Brief Answer:
Presence of hCG in urine sample..

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

The darkness of test line is dependent on amount of hCG in urine sample. Pregnancy is the most common condition when hCG is excreted in the urine. Therefore in your case, we can consider pregnancy as the most likely cause.

Have you missed period? If yes, you should consider visiting obstetrician to evaluate for pregnancy.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.

Brief Answer:
Symptoms match with...

Detailed Answer:
Symptoms of pregnancy and symptoms of those non pregnant condition match. Therefore I would not rely more on the symptoms to ascertain pregnancy.

But as I mentioned earlier, hCG secreting non pregnant condition are not very common and in all possibilities this is pregnancy. Please go ahead and get an ultrasound scan by your obstetrician.
