    I had pnuemonia in oct and since then have had breathing problems.Ive had every lung test you could name and also had an angiogram.All came back fairly normal.Ihave problems swallowing,bending,using stairs,yawning and talking.Could this be Vocal cord dysfunction.I have not been able to work and it is so frustrating.

    I was diagnosed with VCD, but after getting really worried one day about the feeling in my throat and shortness of breath, I went to the hospital and they said it was just an infection and some post nasal drip.

    I would go to an ENT and have my vocal cords scoped (painless) and find out for sure.
