I am sorry to know about your symptoms,

Based on what you mentioned,it seems that your symptoms could be due to underlying renal(stones) or gall bladder pathology(chronic) ,ovarian (cyst)which may lead to similar dull pain as you described,so I will advise that you see a physician who can do a physical exam,sonogram to rule this possibility out.
There is also a possibility that your symptoms could be due to musculoskeletal origin (costochondritis-inflammation of rib cartilage) but it seems less likely as you mentioned there is no pain on touch,still a physician physical exam is required to rule it out.
No fever makes infectious causes less likely.
