Need insight. no insurance. constant cramping.

Okay. This may get long. But I have no health insurance at the moment and am in need of advise. About a month ago I was very nauseous for about a week. Then the nausea faded and I experienced an excessive amount of watery discharge. Clear. No odor. It was in such excess I had to wear a pad for three days to keep from looking like I peed my pants at work. This amount of discharge is not normal to me at all, not even during ovulation. After that passed the next day I noticed a very sharp stinging sensation at my vaginal opening. Upon a self exam wig a mirror I could see the flesh at the opening was white...which is usually a sign of infection. The stinging continued for 3 days so I went in to see the GYN. I also mentioned to her the sharp pain in my lower right side and occassiinal leg pain I'd been having. She checked for STDs and viewed my discharge under a microscope. Tests came back clean for STD s. She was sure it wasn't a bacterial infection (I had then reoccurring in the last two years til I upped my vit d intake, so I agreed. This was nothing like BV) she gave me a broad antibiotic (doxycycline) because I had an increased number of white blood cells in my discharge but didn't know why. I went home. Before trying the doxy I decided to try an OTC yeast cream. Since the stinging felt similar to what I've read a yeast infection does, even though I had to discharge. That did no good. I had left over oral flatulence I decided to take invade my reoccurring BV had taken on a less smelly form...I've read it often happens with no odor. Anywho, took them for a 7 day course. My period ended up being 5 days late. Which I am unsure if it was caused by the antibiotics or not. But the stinging in my vagina stopped by day 5 of the ABX treatment.while on the flagyl I had awful diarrhea. Which finally subsided 3 days after I stopped. Now, the last day of my period I was hit with such an intense cramp I was literally begging God to make it stop outloud. I cramped a bit more throughout the day. Then by 7 pm I noticed my left stomach was very tender. Slightly swollen. And then the hours of diarrhea started. I eventually went to ER where they told me I just had a stomach virus. Well okay. 3 days of cramps and diarrhea. Then I had 3 or 4 days of normalcy. Now the cramps started back up last night and have been a constant irritant. The only time my stomach feels okay is when im soaking in a hot bath or have the heating pad on my tummy. I've had diarrhea a few times as well today. With occasional back ache. And thigh pain. Now, I duno if any or all of this could be related. Maybe its a bunch of different issues.maybe I got reinfected with the stomach virus I supposedly had. But no one else in my family has gotten ill. I'm just looking for some insight. I lost my insurance two weeks ago due to a change in jobs and I'm at my wits end. What do I do? Where do I go? What could it be?
