Could be unrelated: This really sounds like you atopy, to something and would recommended getting skin tested by an allergist, you can't have (real) colds all the time unless you were severely immunocompromised, which you are not, so you may just have allergies. The headaches could all be sinus related.

See your physician: With RA and possibly myasthenia, your immune system will be weakened and you will get sick easier. The medications for these problems will suppress your ability to fight infections. The headache and chest pains are not normal and need to be evaluated.
