blood donation: The low blood pressure and increased heart rate are not unusual post blood donation. Fever is unusual and if you aren't cooking up a cold and it isn't gone promptly, i'd consult your dr.

It depends: Generally Aspirin is still safe in those with a history ulcers so long as acid medications such as omeprazole, nexium, (esomeprazole) protonix, prevacid, etc are taken along with it to prevent recurrence. You should have taken a similar medication to heal the ulcer. If you are allergic to Aspirin or intolerant for some other reason a medication such as Plavix may be reasonable. Discuss with your doctor.

Could a collapsed lung cause the same symptoms as subcutaneous emphysema?

Yes: A collapsed lung (known as a pneumothorax) can cause subcutaneous emphysema when air moves from the chest through muscle and into muscle planes below skin. Subcutaneous emphysema is usually a sign that a pneumothorax is present. Typical signs of a pneumothorax include dyspnea (shortness of breath), chest pain, and fast respiratory rate.

See your doctor: These extra symptoms are just more severe migraines. Migraines are the body's warning system. Something is stressing you that is making your migraines more complex. You may have infection, allergic reaction, toxic reaction to food or drug, or some emotional crisis. You need a good medical checkup.
