Cough with congestion, right chest, shoulder on fire. Pain getting worst. Solution?

i was sick for about three months alot of coughing, still coughings but nothing like before just a lot of congestion, so that s some background. Now for about a month my right chest to under my right shoulder blade is on fire! ive contended with the discomfort of being sick and with the shoulder pain without treatment because i am broke and have no insurance but the pain is really becoming worse and it has begun to concern me. I m curious as to what it could be and hope you may be able to shed some light. Thank you.

you have coughing and right side chest pain for past few months.
You should get done a chest x ray and see a chest physician .
this could be a chest infection which is causing the pain and cough.If pain is more on taking breath then there is more chances of it being a infection in the lungs which is coming to the covering of the lungs ie the pleura.
You may require antibiotics.
If you smoke stop doing that.
In doubt do reply
