tomorrow. I would start with a physical exam, checking his anal glands, and some blood work to rule out any underlying organ dysfunction.

he seems fine now....if is belly area hurts him could it be kidney stones??

Kidney stones (renoliths) are extremely uncommon in dogs, and generally they do not show any symptoms unlike humans.
