I've been having some lower abdominal pain, what can cause this?

I'm eighteen years old and married on the 22 of July this year. I am sexually active. I am on the depo shot. Besides the shot, my husband and I do not use any other form of protection. We never have. The pain is worse on my right side than it is on my left. It almost feels as if it's echoing from one part of my stomach to the other. The pain is about 4 fingers on each side of my belly button. It's a very weird sensation and very uncomfortable. I've been getting dull headaches in my temples as well. And when I lay down at night (only at night) I get panicky. My heart rate speeds up, I become uncurably nauseous and I get very light headed. I've also been having very strange dreams. Why my sister got pregnant, she complained of unorthodox dreaming as well. A few months ago, I thought I was pregnant. I had cravings for strange foods, I couldn't bare to look at raw meat and I was getting severe morning sickness. I took 5 at home tests which were all negative, but I felt convinced, so I went to the doctor. My blood test came back negative. Even my doctor was surprised. The symptoms soon evaporated, but now I'm left with new symptoms. I've done a lot of my own research but none of it seems to make sense. Everything seems to be pointing toward me being pregnant. Do you think I could be pregnant? I don't want to get all jittery and nervous about it again and be disapointed once more when the tests all run negative.
