Was diagnosed with acute cytomegalovirus (CMV). Now, a year later, I'm having difficulty breathing – inspiration, not expiration. I researched sarcoidosis and as that can happen after acute CMV; I believe I have many of the symptoms a year after my CMV diagnosis. I was just wondering if anyone out there has had this.
