Does it hurt when you breathe in? Is it a sharp pain? If so you could have pleuracy. This is inflammation between the ribs and can cause very sharp pain when you breathe in. You may need antibiotics for it.  CVS pharmacies have a nurse practitioner now and I wonder if they may take medicare. Do you not have supplemental? Do doctors not take medicare alone? In the mean time you can try a hot water bottle on the area and see if that relieves the pain. If you symptoms are different then disregard the hot water bottle and see a doctor if you can.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

This could be renal colic. Small stones can obstruct the passage of urine and when the body tries to 'push' against the blockade this results in colic, which is severe attacks of pain. The other causes for the pain could be infections of the bowel, prolapsed intervertebral disc or inflammatory diseases of the colon. Please consult your primary care physician who will do blood tests, x- rays and may ask for an ultrasonogram to find out the cause for the pain. In the meantime you can take OTC naproxen for relief from pain.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

It doesn't sound like pleuracy then. You should find a doctor that takes Medicare with the supplemental. As the doctor suggested above, it may be related to the kidneys and maybe not the lungs.
