complications after spinal tap

I had a spinal tap done a week ago and I have been having all kinds problems. My questions is, am I suppose to experience these problems: severe back pain, burning sensation in my feet, neck pain and stiffness, constipation, a dry cough, swelling on the right side of my back where the kidney is located? If not, tell me when and if I need to see my neurologist or the doctor who performed the spinal tap. I've been looking over the internet for answers, but I haven't found the answers that I need. I am really concerned and I don't know what to do or think. I would really appreciate your answers to my questions.
