Don't know what you have done since Oct.,but mine turned out to be Paralyzed diaphragm. Very discouraging trying to find treatment for it, I have the impression that unless your breathing becomes extremely restricted, there is no treatment. Probably you need a sniff test if you havent had one yet. Let me know if you find out anything. In the meantime, google paralyzed diaphragm.
