breathing difficulty on right side, burping

Hi I've had really bad breathing problems for two weeks now but I think it all started when I choked on a piece of pizza a month ago. I choked on a piece of pizza at the end of may and swallowed it down because I started to panic and was alone. I didn't feel it go down properly. I felt ok until a couple of days after that when I could not breathe well. I was diagnosed with strep throat and given an inhaler. I felt better after the antibiotics, but I started burping up the whole month after that. Now these past two weeks have been horrible. I've been in and out of clinics because of breathing difficulty and pain on the right side of my chest. I feel like there is something there stopping my breathing from that side. I got an x-ray that said I have "nonspecific small fibrocalcific scars." So I got a ct scan and it says I have "focal minimal centrilobular emphysematous change of the anterior aspect of the part of the right middle and lower lobe as well as linguar division and left lower lobe, infra- and perihilar arears with small bullae." I haven't ever smoked and I'm in my twenties. Is it possible I aspirated the food into my bronchus and it's damaging my lungs?

I want to add something. I feel like my right side doesn't allow me to breathe right. My pft tests are coming back within normal range. I can't wear a bra anymore and feel pain right under my breasts at times. Breathing becomes even more difficult when I try to wear a bra. Please answer doc.
