Could Be: Given your symptoms and temporal relationship to eating watermelon, I would recommend getting allergy tested, and avoiding watermelon and similar foods until you get evaluated.

Labs: I'm not seeing lab results, sounds like much of this can be explained by thyroid disorder, but need labwork to evaluate for this, auto-immunue, and other issues, be sure to follow up with your doctor closely until issues are explained and resolved.

Probably: Assuming you are otherwise healthy, the answer is probably, especially if you have had a recent cold, and/or plane travel. Call your doc. Rx may include something to open nasal passages, something to thin out mucus, something to kill germs.

Sounds like a virus: Time, rest, fluids, and patience will generally resolve thtese symptoms. If they persist, then it might be worth a visit to your doctor, but these are both incredibly common and entirely self-limited. Treat pain with Acetaminophen or motrin, and try some warm tea for soothing your sore thorat.

Sleep apnea: Daytime fatigue is a very common problem associated with multiple medical problems. The p[roblem becomes "the chicken or the egg"
sleep apnea causes obesity, Insulin resistance, hypogonadism, as well as hypertension.
You should focus on sleep hygeine first and get a 2 step sleep study. The other medical conditions cannot be controlled with untreated sleep apnea.
