Occaionally I have trouble breathing in.  I feel like I can continue to breathe out, but cannot take a breath in.

Having trouble with breathing-in but not breathing out is characteristic of a condition in which the vocal cords inappropriately partially close during breathing-in.  This condition is called Vocal Cord Dysfunction.  It can also occur with vocal cord spasm.

Pulmonary function testing with attention to inspiratory air flow followed by direct examination of your larynx (voice box) by a lung specialist or an ENT specialist would be a reasonable approach to your problem.

Good luck
