I have had difficulty taking a deep breath for over a year and a half. Wasted my time going to pulmonologists until finally it was diagnosed as severe voice box inflammation. Tons of GERD meds and diet changes have done nothing to take away the inflammation. I found the link below and plan to ask my ENT at my next visit...Rare but maybe possible. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge about Toxocariasis and inflammation. This is what I have found so far:

What does anyone think?
