Right Diaphragm not working properly

I recently had Strep which caused me to vomit more violently than I have in my entire life. Since that time I have had trouble getting a good solid breath. I am an avid cyclist and this is making riding increasingly difficult. A routine x-ray shows that my right diaphragm is riding higher than my left. This has never been the case on any other x-ray. My pulmonologist has not heard of any cases similar to mine dealing with Strep and lung function. He explains how the nerve controls the diaphragm, and how nerve damage can cause it not to function properly, but says that nerve damage occurs from some sort of trauma which I have had none of.
Any similar cases or information would be appreciated.
