Lump on back of left top side of my head.

i am a 34 year old female mother 0f 3 kids. I have been married 14 years. I woke up 3 days ago with a sore neck. I thought i slept wrong took advil and forgot about it untill meds wore off then i would feel it again. The next day I woke up my head felt sore. I felt a large lump about size of a 50 cent peice on the back upper left side of my head. I also felt 3 smaller knots on my head on the left and right side of my head. The next day I had swollen lymph nodes all up and down my left side of my neck. Now today my kids have swollen lymph nodes on the left side of the neck and sore neck. They also have run a low grade fever . I dont know if I have because i had been taken pain reliver for neck stiffness . My kids have insurance so I can take them to the doctor tomorrow but as for me I dont. I have no idea if the lump and the lymph nodes are connected, but Im scared. I have 3 kids to take care of and i have no insurance. help!
