I suppose the first thing is "why the hell did you come when your EHIC card was so close to expiry ?"This could have taken away your life savings and everything else if you had to be admitted to a hospital as an emergency case .
The cost of the EHIC card is zero ,the fine may also be little BUT to save you the cost of flights back to the UK look at medical insurance for the year in Bulgaria ,I believe most estate agents would help you on this if you are stuck.
Take nothing for granted in this country ,I don`t think you would have trouble getting back in ,but you could be flagged up and that is a pain ,but as you have not been taken to court you still have the right of free movement.
I do suggest you stop thinking I`m a Brit as the embassy will not help you on a lot of things you may think they should especially as the security situation in Europe is going to get a lot more severe and more detailed ID checks will be carried out
