Yes: See your dr. You need inhalers, probably 2 kinds. You may need an antibiotic. You may need a short course of Prednisone such as 20mg alternate days for 3 doses.

Yes indeed: In fact, "cough variant asthma" is one of the common explanations for what you describe. Did your albuterol inhaler touch it? Another entity is pertussis -- it's around thanks to the anti-immunization movement and your own immunization may not be enough to handle the load you meet. Yet another is medication allergy.

Watery eyes: Sounds like you have a viral illness. Take an over-the-counter decongestant and see if this helps. A saline nasal spray is also helpful. Drink plenty of fluids and get some rest. If you are still having problems after 7 days, call your primary doctor.

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.

Get tested: If you have high risk sexual behavior or use IV illicit drugs, get tested. Don't wait for symptoms because you might not have them until really late. Only one lymph node is not very dangerous but i would have a consultation with the physician to be on the safe side.
