You could have developed Reactive Airway Disease following Legionnaire`s pneumonia, which is known to happen. You may need some broncho dilators in the form of inhalers and some other inflammatory drugs. But for this you have to consult a Chest Physician who can examine you and prescribe the necessary treatment.
