Could it be PCOS or something else?

I am a 24 year old woman, basically healthy but overweight. I have had 3 succesfull pregnancies all c-section, i have had my appendix out at 16 and I have had a tubal ligation about 5 months ago. Now that you know my basic health history on to my question. I was 280 lbs at the end of my last pregnancy 17 months ago. Since then no matter what I did or how i ate i have only shed less than 10 lbs. I had a tubal ligation done 5 months ago and there was only slight complications. Apparently there was an unusually massive amount of scar tissue and the adhesions had actually sandwiched my left fallopian tube to my stomach and bowel. He cut away as much adhesions as he could but not all and said he could not risk cutting the tube itself, only clip it. He also said it was very likely that because of the amount of scar tissue on the tube it was a "dead" tube anyway and the test he performed post-clipping suggested it was successful. The right was cut and clipped sucessfully. Before the surgery i had been using the arm implant birth control, Implanon but was experiencing intense bouts of rage and no periods what so ever. Theimplant was removed during the tubal. I was given a single shot of Depo-prevera for backup birth control that would last 3 months. I was assured my menstral cycle and hormones would return to normal and not be affected by the tubal. 5 months later I have had one 2-day period where it was all old blood being evacuated from my system, no new blood. The cramps were AWFUL but were gone the day the period ended. Since then no period, or signs of one. My weight gain has not changed or decreased in anyway, i have piercing stomach pains sporadcally that are in the belly-button area (my tubal WAS done laproscopically but he had to make two EXTRA one-inch incisions on my left side of my abdomen) and the pains sometimes travel down into the pelvic area. They are not continuous more like pulsating when they happen. I feel tired all the damn time, I have taken two pregnancy tests both came out negative. I have had bouts of nausea and migraines as well as muscle cramping. during two of my pregnancies small non-threatening cysts were noted on one of my ovaries but there was no intervention and they disappeared as expected. I have heard of PCOS, two of mr friends have it, but I dont have ALL the symptoms. Example, no unusual facial hair growth. I have no insurance anymore so going to the doctors or hospital is scary since i already have bills i cannot pay from them. Anyone have any idea what I could be looking at or what I should watch out for to let me know it is time to visit an ER.
