Smoking making me dizzy + headache

I have been a regular smoker for 8 years.  I recently had a nasty virus but I am pretty much over it now.  Still got a stubborn very solid swollen gland in my neck and my tonsils are still visibly swollen.

anyway I have had to cut down over the past couple of weeks to 1 or 2 a day and when I was ill obviously they made me feel worse but yesterday I had 3 without problems.  Today I had one without a problem but I just had one a minute ago and it made me a bit dizzy and has given me a headache despite being on anti-inflammatory painkillers (strong ones)

The headache seems to be coming from my sinuses and a bit from the back of my head.

The neck gland, by the way, has been enlarged for the past ten years and gets bigger when I am sick.  When I get better it goes down but each time I get sick it goes down to a slightly larger size than before (i.e- slowly grows each time)  I have the same thing with a slightly smaller one in the back of my head which is the same spot where my head feels sore at the moment.

Any ideas?

You probably need to post this on a different forum.  Most all with heart issues have quit smoking, as I suggest you consider as an alternative to feeling as nasty as you do.  Millions of us have stopped smoking pimp sticks, it is a dirty and fatal addiction. I hope you let us know when you feel you have stopped smoking.  Best wishes.
