Hello,
Systemic poison ivy comes from breathing in smoke arising from fires that contain plant matter covered in poison ivy. If this occurs, the urushiol oil can enter the lungs and set off a severe although unusual reaction that can last as long as 5 weeks. Since you have had the symptoms since two years, hence it cannot be due to poison ivy but due to some other lesion.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
