Examination: Make sure that when you are seeing you gynecologist to tell the doc about your above symptom. They would be able to check the anal area and if there is any lesion they can also do a biopsy of the lesion. Hpv is a risk factor for cervical cancer as well as anal cancer. If there is no obvious finding on the anal area, you should see a gastroenterologist for a colonoscopy. Discuss with your md.

Maybe: Ibuprofen works fairly well as an analgesic. Just make sure there isn't any acute problems that needs treatment now. Best to be seen by your ophthalmologist just to make sure.

Yes: Within reason. The injection itself may initially irritate the tissues around the nerve and the nerve itself. Especially if you had what is called a transforaminal injection. It sounds as if your injection was given around the 3rd lumbar nerve, right ?

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.
