Anyone Who S Had Tubes Tied Help Me Out

Hi all, I am so frustrated. Can anyone relate or share their experience if they have any similar situation? I had my tubes cauterized/ligated 7.5 years ago. Over the past few months my period has become very irregular. I used to have it for 7 days every 32 days or so and it was always VERY heavy. On average I went through about 40 pads in the first 4-5 days and then maybe 10 more over the last 2 days. I would wake up in the morning on day 2 and 3 and RUN to the bathroom because it would gush and leak down my legs even with 2 overnight pads on. (sorry if tmi!). For the past 4 months my period has started after 29 days and has been light spotting day 1, medium (approximate a dozen pads) day 2, light (maybe 4 pads) day 3 and spotting needing only a pantyline day 4. I dont know what's going on and I'm getting worried. I have taken OTC hpt's every month but they always come out neg except for one last week that had a faint line but that faded after maybe 15 minutes. My stomach is really bloated and my friend says it looks like a pregnant belly. It's fairly solid but only in the belly button area and up. I have had on and off nausea for at least a month and strange feelings on the right side of my belly. The gloating has made it uncomfortable to sleep on my belly unless I tilt slightly to one side and bend my leg up for support. I have on and off headaches, have had a few pimples and one cyst under my arm (I never have acne- even when I was a teen my friends cursed me for my clear skin), I have pressure in my pelvis several times a day that takes about 5 minutes to pass. I have been having really strange dreams and have had a runny nose for weeks. I have pressure if I do not urinate and I have to "go" every 2 hours on average and I wake up at least once a night to go and I never did that. I have been extremely sensitive to smells that no one else around me ever seems to smell and have a medicinal taste in my mouth most of the time. The night sweats plague me every few days and im hot most of the time during the day. Is pregnancy a possibility even though tests are negative? I downloaded a program on my phone to doc_ment all of my symptoms about 3 weeks ago because I started wondering just how many things felt off for me. I am so stressed because where I live the clinics only help people who are homeless and I don't have medical insurance!!! :( I already have 3 kids that are 13,9 and 7.5. I never had trouble conceiving and all of my kids were conceived pretty much instantly. I am divorced from their dad and in a different long term relationship and we never use any means of birth control because I thought I can't get pregnant. I am worried that something is wrong. I wasn't planning on more kids but if it happened I would be ok with it. However I'm scared of something ELSE being wrong since the hpt's come out neg. If anyone has any advice or can relate and share your outcomes, please do! I'm ready to go to the ER just so I can make sure nothings dangerously wrong with my insides. Thanks for reading this. Any helpful comments are very welcome!

So far I haven't had any replies. Perhaps no one can relate? But I'm updating this and hoping for some luck. :). Yesterday I went to the ER and the Dr seemed as clueless as me. He did an ultrasound of my ovaries and uterus. He said no fibroids or cysts so thankfully I can rule that out. Blood and urine came out normal. He said my urine was a bit dark so even though it tested normal he was going to give me 3 days of antibiotic Bactrim just in case it's the start of a uti. The hospital here has no gynecology Dept apparently so they couldn't do a pap or a hormone check. He asked me when all my physical symptoms started (aside from the change in cycle) and I told him 3-4 weeks ago. he said since my abdomen is swollen and my lower ab and both sides of my lower back are tender he thinks I should still see a gyno. :( I feel lost. I'm not imagining these things- they wake me up from a sleep! I know these are hormonal issues. I had all of these issues when prego with my kids but since my tubes were tied years ago I keep thinking it can't be that. And the thought of ectopic is scary and ER wouldn't check for that. They said gyno has to order a test for that. ???? I lived in another state prior to last year and I had great hospitals, clinics and dr's. I feel like the medical care here $ux. :( anyone? Suggestions? Advice? Please?
