In brief: ER

I do not know what time frame is but you should go to the ER and be evaluated.
Your back plus a thorough neurological exam should be done, along with blood work.

In brief: You should call

Your doctor. It is possible that you have a neuritis from irritation by blood.
However, the fever is concerning. It could be a sign of something serious, like meningitis.
