Most likely, you have either ruptured a disc in your spine or caused a muscle spasm that is pulling your spine out of alignment and now pressing against a nerve. The nausea and dizziness are often caused by anxiety that immediately sets in when a person experiences intense pain - this type of reaction to pain is completely normal.
But on the other hand if you had chest pain (retrosternal) induced by anxiety/excitement,and the pain remained for a shorter duration and relieved on rest or taking medication (nitroglycerin) then possibly it could be an anginal attack.In such case you must do an ECG done.
Feel free to ask questions if any.
