Hello Ashley
I have read you query in detail. In my opinion you must go to ER and get your X-ray and Sonography done.
X-ray to rule out any minor fracture of the pelvic bone.
Sonography for any collection of blood and fluid in pelvic region. As you have cold, swelling and loss of appetite, there may be a chance of hematoma in pelvic region.
Its better to diagnose it earlier and get started with the treatment.
Please go to ER and consult a doctor and go through the investigation.
Best Wishes and have a speedy recovery.
