Your symptoms can be due to;

Acute appendicitis

Meckel's diverticulitis


Ovarian twist.

I can understand the lack of insurance and cost associated with the medical issue.

But you need an ultrasound, may be a CT scan and blood counts for the evaluation.

You may go to an urgent care or emergency room.
